Finger Lakes Glen Thunder Corn Whiskey, 45%

Price: $22 Issue: Fall 2011 Reviewer: Lew Bryson

Crisps the nose hairs a bit, but it's pure corn, even a bit of cornbread. Tip a sip in, and it's nothing but more green corn, sweet, fresh — hot, for sure, but not overwhelming — and pretty tasty for what it is. With white whiskey, we're walking the fine line between flavor and raw wound at all times, and this one finds the line.
