The whiskey has a wonderful caramel and candy corn aroma from the addition of sweeter malt grain blended with the dessert notes of the aged light whiskey.
John really wanted to highlight our favorite characteristic of the original Redneck Riviera Whiskey which was its smoothness and ‘sipability’.
We went to work sourcing the vintage varieties of whiskey used for that product and designed a blend that exemplified Granny: mature and good natured with a surprising kick!
It’s all nicely rounded with the higher 43% abv, or 86 proof.
We can’t tell you why 86, because proof is just a number :wink: — Mel Heim
