Chris Carlsson of Spirits Review: Apple Brand

“First Impression: Subtle apple and vanilla scents and undertones of oak, pepper and hints of leather, tobacco, from the wood aging.

Taste: Apples,vanilla and lingering notes of tobacco, char, leather that develop after a bit. As it is only aged for 1 year it still tastes and smells strongly of apples (in a nice way) the wood has not overwhelmed the apple tastes but is extremely smooth. A lot of calvados this age tastes like it would take the paint off a car.

Appearance: Straw colored, a trace more yellow than a cognac of similar age: very small particles/sediment - but you have to look hard. Light coating on the glass when you swirl it, a crenellated edge on swirling with long thin legs developing after a bit.

Final Thoughts: This is a very nice and subtle apple brandy, especially for one that is only a year old.”

Judd's Wreckin' Ball

Judd's Wreckin' Ball

The taste of this spirit carries a perfect sweet corn character while a note of cucumber skin adds complexity.

Refined version of an American classic, our corn whiskey is fresh off from the still and completely un-aged. Aromas of sweet corn bread and oats with a subtle underlying of dried fruit component.

Whiskey Advocate - Score 84

“Whiskey Advocate - Score 84 : Judd's Wreckin' Ball Whiskey

Rich, full and clean cornbread nose with just a hint of herbal zip; not what I expected at all from a white whiskey with a jokey name and label. Light, vaporuos corn glides over the tongue with a hint of fresh grass, easing off the palate to an airy corn finish; a lingering thought of corn. Corn eau de vie, with an accomplished touch on the still; very impressive. -Vol. 21, #3

Chris Carlsson of Spirits Review
Judd's Wreckin' Ball Corn Whiskey

A vey impressive first product by a new distiller. One of the best Corn Whiskeys we have tasted. We have high hopes for anything else he produces and look forward to his further efforts !

Notes: From the people at Hidden Marsh Distillery who brought us Bee Vodka comes a corn whiskey made from 100 % organic heirloom corn. Distilled to 140 proof to maintain plenty of the flavors and characteristics of the corn ( rather than distilling to 190 proof to strip any character out the way most vodka producers do) then rested, cut to 80 proof and bottled .

Appearance: Faultlessly clear bright appearance, nice heavy body to it with a good oily edge line on swirling with rapidly forming thin legs, then tears forming.
First Impression: Very promising creamy corn notes with a almost seductive heavy bouquet that promises a lot of corn grin,butter, and a slight creamy sweetness with lovely smooth alcohol notes and no cutting, spiritous notes. Just about every nice smell a good aged spirit can give.

Taste: Somehow grainy and creamy at the same time, think ground corn in a creamy, slightly oily almost batter like mouthfeel with a nice fatty mouthfeel to it.Slightly corn sweet entry with a nicely lingering drying finish.
Drinks: We did a number of cocktails with this whiskey and even came up with some new recipes . It proved itself quite versatile and charming, adding a lot of nice flavors and some serious weight to the body and mouthfeel without overpowering a drink.

Bottle: Heavy clear glass with heavy decanter like bottom.Very reminiscent of an old style clay jug in shape – down to th finger ring handle in the shoulder/neck area of the bottle. What really sets it apart from some other similar bottles is the amassing label art work and the wrecking ball on a chain neck seal. Altogether a distinctive and attractive package that will stand out on a bar shelf (either a home or professional bar )
Cigars : Try it with a Ashton Shade Grown wrapper, Macanudo Cafe′ or similar spicy cigar

Final Thoughts: Definitely one of the best corn whiskies I have tasted. Only reason we didn’t give it a 10 olive rating is I think the proof is a bit modest and could be a touch higher. A 100 proof edition would show off the product a bit better and give it a touch more taste and authority. A barrel strength limited edition would be a real show stopper even at a premium price.”

Chris Carlsson of Spirits Review

“BEE Vodka
First Impression: At first whiff you can immediately tell this is not a grain vodka, and certainly not a potato either. A blind taste test guess would probably be a eau de vie of some sort. Honey and slight floral notes.

Taste: No nasty grain/rubbing alcohol scents to it, good body to it. Very nice smooth taste to it with a hint of honey, citrus, dry not sweet. Slight and very pleasant warming finish to it with a echo of a dry honey at finish.

Appearance: Crystal clear, no sediment whatsoever. On swirling, it leaves a thin clear coat on the inside of the glass with crenellated edge line (meniscus) then quickly dissolves to droplets. Wonderful bright appearance.

Final Thoughts: I was actually quite impressed with it. Altogether very nicely done and deadly smooth. Highly recommend. The only vodka we know of made entirely from honey (not a rectified alcohol and honey vodka mix), making a vodka made from one of the most expensive base materials around (maple syrup in Vermont Gold being a close second). While it is pricey, it is by far one of the best vodkas in the Ultra Premium Category and given the price of raw materials costs a lot more than the others to produce so the price is more justified. If you intend to spend around $50 for a bottle of vodka and want real quality rather than a name and flash-buy this one and enjoy it.”
