The Smuggler's Notch Straight Bourbon Whiskey is incredible. The spirit is a mix of at least 51% corn, balanced with rye, and malted barley.

Smuggler's Notch uses barrels from several different manufactures to provide complexity and layers of flavor to their whiskies, aging them in their northern Vermont facility. They do lots of blending trials and blend with pure Vermont spring water. At 90 proof, this bourbon has a nose of sweet,boiled corn and rye with all it's nutty and spicy flavors. Caramel, toffee, breadpudding come across with white hard sauce, and spice. An incredible dram. Exceptional.
Smuggler's Notch is incredible distilling!!!!!!
