Alaska Outlaw

Country: USA

Type: American Whiskey
Bottler: Distiller
ABV: 40%
Score: 73 points

This whisky was distilled in Palmer, Alaska, in the heart of the Matanuska Valley from locally grown barley with a bit of grain spirit from potatoes added in. The nose is malty, mild, and subtle with hints of hazelnut, maple. brown sugar, and a touch of fresh berries. The taste is thin and light at first with a strong peppery hit that develops quickly, a slight licorice touch and a hint of bitterness. The finish is gingery and aromatic, and hits the back of the throat while leaving just a bit of spice on the tongue. Drinkable, but barely.
