McCormick Distilling Co, Illinois Tasting Notes

Posted: March 28, 2016 in American Whiskies, Corn

Platte Valley 3 year old Straight Corn Whiskey 40%

Tasted: Dec 2015

Soft and very corny aromas but not too oily. Lovely, crisp lime/citrus balances. Quite young but not spirity with some subtle toasted oak notes along with apricot and nuts.

The palate is crisp and fresh with a good depth of lightly oiled corn and amazingly no burnt toffee or caramel, just youngish corn. Good length with hints of toasty oak and marzipan.
