Tasting Notes: ASW Distillery Fiddler Georgia Heartwood
Vital Stats: Overall mash bill is unknown, but it’s a high wheat bourbon with 45% wheat and sourced from MGP. Finished with charred white oak GA heartwood staves for several months. Single barrel store pick coming in at 115.6 proof.
Nose: Corn and wheat grains, vanilla, slight char
Palate: Vanilla, graham cracker, marshmallow, hint of dark baking chocolate. You see where I’m going? Yes, s’mores! Some grain youthfulness.
Finish: Sweet and warm with just a slight spice. Thins out at the finish, but provides a little lasting flavor and a decent hug.
Overall: This is a great craft distillery expression of a wheated bourbon. If you are in a distribution area, or visiting Atlanta, I’d suggest giving it a try.
