Staff Pick Notes

This oddball from Heaven Hill is the only straight corn whiskey still in production at a major distillery. Corn whiskey is quite unlike the other American categories as its mashbill requirement is 80% of the starring grain (rather than 51% in the case of bourbon, rye, wheat, malt, and rye malt whiskies) and it doesn’t have to see wood at all--hence the various clear “moonshines” out there (some of which are grain neutral spirits and not whiskey at all--caveat emptor). Furthermore, If aged, it must be in uncharred barrels, new or used. This being not only straight but also bottled-in-bond, you’re looking at four years of aging, which has given the juice more than enough time to lose its white-dog qualities and become truly enjoyable. This one is not for Pappy-chasers, but those desirous of mastering the full spectrum of American whiskey.
