Beyond the obvious flavor of malt, you'll find some nice spicy notes, a dry body, and a long finish.
House of spirits is one of Oregon’s premier craft distilleries and makers of Aviation gin, Krogstad Aquavit, and Medoyeff vodka are releasing three whiskey expressions simultaneously at the distillery on December 12th. House Spirits Straight Malt whiskey (approx $46, 1500 bottles released), House Spirits Cask Strength whiskey (approx $34, 150 bottles released) and House Spirits White Dog whiskey (approx $20.50, 150 bottles released) will all be available for tasting and purchase at the distillery and later at liquor stores throughout the state of Oregon. Each whiskey is made from 100% malted barley and Oregon’s famous Bull Run water. Distiller Lee Medoff told me that he intitially made a beer with a quick 2 day fermentation to create esters that would carry over into the whiskies to improve their flavor. The beer came out at 6% abv, was distilled once to remove the heads, and then distilled a second time for the heart cut and then, in the case of the Cask Strength and Straight Malt put in new 53 gallon American oak barrels with a 2+ toast level to age. The White Dog is an unaged, unoaked new make whiskey
