Proof66 Notes

Troy & Sons Blonde Whiskey is a blend of corn and wheat grains, which in our mind is a kind of "wheated bourbon" sort of recipe. The grain comes from the Peaceful Valley Farm of North Carolina. The aging is done in oak barrels with "honeycomb laced staves," which suggests a kind of "chipping or immersion in the barrel.

Very good whiskey! After trying and liking Troy & Sons Oak Reserve, I decided to pick up a bottle of their newest whiskey, Blonde. While their other products have a heavy apothecary old west style bottle, this product's packaging gets a more contemporary treatment. Ironically, this whiskey is darker in color than their Oak Reserve (which I called blonde in my review). This is more of a strawberry blonde. The nose has a great sweetness. Vanilla, caramel and toffee with much less of the alcohol notes of the Reserve. It enters the palate with a wonderful sweetness. A thicker mouthfeel than the Reserve. Unlike the Reserve, the sweetness stays through the middle and finish. I guess that's the extra time in the barrel (former Woodford Reserve Barrels, I've been told) and the wheat. Just a hint of smoke and leather. A smooth finish with a pleasant warming sensation on the way down. No burn. It's obvious from their website that they are marketing this as a woman's whiskey. Hence their tag line, "A Kinder Spirit". I don't know about all that, but I do know good whiskey when I taste it. With Troy & Sons' Blonde, Platinum, and Oak Reserve, Blue Ridge Distilling's Defiant Single Malt, Southern Artisan Spirit's Cardinal Gin, and Covington's sweet potato Vodka, I could stock the entire top shelf of my bar and never let a dollar leave the state of North Carolina. This is definitely worth the few extra dollars over the Oak Reserve. If you can find it where you live, try it.
