Proof66 Notes

Headlong White Dog Whiskey is an un-aged whiskey or (as some would have it) "moonshine." It is crafted after a bourbon recipe of organic corn, wheat, and barley (as a bourbon recipe, it will be at least 50% corn). Because it is not aged, it presents clear. It is not chill-filtered so the consumer may notice a slight haze in the whiskey and viscous mouthfeel, prized by many purists.

Perhaps noticing the organic qualities of the whiskey, the 2011 Beverage Testing Institute noted Headlong had "Great purity and balance."

Woodinville spirits are made in Washington State with what they regard as "pristine water" and the "finest wooden barrels." Their grains are certified organic. It was founded in 2010 by Brett Carlile and Orlin Sorensen. According to the write-up at Artisan Spirit Magazine (Allison Armfield), Brett and Orlin are friends and alumni of Central Washington University who both mentored with Dave Pickerell formerly of Maker's Mark Distillery in Kentucky. They source all of their grain except barley from Quincy, Washington.

If youve ever wondered what whiskey tastes like pre barrel, you should try it. While Im not a huge white dog fan, this spirit is a great example of the style. Bottled at a proof that is drinkable, this spirit can be used in place of Vodka for some more flavorful cocktails. The distillers are friendly and very knowledgeable as well.
