Grandaddy Mimms, 50%

Price: $25 Issue: Summer 2013 Reviewer: Lew Bryson

Dry, dusty corn with some fruit flashing around, and an odd aroma of cracked limestone. Simple corn spirit, lightly sweet and clean, not hot (especially for 50%), and a smooth finish. As the company notes, this is a spirit for mixing, but it's a surprisingly easy sipper, if not overly rewarding.
