With the official start of summer just days away, today’s episode of A Tasting at The Murder Table features a review of a whiskey that sounds ready made for warm weather. Cascade Blonde is what they call it, and here’s what the makers (Diageo) had to say about in their May 2018 press release:

Cascade Blonde American Whiskey is a new style of blonde American whiskey that’s incredibly smooth, lighter in color and easier to drink than floating downstream.

Cascade Blonde is made using a double chill filtration process, high-corn mash bill and limestone filtered water fresh from Cascade Spring in Tullahoma, Tenn., to give it a smooth-drinking profile. Highlighted by a crisp fruit taste and creamy notes of vanilla, Cascade Blonde complements simple, delicious drinks like the signature Cascade Crush (Cascade Blonde American Whiskey + lemonade + orange wedge) that’s perfect for sipping slowly and safely.

With a suggested retail price of $19.99/750ml and carrying 80 proof (40% ABV), Cascade Blonde’s one-of-a-kind packaging marries the nostalgia of simpler times with a fun, modern take on whiskey. The Fish Out of Water icon embodies the essence of the brand, and the bottle’s cork can be transformed into a fishing bobber with a few quick moves. The shape of the bottle itself is inspired by the buoys of America’s waterways that help keep boat captains safe and on track. Likewise, it’s important to remind all current and future friends to enjoy Cascade Blonde similarly, and always remember to day-sip responsibly.
