My Corn Whisky Tasting Notes, Week 4

I am now into week 4 of maturing my corn whisky. For background to this project, click here.

I haven’t posted tasting notes every week as the changes are often quite small, but I thought I would post an update here as I recently tasted my whisky once again (it recommends tasting every week). There is still more development to come….

nose: oils from the corn still dominate; there’s a slight agave note now as well and a bit of a wet grassy aroma which I don’t love

taste: it’s sweet, with lots of heat in the mouth and there are lovely creamy vanilla and cinnamon notes…it’s still very harsh and needs some more time in the wood, for sure

finish: long, sweet corn bread, vanilla custard, oak

conclusion: I am starting to get a little bit of a sense of where this is going, but it is interesting to be in a position where I am not entirely sure! we’ll see where the oak takes it next…the part that is the most interesting for me is trying to figure out how quickly changes take place….
