FEW White Dog

FEW White Dog

Official bottling
Single bourbon - Illinois
40% ABV

Nose: Corn, sour cream, magic marker, soor plooms, hints of lemons.
Mouthfeel: Light body, airy, fizzy, astringent.
Tasting: Bitter sour. Lemons, corn, sour cream, malted grains, magic marker.
Finish: Short. Lemons, malted grains, corn, burnt plastic.


This is unaged whisky, what Americans call 'white dog'. It's basically spirit straight off the still, watered and bottled. Maybe they shouldn't have watered this. It's not quite strong enough to be complex and interesting, and not quite weak enough to have shrugged off that scent of burnt plastic. Nevertheless, it's tart and slightly milky, and there's a lot of corn and barley in it. Interesting experiment, but I feel whisky really needs to be aged.

Thanks to Kevin at the BE for a splash in a glass.


I like this.
