Woodinville Straight Bourbon. Image courtesy Woodinville Whiskey Co. Unlike most Bourbons, Woodinville Whiskey uses a pot still instead of column stills. That leads to a slightly different character, as evident in the charred oak and molasses notes on the nose, along with honey, brown sugar, and a hint of dark chocolate. The taste is spicy, but well-balanced with hints of clove and black pepper complemented by honey, molasses, brown sugar, and a hint of anise. The finish is long with lingering spices balanced by a nice sweetness. Excellent! (June, 2020)
