the one and only BUCKWHEAT
"A new breed of American whiskey is born."

This rare buckwheat spirit is 80% buckwheat, 20% small grains.

Four Stars, "Highly Recommended," F. Paul Pacult's Spirit Journal, Dec. 2012

F. Paul Pacult's notes:

Pretty brown color, engaging dry aromas of chalk, cement and dry earth that are mingled with caramel and cocoa bean in the first whiffs after the pour; seven minutes later, the nose is awash in cereal grain, honeyed and toasted marshmallow notes that somehow work. Entry is gently, succulently sweet, intensely grainy and rich in vanilla extract; mid palate goes deeper than the entry or the breakfast cereal front as the taste profile enlarges by the nanosecond to include zesty flavors of beeswax, caramel, nougat/candy bar and cane syrup. A new breed of American whiskey is born.

"Very good, Strongly Recommended" 88 point rating in the 2013 Ultimate Spirit Challenge

Ultimate Challenge tasting notes:

Grainy aromas of wood chips, soil, and buckwheat have a hint of vanilla in the background. It is dry and leathery in the mouth with dark smoky flavors or roasted barley and cedar. Smokiness is long lasting.
