Overall: Recently we were out exploring some of the local breweries and discovered Silverback Distillery. We stopped in and sample some Gin, Vodka, and Whiskey. We purchased a bottle of Blackback White Grain Whiskey and decided to write a full review. This is the same whiskey that the nice folks at Silverback are aging for their bourbon. This is a straightforward and simple grain whiskey that has a genuine sweet corn flavor. Sweet corn is the prominent flavor with citrus fruits and cherries throughout. The finish is short with plenty of corn flavor and very smooth. This is a good grain whiskey. The flavors are simple, not complex by any means. I tried it neat and in a cocktail and I enjoyed it best in a cocktail. I experimented quite a bit with a few recipes and I enjoyed it in all of them. I am very interested in tasting this whiskey when it is aged a bit. I think it is going to make a good bourbon. If you’re in the area, stop in and check out Silverback Distillery, they are on the right track and crafting some good products.
