La1 Whiskey

Name: LA 1 Whiskey

By: Donner-Peltier Distillers

ABV: 46%

Proof: 92

Age: About 10 months

Notes: On the nose LA 1 has a straight forward aroma of sweet corn. On the palate there is a great deal of rich and earthy flavors such as oak, corn, vanilla, cocoa, and dark roasted coffee. The flavors are full bodied and easily noticeable. This whiskey has some chocolate malted barley which adds a cocoa flavor to the whiskey. The finish is moderate with corn, cocoa, and vanilla flavors and has nice burn to it. The coffee and cocoa flavors are very noticeable and when I first tried this whiskey I wasn’t impressed, but I let the bottle open up a bit and tried this again and I really enjoyed it. I think the reason I didn’t enjoy it at first is because it was a flavor I wasn’t use to, but this is a good whiskey with a very unique flavor. I enjoyed LA 1 neat and with a splash and it was enjoyable both ways. I would definitely recommend LA 1 whiskey; it is full of great flavors and is definitely a stand out whiskey. For around $40.00 a bottle, it is definitely worth picking up if you haven’t tried it yet.
