Clyde May's - Alabama Style Whiskey - 110 proof
A select reserve of our special stock aged 6 to 7 years in 53 gallon char #4 barrels and finished during bottling with a natural essence of apple.
"Clyde knew a thing or two about crafting the finest spirits around, even if his methods were slightly outside the laws of the land. His high standards and commitment to quality cemented his reputation as the "most-wanted" moonshiner in Alabama, if not the country."
“It's got a warm finish and it really lasts, in a good way“
Busted out some Clyde May’s Alabama Style Whiskey that had been patiently waiting a review for quite some time! This particular bottle is the 110 proof variety… It’s either old labeling of the “special reserve” or its not… we’re not quite sure. What we do know is that it is VERY tasty! We both got crushed by a very pleasant apple aroma and taste up front, followed by a nice warm, spicy finish on the back end. Which is, apparently, “Alabama style”. Who knew? We didn’t, but we do now, and were glad we do. Per the usual, we look at five different categories in our own terms: Bottle, Appearance, Smell, Value, and Taste.
