Tasting Notes for Captain Don's Whisky
Captain Don's Whisky is a strange and mysterious whisky, unlike any you've ever tried. The whisky is made from corn, rye, and sorghum, which gives it an oddly sweet taste, balanced by the rye's spice. It is matured in new oak casks, with tobacco leaves added, which also balances the sweetness with a smoky, lingering aftertaste. It's delicious, and novel enough that any shortcomings are overshadowed by the sheer uniqueness of the flavor profile. It's the first Caribbean Whisky!
Nose: A bit young, this is not an old whisky. Aged for 2,5 years. Elements of sweet oak and frankly an indescribable complexity
Palate: Smooth, at only 80 proof, it doesn't have much bite, and none of the oiliness of some scotches. It also somehow avoids all of the harshness in the nose, becoming a delicious summer whisky, while the raw tobacco flavoring gives it enough body to satisfy on a chilly winter day.
Finish: Pure tobacco, similar to a good cigar or pipe. None of the sourness of a cigar, though, and with just enough lingering sweetness.
