This is a re-post of a spirits feature from THL.
THL: What is it?
Death’s Door White Whiskey is a double distilled mash of Washington Island Wheat and organic malted barley from Chilton, Wisconsin. The 160 proof spirit rests in stainless steel and finishes in uncharred Minnesota oak barrels.
THL: Why should you try it?
John Jeffery, the master distiller at Death's Door, is one of the nation's most respected authorities when it comes to the way that whiskey interacts with wood. Suffice to say, his whiskey is pretty damn good.
THL: Who makes it?

Vanilla, chocolate covered cherries, malt
THL: How should you drink it?
