Do Good Distillery California Wheat Bourbon Whiskey
750 ML (Standard)
Here is the sweetness... Brioche bread, vanilla ice cream and green malt. Fresh mint, dried apricots and toasted new oak. It still carries those wonderful green and tart notes I very much liked on the nose but more subtle and integrated with all the sweet notes the palate added. Ground ginger and Golden Oreos. Adding water didn't work quite that well on the palate like it did on the nose though. I lost the layering, a little flat now... I might pass the water business next time I sip it.
Spearmint leaves and vegetable broth. Stewed root vegetables, dandelion greens and bitter greens. Steamed asparagus, sourdough bread and fresh dill. A green, vegetal and tart nose which I didn't expect from a wheated bourbon at all but I am really digging it... A few drops of water improves the nose even more. Chalky and dusty now and less intense in terms of tartness: Clay soil, dried parsley and dill pickles.
Medium with some green banana peppers, malt and oak staves.
California Bourbon is distilled from the crops of State of California only and labeled with Jim's favorite blue and yellow colors to echo the old California license plates he recalled from his childhood... It is a wheated bourbon distilled from a corn, red wheat and malted barley mash bill and aged for two years in barrels. The label indicates the batch number as #3 and the bottle number as #190.
