PLATTE VALLEY Straight Missouri Sour Mash 5 years old 80,6%

Well balanced, moderately oily corn benefits from confident support of spices.

Smooth buttery corn. Nothing else, really but very tasty all the same. Nice creamy texture.

More corn abetted by short bursts of helpful white pepper. Perhaps a bit subdued.


This is the original bottling from the McCormick distillery in Missouri. I have never tried the current version thus being unable to make any comparisons. Complexity is not the first word that springs to mind here. Still, a charming little rascal. Approach with an open mind if you can find it.

Rating: 8/10
