Whiskey. It’s pretty neat.

Bourbon, Rye, Scotch, Irish Whiskey, Moonshine. They all fall under the broad classification, that is – Whiskey. Whiskey, or ‘whisky’ depending on your location, is an alcoholic beverage made from grain mash. Different grains are used to make different varieties including barley, corn, rye, and wheat. Whiskey is usually aged in wooden casks and made of charred white oak, which tends to give many whiskeys that delicious smokey flavor. So many different names and flavors but easily the most delicious and versatile spirit enjoyed all over the world. This week, as an homage to IBMA (International Bluegrass Music Association) we have decided to sell a southern whiskey flight:
Bookers Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey – Aged for about 6 years this bourbon is 128 proof, the highest of the flight. When you try this bourbon whiskey you will get a robust, sweet and smooth flavor with some cedar undertones.
Bakers Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey – Aged for 7 years with 107 proof. Tasting notes for this bourbon are a malty flavor with a black pepper spiciness and hints of lemon zest.
Defiant Whisky – From Golden Valley, North Carolina this whiskey is 82 proof with flavors of black pepper spice and a caramel sweetness. It is aged for only 60 days but this youthful whiskey is certainly delicious.
Troy and Sons Moonshine – Distilled in Asheville, North Carolina with a proof on the lower end of the list, at 80. This Whiskey is clear because it is not barrel aged and is created primarily with a white heirloom corn. Troy and Sons is smooth to the taste with hints of macadamia nut.
Stop by and try these amazing Southern Whiskeys! They pair well with bluegrass.
