New Southern Revival Sorghum Whiskey, 44%

Price: $49 Issue: Summer 2016 Reviewer: Lew Bryson

Is it whiskey? Sorghum's a grain, but sorghum syrup is pressed from the stalk of the plant. But HighWire Distilling uses Muddy Pond sorghum syrup, which mashes the grain in with the stalk. So…we'll say yes, whiskey. Spritely on the tongue: lively and quick, sweet but spicy with oak, and not an off note. Crying for a cube and a shot of seltzer. Whiskey? Probably. Good? Yes!
