An intensely grainy bouquet. The palate entry is corny sweet and nearly honey-like; at midpalate the core flavor of sweet corn mash remains while tastes of buttered popcorn, brown sugar, and nougat expand. Finishes with a spurt of fire and lots of long, corny/grainy tastes. Should be part of every serious whiskey-lover's collection.
For hundreds of years, farmers took their excess produce and turned it into liquid gold to help supplement their income. It was a time-honored tradition and the Conecuh Ridge is an area that was renowned for its illegal whiskey-making. At one point, Federal agencies said it had the heaviest concentration of stills in the US.Working in small batches and with careful attention to detail, Clyde produced a warm, amber whiskey containing a hint of apples. In the deep South, there remain folk who still keep unmarked bottles of Mr. Clyde’s Special Reserve tucked away as carefully as family Bibles and precious photographs.Today, we take pride in keeping true to Mr. Clyde’s values—both in life and whiskey-making. Our new American whiskey embodies his spirit. We use a mash bill that consists of corn, rye, malted barley and then age in charred oak barrels producing a natural caramel flavor in the aging process. Clyde May’s Whiskey is meant to be sipped and savored. Allow the warmth and aroma of our amber spirit to transport you down the red-clay roads of Alabama to a simpler time.(producer's website)
