Proof66 Notes

Taos Lightning, according to Mountain Men and Life in the Rocky Mountain West, appears to be a reference to a form of wheat whiskey popular in the mid-1800s (and, apparently, un-aged). In contrast, this expression of Taos Lightning Rye whiskey is, we suppose, blended with a measure of wheat and aged to add complexity to the flavor.

KGB Spirits was founded by John Bernasconi, Karen Lubliner, and George schurman and resides in the Rancho de Los Luceros Destilaria in Alcalde, New Mexico.
