Proof66 Notes

Cut Spike Single Malt whiskey is made from Nebraska barley and aged for a brief 2 years in oak prior to bottling. To us, this signals a grain-forward flavor with hints of wood-driven flavors of caramel and vanilla. One helpful user noted that Batch 1 and Batch 2 had different corks but otherwise appear identical, though as a craft distillery one wouldn't be surprised to see a little variation year-to-year in the whiskey.

According to the Omaha City Weekly, Solas Distillery—later to become the Cut Spike Distillery in order to pay homage to frontier railroad traditions—was founded in 2009 by Zac Triemert (distiller) and Jason Payne (president and founder), who have experience as brewers behind the Lucky Bucket Brewing Company. The distillery was able to open from the personal lobbying efforts Nebraska Legislative Bill 549, which allowed for licensing for small craft distilling within the state. Today, they claim to be the first to produce and package liquor (legally) within Nebraska since Prohibition. Zac Triemert claims the distinction of one of a "small handful of distillers" with a masters degree in distilling from Scotland at the Heriot-Watt University.
