Surprisingly smooth, aromatic and flavorful for an unaged spirit. Wish I would have purchased a 2nd bottle.

Cool. Maybe this clear whiskey trend is due to the show moonshiners.

It was rated in the the Spring issue of Whiskey Advocate. It did well for an unaged whiskey, but at $50? More than the SB. I think I read that they are going to age it.

I've tried it and for me it had a weird soapy/mineral taste to it, I couldn't quite figure it out.

It has a unique character. The nose didn't has a vapor burn, and taste was fruity and almost cereal-like. It's a nice change from corn-based spirits.

I bought two bottles as soon as they hit the stores. Both from the first batch. Haven't opened either. One will be the first unopened bottle in my Jack collection.

A neighbor of mine let me try some of his. It was the first time I had ever tried an unaged rye. I found it to be a little harsh and tasted like yeast. I guess that is just a characteristic of an unaged whisky.

Any cocktail suggestions?

Don't know how this mixes...maybe try a simple (clear) soft drink like Ginger ale or lemon-lime.

The Griffin's perfecto may pair well with it (try it neat first). I have one resting from a recent purchase.

I really liked it, had a tequila-ish flavor profile (IMO), pretty sure I will track down more eventually. I think there are still bottles available around here.
