Ultimate Beverage Challenge 90 points - Bright fragrances of peach nectar, smoked meat, hickory and teaberry leaves. In the mouth a gentle smokiness gives way to alluring brown sugar and ripe peach flavors. The finish lingers on the palate offering woodsy characteristics. (Apr 2014)
Hickory Smoked Whiskey is distilled from Arkansas Soft Red Winter Wheat – aged in ex-Bourbon casks – with a nice light smokey taste from real Hickory.
We took American whiskey distilling techniques and melded it with Scotch whiskey aging techniques to make something pretty special, Arkansas Hickory Smoked Whiskey.
We cold smoke the wheat here at the distillery, prior to milling in our own hickory smokers. This infuses smoke into the grain and the flavor of the hickory carries all the way through to the distillate.
As with all our whiskies, Hickory Smoked Whiskey is made from grain to glass here at the distillery in Little Rock. We’re makers not fakers.
