I rec'd this from David over at NCRenegade, here.
This is outstanding, Patriots. It means our III Brand is growing, it means our roots are growing deeply into the minds and Souls of Americans. This is a good thing.
I also know a III Beer and III Vodka are in the works. There are two III Patriots in Pennsylvania who make a superb selection of brandy's and bourbon and more.
Here's the note included in the email, I believe written by Hans, a brilliant mind in our community who contributes often at NCRenegade, and who I have had the honor of meeting because of Brock.
On a road trip to the Carolinas I picked up 2 regional whiskies. This is from South Carolina, from a new distillery. The newness of both the distillery and spirit are worrying, but I'm all for giving it a shot. Here's to novelty!
Its fair enough. Simple and direct is worlds better than fluff and marketing.
Lots of grains, thankfully, and not just a sea of corn and rye. A bit of burn, owing to the abv. I actually find a bit of leather and raisin, hard oak and charcoal smoke with a strong corn and wheat top.
Touch of water fixes the hard edge. The result is a bit unusual. Very sweet front of raw sugar and corn meets a big base of oak and cigar smoke. A bit of mocha and a big, oaty wave come in the middle and it ends cornbread and sweet tea. Odd, but enjoyable. Very impressive for a young and new Bourbon.
