White Owl

The final tasting from the Whisky Cast “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 )   This is an unusual, possibly unique, whisky, aged for 10 years and then charcoal filtered until clear and aimed at the cocktail and mixology markets.    The nose has some alcohol, cooked apples and cotton candy.  Very sweet, floral and aromatic.  The taste at first was dominated by vanilla, almost vanilla extract, with a nice mouth feel.   The taste also had notes of corn, pine and with addition of water some oak and green wood notes came though.  When left for while a really strong coconut nose and taste developed as well.  Interesting stuff.  On the 1 to 5 scale of WhiskyCast I gave it a score of 2.5 and on my scale of 1 – 4 stars I gave it 2 stars, it is the only one of the three we tasted I would actually drink at party if offered.
