Taos Lightning 17 Year Old Straight Rye Whiskey (K&L exclusive cask #15) [Mystery]

Taos Lightning 17 Year Old Straight Rye Whiskey 1

Thanks to /u/Kilrathi for sending through a mystery sample with the bevy of whiskey he sent.

To start off, for those of you who are new: Hi, I’m horrible at mystery reviews. I can’t guess worth a damn, and I’m pretty sure each time I post one of them, I lose what little ‘respect’ I currently have on reddit.

And yet I still like them.

Hype can make us over value a whisky. It happened for me for Springbank 10, Buffalo Trace, and Balvenie Caribbean Cask 14. Granted I didn’t give them TOO high of scores (except the Caribbean Cask), however my general view of them as “amazing no matter what” made them a lot higher score than they deserved.

And now that I’ve alienated a bunch of people, let’s try to guess this American Whiskey, shall we?
