A very interesting whisky, the first to be legally distilled in Texas, made from blue corn (not sure what that is, but it sounds impressive) and, remarkably, being the recipient of a Double Gold medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. Definitely one to watch.
I usually drink single malt but sometimes buy something a bit different to try.Nose and taste distinct from other types of whisk(e)y - creamy mouth feel, slightly sweet and custardy, oats, hint of malted milk biscuits. Not complex and no long finish but slight new spirity aftertaste. Easy summer sipper.If you fancy a ?malternative? for this money I would instead recommend a rye whiskey. High West Rendez-Vous is my current favourite but can be hard to track a bottle down.

Utterly unique. The single greatest thing I have ever drunk. Words can do it no justice and it is impossible to describe. It is nothing short of miraculous.

Blue corn is quite common actually, mexican people use it to make corn tortillas, it's either made with blue corn flour or white corn flour.

Just to note- According to the company's own website, this is made with 100% blue Hopi heirloom corn. There is no mention of rye anywhere. This should make it appropriate for coeliacs.

I disagree with Hans. Not being a Stroh 80 drinker I found this to be quite a unique flavour. I'm not sure what Blue Corn is either but it certainly gives this Whiskey a taste different from any other.You'll either it love it or be indifferent to it. Im the former.

Having tried this, I find it very hard to believe it won double gold, but then again I like drinking Stroh 80 so what do I know?
