Whippersnapper Oregon Spirit Whiskey--a precocious young'un

Poindexter | Dec 17, 2010 09:10 AM

I partook of a wee dram of this last night and I must say it is mighty tasty. It's part barley and part Kentucky corn whitedog, distilled in an alembic pot and then aged in oak, but only for a year (hence the name).
Unsurprisingly, given the mashbill, the taste has aspects of bourbon and aspects of scotch, but the overall effect is almost that of an Irish whisky.
If you want to give that special lush on your list -- or me -- an unusual and tasty treat in their stocking, look for a bottle of this stuff (cool bottle with a wax seal too).
