Door number 7 of the Drinks by the Dram American Whiskey Advent Calendar is open and a sample of Mellow Corn, bottled at 50% is revealed!
This whiskey has some stronger peppery notes on the nose together with a warm cereal, nuts and a hint of tobacco flavour mixed through it. The palate has some dryer cinnamon and nutmeg notes that mix with vanilla, dried banana, leather, ginger and corn flavours.
The finish is short and filled with spices , red apples and kurkuma. This one feels a bit like a strange expression to me but great exploration done again in the world of American Whiskey! Thanks #DrinksbytheDram for sharing this #WhiskeyAdvent !
