Who makes it? Iron Smoke Distilley
Mashbill: 53% corn, apple wood smoked wheat, barley and just a slap tickle of rye!
Where it’s from: Fairport, NY
When it Started: 2013
We were invited to come down and hang with Monte DeLeon at the Jefe Boutique Cigar, Whiskey and Wine event in Eola Park, Orlando.
Started to rain while we were setting up then a special guest arrived! Tiffany from Iron Smoke Whiskey dropped in, had some bottles so we decided to shoot a flash review on the spot!
The first bottle was one of our favorites the flagship Iron Smoke Bourbon. Always a great pour plus it doesn’t hurt that it’s the highest rated bourbon in Jim Murray’s Whiskey Bible coming in at 95.5 out of 100. One of the things we like about this is how they smoke their wheat with apple wood for a subtle flavor that really comes through.
Next up was Rattlesnake Rosie’s Apple Pie Bourbon, WOW does that hit all the right notes with apple, cinnamon, nutmeg and you can almost taste the crust! All natural ingredients, that’s why they call these elixirs and not liqueurs.
Last was something special that Tiffany brought just for us. A new addition to the Rattlesnake Rosie line up, the Chocolate Peanutbutter Pie Bourbon. So dangerous because you don’t taste the alcohol! This would be great in a chocolate martini!
In the end it was a great event, loved hanging out with Monte DeLeon Cigars and huge thanks to Tiffany for stopping by, hanging out and shooting the flash review with us. Love her energy! Can’t wait for the next event!
