Corti Brothers 7 Year Old Exquisite Whiskey 375ml

SKU #1180926

Those looking for Bourbon flavor will want to look elsewhere, as the sweetness of the Mission Del Sol wine is the star of the show. I never in a million years would have guessed wine-enhanced Bourbon. The nose is all molasses and brown sugar, but the spiciness of the Bourbon keeps the palate from being anywhere near as sweet. Rich, however, it is. Big tawny Port flavor with a dash of dried herbs. The finish is all Bruichladdich circa 2007, back when they were releasing those big, oily whiskies finished in red wine casks. There's that earthy, vinous character on the back end. Knowing that it is indeed Bourbon, however, and not single malt, you can taste the oak and the clear Bourbon profile for about two seconds on the initial sip, but moments after that it gets buried by a gigantic wave of Amador County Mission Del Sol. Easily the most exciting and unique whiskey I've tasted this year. And one of the few moments in recent memory--if not the only moment--where I've looked at the price and said, "That's it?!" Must have. Buy two or three.

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. 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.
