Wigle Whim Hint of Hop, 46%

Price: $34 Issue: Spring 2015 Reviewer: Lew Bryson

Like the Whim Mocha Porter, this is certified organic; a wheat whiskey made with locally-grown hops. Hard to tease out hops vs. small barrel oak spice in the nose; it's bold and shouty. Wow. The hops are explosive in the mouth, flashing bitter on the tongue. The first sip was shocking, now it's settling in, and becoming smoother, but I just don't think this much hops is a good idea in a whiskey. Price is per 375 ml.
