This is the second release of Charbay's Whiskey dislilled from Pilsner, which leaves its impression on the spirit from start to finish - spice, hops and barley - all in balance. 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "This whiskey reads like a cross between Bourbon and a fine Cognac, delivering rich aromas of caramel, espresso and creme brulee. Although initially brisk and spicy, the flavor fades to a long burnt-toffee finish and bracing bite. Feels warm and soft on the tongue." (03/11)

As whiskeys go, this was certainly one of the most unusual-- and creative-- whiskeys I've had the pleasure to taste. The first sniff (or two) offers up lots of wildflower honey and hops, followed by rye bread dough, dark chocolate nibs, aromatic eucalyptus leaves, maybe even a touch of bergamot oil. The palate entry is slightly bitter from the hops, but is quickly masked by florals, vanilla custard, cedar chest, rye spiciness, candied ginger and fresh orange zest. Worth it? Absolutely. Not your everyday whiskey, mind you, but certainly one to enjoy for a long time.

The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.

California

- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.
