Sierra Norte Mexican White Corn Single Barrel Whiskey
Sierra Norte Mexican White Corn Single Barrel Whiskey is made of 85% Heritage Corn and 15% Malted Barley. It is aged about ten months in French Oak. The nose has a slightly sweet and fruity aroma. It consists of vanilla and almond with subtle black squid ink. The palate has tones of green apple and the finish is smooth with cinnamon spice.
White has the most familiar corn whiskey character of this Mexican trio. Sweet buttered cobs of corn, faint toasted spices, green corn husks, and peanuts on the nose. The palate is sweet, gentle, and refreshing, bathed in honey, with dried peel, sweet corn, toasted oak spices, and a late sensation of charred oak, burnt toast, and peppercorn. That slight burnt note just creeps into the finish.
