Meet #20   |   25/02/12   |   Hosted by Russell
For our second American night, we thought we'd branch out a bit and try a triple grain challenge - corn, rye and wheat!
Other bottles sampled:
#37 Rittenhouse Rye | SSWC review 20b
#38 Weller Wheated | SSWC review 20c
Smells
A bowl of over-ripe and rotting fruit. What should we do with that? Deep- fry it, were American. USA USA USA! Wash it down with a cream soda. Thank you maam.
Tastes
Im sat in the saloon, saw dust on the floor, chewin tobacco, sipping on a chiili cassis cocktail, garnished with candied peel. I know its the end of my marriage. No more of my womans fruit salads, no more hot buttered toast in the mornings from my sweetheart. Its a corny nightmare!


  We'll turn you into sippin' whiskey, fool!
Finish & Comments
Dammit! That woman sho did make the best marmalade in the whole damn county. Her chalky skin, voice sweet like molasses. I cant go on no more without her! I spent my last nickel on a sherbert fountain and hide my head in that ol gasoline soaked towel one last time
