Misunderstood Ginger Spiced Whiskey Tasting

Elma Wine & Liquor

2020-02-28

 

Come taste the delicious Misunderstood Ginger Spiced Whiskey and save on any bottles you purchase during the event!

Distiller's Notes: 

"This is an 80 proof American blended whiskey distilled from midwest grains, aged in used American oak barrels, and proudly infused & bottled in Kentucky. Our Ginger Spiced Whiskey is enjoyed by whiskey connoisseurs, whiskey rookies, and even those who suffer from what we call “whiskey-phobia” (you know who you are). With tasting notes of vanilla, caramel, toffee, spice, and a refreshing ginger finish, Legend One can be enjoyed straight, on the rocks, or in your favorite cocktail. Don't be shy."
