So over the past year, I’ve been really getting into the whisky/bourbon thing (not to be confused with the awesome bourbon thing podcast and blog). When I was at the Gentlemen’s Expo (yes, I sampled quite a bit that day, all in the name of the blog of course), I got to try Stalk & Barrel Whisky. This whiskey is distilled locally (which I love of course). I was afraid it was going to be really strong, which don’t get me wrong, it was but it didn’t have that burn that some whiskeys do.
Stalk & Barrel also makes a rye whisky, which is quite strong at 46% and a strong single malt which they sampled at the show but their website offers a huge selection of locally made spirits. I’d definitely recommend Stalk & Barrel if you’re looking to try a new whisky or rye, and of course, want to shop local.
