Black Fly Bourbon Whiskey
84.4 Proof, 42.2% ABV
Black flies are synonymous with the Adirondacks, as anyone spending time there can tell you. They’re active in the mountains and seek out adventurers making their way through the High Peaks. The distillers grudgingly co-exist with these small but fierce locals (and find that their Black Fly Bourbon Whiskey is just the thing to take the edge off their bite.) Gristmill Distillers’ Black Fly Bourbon Whiskey is a 100% New York corn whiskey, aged in new American oak barrels crafted by U.S. Barrel. Hints of oak and sap mingle with a touch of corn, just enough to remind you that it’s a bourbon whiskey from the Adirondack farmland. It has a little spice, a clean finish, and a hint of lingering oak.
