Buffalo Trace White Dog (Wheated Mash)

This was the first whiskey we sampled in the WhiskyCast "white whiskey" virtual tasting I did in December 2011.  (If you are interested you can download the audio file from iTunes or www.whiskycast.com.)   Despite a very high ABV of 62.5% the nose was not dominated by alcohol and was quite sweet.  I picked up a fresh paint and solvent notes and some cooked cereal, possibly corn.   The alcohol did come through in the taste along with sweet candy corn.  With water the alcohol dropped and I picked up some more discernible bourbon notes like caramel.   One for cocktails perhaps as I can't see anyone reaching for this to sip.  On the 1 to 5 scale of WhiskyCast I gave it a score of 2 and on my scale of 1 – 4 stars I gave it 1 star.
