Situated along the banks of the East River, Kings County Distillery is New York City's oldest operating whiskey distillery and the first distillery in New York City since Prohibition. Wedged between Williamsburg and Vinegar Hill, Colin Spoelman and David Haskell, the master distillers at Kings County, make hand-crafted bourbon, moonshine, and now single malt whiskey out of the 117-year old Paymaster Building at the Brooklyn Navy Yard.
n: cocktail with vermouth and a cherry. Heavy on toffee, ethanol, and char. Young and astringent smell with vanilla bean.
t: overtly menthol and green apple sauce. It's loud and intense with a lot of oak bite without the roundness a barrel should impart over time. Straw and anise in short finish, needs more time in normal sized barrel, underwhelming for the price point.
