For Los Angeles Whiskey Society – Barrel 1 – 69.1%
My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Dark copper
Nose: Very strong and sweet, cherries, bitter almonds, hints of cannabis (!), all kinds of spices, notably cinnamon, mixed herbs.
Palate: Doppelbock beer of the Paulaner Salvator kind, amarena cherries, dark chocolate, oranges, all spices and herbs from the nose, hints of chili, rather fizzy mouthfeel.
Finish: Extremely long, fruity and spicy
Overall: I could nose this forever. The beer provenance is very noticeable on the palate, the density of flavours is stunning. But Distilling bottle-ready beer makes this whiskey hideously expensive.
Rating: 91/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
