CASCADE MOON 11 YEARS OLD TENNESSEE WHISKEY EDITION NO. 1
“Inspired by the history of Cascade Hollow’s original Cascade Pure Whisky that used the tagline ‘mellow as moonlight’” — and blended by distiller Nicole Austin with the flavors of a gose beer in mind.
This is an 11-year-old whisky, with no other production information available. Incredibly soft on the nose, it’s a grassy whisky with notes of eucalyptus, veering toward camphor.
The palate put simply, is gentle as hell, a quiet whisky that evokes notes of sesame seeds and baked bread, almost toasty at times and sweetened with notes of maple syrup.
It finishes like a stack of pancakes with a side of applesauce — bright and gentle with caramel notes and a lingering slick of granary and spice. Light whiskey fans (you guys are out there, right?) will find nothing to complain about here. 84 proof.
