Just like they drink in the back hills of Georgia. A great gift idea! There is a very high alcohol content to this 'old style' whiskey and many describe the taste on the palate as sweet and simple. The taste can be described as white lightning.
There's loads of fresh detail in this viognier-dominated blend from Fairview vintner Charles Back. A lemon thyme and green olive brightness lifts its buxom core of pear fruit, while salty honeycomb and macadamia nut undertones keep it savory. Its richness, which derives from three months on the gross lees rather than from any oak treatment, calls for hearty fare, be it fatty tuna or pork chops.
