Mellow Corn Bottled in Bond, 50%

Price: $13 Issue: Summer 2016 Reviewer: Fred Minnick

Used cooperage and higher corn content make corn whiskey its own category, and Mellow Corn is its leader. As expected, corn dominates throughout as salty chip, tortilla, and my favorite, a thick corn pudding. Burnt brown sugar, vanilla, and black pepper spice tingle the senses, too. This is a sipper if you really like corn, but you can't drink this and think bourbon.
