Dry Fly Port Finished Wheat Whiskey
United States - Washington - Spokane

Since creating its whiskey, the Dry Fly team was pondering how to do a local take on ageing it in a port barrel. Luckily they connected with Townshend Cellar, and the whiskey is finished in its huckleberry port casks. Once this is gone, don't expect to see it for another year.

Dry Fly Port Finished Wheat Whiskey - American Whiskey

american whiskeyPeggy Noe Stevens – 8.5
Nose: Expressive wood sugars and almost custard-like presence. Dried apricot and honey. Gold raisin and toasted pecans.
Palate: Warm currants and citrus with hints of mint and herbal facade. Attractive brown sugar and bready flavors that also nods to the grain. Slight cherry note.
Finish: Crisp heat on the finish that displays a controlled spice note.
Comment: The layered complexity is attractive. The grains climb softly around that lovely touch of heat.

Susan Reigler – 8.3
Nose: Light cherries with vanilla cookies and some hints of caramel all appear first, followed by toasted wheat crackers.
Palate: Stoned wheat crackers with more vanilla. Fruit has changed to ripe apples and there's a herbal note, plus cinnamon.
Finish: The cinnamon really comes to the fore here, while the grain and fruit tend to fade.
Comment: Well-balanced whiskey that's very fine on its own and complex enough to stand up in a cocktail.
