Tasting Notes

Woodinville is a Washington State Whiskey Company established in 2010. They heard the message loud and clear about what people wanted in craft whiskey: no short cuts. They do everything grain to glass. They work with a farmer in eastern Washington for all of their rye and corn. They age everything in full-sized, 53-gallon barrels. And most importantly...they waited. Patiently biding their time, they opted to only release whiskey in Washington State so they slowly build their stocks and bring a truly quality product to market in the 5-6 year old range. Right when bourbon and rye start to show the remarkably complexity and flavor that makes them so popular. A truly handcrafted spirit, this high rye bourbon (72% corn, 22% rye, 6 % barley) has aromas of creme brulee and a plethora of spices. Rich caramel nougat, cocoa and sweet vanilla all play together on the palate to lead into a sweet and lingering finish.

    A welcome addition to the world of spirits. A great price for a high quality Bourbon. It is soft and round with a kiss of spice and a wonderful, juicy, long finish. The flavors are balanced out, working well together.

    The Woodinville label proudly states "real craft whisky" and I would encourage you to buy a bottle and taste the bourbon inside it; you will likely agree that it is indeed real, and craft, and delicious! I'm not sure whether it is the fact that they grow their own grain, include an important portion of rye in the mash bill, or simply that they just know what they're doing with distillation and ageing, but this has to be one of the most exciting new Bourbons I have tried in a while. The nose suggests vanilla pastry cream and roasted peanut shells, leading to a Bourbon that is sufficiently sweet, but also well framed by spicy barrel notes. Highly recommended.

    The coolest thing about this distillery is that they are truly grain to glass. They grow all their own grains, do everything by hand and are meticulous in their craft which really shows in this whiskey. Full of flavor, Woodinville’s Straight Bourbon shows creme brulee, caramel, vanilla, spice and a nice sweet finish. Don’t miss out on this distillery's debut to California.

    From the first smell in the glass you know this Bourbon is going to be something special. The rich, caramel, spice nose gives off pure, sweet aromas and the surrounding area is filled with lush notes of unadulterated whiskey. Though this one is on the plusher side, it results from softening and developing in barrel rather than through additions or intervention of any kind. This is Bourbon as it should be made, through patience and care, not through manipulation. It's exciting to see people recognize this style as worth investing in. I'm glad this made it's way to California and hope to see it on the shelves for years to come.

    I love high rye whiskey. It represents the perfect balance for me. Wonderfully sweet corn provides the bulk of this bourbon, as is required, but the high rye and 90 proof bottling dials up the spicy content. It elevates the cocoa and mocha notes and blends them into the caramel and vanilla of the barrel. This 5+ year old bourbon is finally available outside of Washington State for the first time. Fortunately, despite its exclusive nature, it's still super reasonably priced. And excellent bourbon at great prices means it's perfect for cocktails...in fact, I have another Old Fashioned to make...
