Finally getting back to my Maine samples from @bourbonmaine. Tonight: Wiggly Bridge Bourbon, coming in at 86 proof. I looked up the following details after tasting: grain to glass, founded in 2013, no mash bill given for the bourbon, and the name Wiggly Bridge comes from a local landmark that claims to be the smallest pedestrian bridge in America. (The "original" bridge was built in the 30's.) Their white dog says the mash bill is corn, rye, and malt, so that's all I got on mash bill. -- Color is a light amber. No yellow like a Scotch or many ryes, but a lot of orange hues. It's nice. Crisp and clear. Nose... ooooh, smells delicious. I had let it breathe a little before taking a whiff and there was zero alcohol on the nose. Sweet. Caramel. Butterscotch. Maybe some other candied something... like a dessert wafer of some sort. Smells delicious. -- Palette: oh yes, tastes like the nose. Rich butterscotch. More caramel. I'd guess a heavy corn mash bill - not really getting any noticeable rye or malt influence. Maybe some wheat... but definitely coooooorrrrrn. Not super deep or complex and as easy drinking as you'd expect at 86 proof, I'm still enjoying it thoroughly. There's a buttery quality to it I really dig. This is extremely easy to like, even at 86 proof. And it doesn't taste like it'd be too hot or young tasting at a higher proof... I'm awfully curious what it'd taste like at 90-100 proof. Finish is pleasant and lingers for a while. Yum. -- Yup, this falls squarely in the yummy category. Goofy name aside, I'd happily pick up a 750 of this if it ever makes its way to Texas. Well done, guys, and thanks again, Rick! -- #whiskey #bourbon #craftbourbon #craftwhiskey #MaineBourbon #MaineWhiskey #neat #whiskeytrade #bourbontrade #sampletrade #whiskeysamples #bourbonsamples #WigglyBridge #WigglyBridgeBourbon #WigglyBridgeDistillery #fall #autumn #acorns #BurrOakAcorns #pumpkins
Maine whiskey sample #2, courtesy of @bourbonmaine: Tidewalker bourbon, 88 proof. I drammed knowing only that, then looked it up after... and found almost nothing! I got that it's actually a STRAIGHT bourbon and it's from New England Distilling. That's all I know for now, so I'd love more details (like mash bill and if it's sourced). -- Color is a nice light amber. It's a bit hazy, making me wonder if it's non-chill filtered / minimally filtered. -- Nose is... interesting! I get a lot of barley - lot of malt. Very earthy. Smells good, but not at all what I'd expect from a bourbon. Intriguing... -- Palette... is like the nose for sure. I swear this bourbon must be 51% corn and 49% malted barley, yet I feel sure that's wrong. A little spiciness comes though - maybe some rye. No obvious wheat. This is a good, full-bodied whiskey with some depth, complexity, and just a little heat. At 88 proof, I'd guess that it would be too hot (young tasting) at a higher proof. Finish is nice but not too deep. Subtle heat. Super interesting and I found myself wanting more after my 2-oz sample. -- I enjoyed this for sure and it made me want more to fully digest it, but the Old Port I tried first is more my usual style. If I'd tasted this 100% blind, i.e. no "bourbon" on the label, I'd never have guessed it's a bourbon. Pretty interesting dram! -- #whiskey #bourbon #MaineBourbon #MaineWhiskey #craftbourbon #craftwhiskey #neat #whiskeytrade #bourbontrade #localbourbon #localwhiskey
First Maine whiskey sample: Old Port Bourbon, 90 proof, by Liquid Riot Bottling Co. Per the website, "...crafted using Maine grown corn, rye and buckwheat. Distilled in the heart of Portland’s Old Port..." I looked it up after enjoying my dram so as to not taint my first impressions - but props to them for going grain to glass! Respect! -- Color is a nice light amber. Pretty. Nose... mmmmm... sweet... corn corn corn... syrupy. Candied yum. Toasted candies. I wouldn't have been surprised if it was a 100% corn whiskey / bourbon. No noticeable alcohol on the nose. -- Taste... also yum! More corn, but tamer. Not overly sweet, but delicious. Not much wood or char. For a presumably young bourbon, they did a fine job with this, especially for aging in Maine (i.e. colder climate). I get more than corn now... but hard to say what. (I suck at that sometimes.) Finish is nice, and a little heat does kick in toward the end. Not hot, though. A solid craft. Thanks again, @bourbonmaine! Solid 1st sample. -- #whiskey #bourbon #craftbourbon #craftwhiskey #MaineBourbon #MaineWhiskey #localbourbon #localwhiskey #neat #OldPortBourbon #LiquidRiot #liquidriotbottlingcompany #liquidriotbottlingco #whiskeysamples #bourbonsamples #whiskeytrade #bourbontrade
Super stoked about my first sample trade! Huge thanks to @bourbonmaine for these 6 samples, 4 of which are Maine locals and he threw in 2 sweets bonuses - Rock Hill Farms (which I've never had!) and OF Statesman (which I only sampled once at the bar). I sent him (and @mainebourbongirl) some local Texas goodies. I just warmed up my palette with some light n easy corn whiskey and next I'm going to try one of these bad boys! Thanks again @bourbonmaine! -- Also, purple sage is blooming... rain's a comin... -- #whiskey #bourbon #craftwhiskey #craftbourbon #MaineWhiskey #MaineBourbon #localwhiskey #localbourbon #whiskeytrade #bourbontrade #whiskeysamples #bourbonsamples

Please forgive me IG, My first pic didn't do @splitrockdistilling justice. Let me try again. ahem. I'm not a big white whiskey drinker, but this one has made its way onto my shelf! Split Rock is Maine's first organic distillery. They are extremely passionate about their community and producing quality small batch grain to glass spirits. Their white whiskey has a strong, spirited nose of sweet corn and grain. It brightens up the taste buds with a burst of corn, rye, and wheat. Thin mouthfeel with a good finish. The burn lingers enough to shake off the Monday cobwebs. What's your favorite white whiskey? Be sure to check out @bourbonmaine 's review of SRD's white whiskey! #mainespiritsmonday #craftdistillery #smallbatch
All in good time. @davesbeeradventures nabbed the perfect synopsis in one shot of our winter filling big oak Bourbon barrels with organic whiskey! And now we patiently wait for the day when we crack these casks open and reminisce with you about the journey. In the meantime, swing in for a swig of our small barrel organic Bourbon, free tastings available daily at the distillery! #splitrock #splitrockdistilling #bourbon #whiskeybarrel #bourbonbarrelaged #organicwhiskey #imbibegram #whiskey #patienceisavirtue #allingoodtime #bung #craftdistilling #distillery #mainemade #mainewhiskey #organicspirits #waiting #instawaiting #photographerlife #perspective #winterinmaine
