Proof66 Notes

Cedar Ridge Iowa Bourbon is their first whiskey release. It is made in very small batches of 80 gallons in European still. They note that the bourbon is made up of 75% corn in the grain bill... a somewhat higher ratio of corn grain than we're used to seeing, suggesting a slightly sweeter, popcorn style of whiskey. It is bottled at mild 80 proof.

The 2012 Beverage Testing Institute review called it a "crowd pleaser" and suggested it as a "dessert bourbon." They followed it up in 2013 calling it "well-rounded" and "easy drinking." 

Cedar Ridge Winery and Distillery lays claim to the first legal distillery operating in Iowa. They craft spirits using products primarily from their own vineyard and distill from scratch in traditional Bavarian copper pot stills.

A great bourbon, especially for being so young, smooth and full of flavor, but unfortunately for the cost there is a lot of competition that is better.
