Get to know: Redwood Empire, Pipe Dream Bourbon Whiskey
Redwood, named after the giant centuries old sequoia trees on the Northern coast of California. This Bourbon is a recent find and a delight. Unlike whisky from this side of the Atlantic, Bourbon is made from a majority of corn with some barley and sometimes other grains. With Bourbon, expect sweet notes like maple syrup and sometimes honey cured bacon with those dried fruits and nuts. The Pipe Dream is soft and easy yet surprisingly complex. An excellent place to start with American whisky.
