Medusa, American Whiskey
80 proof 40% alcohol
Whidbey Island, Washington
Just North West of Seattle, one can take a ferry to Whidbey Island that has a variety of very special things. One, that I am most fond of is a whiskey distillery by the name of Cadee. I had the honor of being one of ten people to taste Medusa before it was offered to the public and now I can share my notes with you.
Nose: Sweet on the nose with an array of spices and the smell of the sea.
Taste: Medusa has a tantalizing palate that will bring you through a ribbon on flavors that will keep you wanting more. My tasting started with oak from the barrel on the tip of the tongue. Then she presented a warm mixture of island spices (mild cinnamon, all spice, nutmeg) and the taste of the sea. Her finish is smooth and sweet with caramel/toffee flavor that glides past the back of the mouth. It is a wonder how a whiskey can be that complex and refined all at once. I highly recommended that you check out this delicious whiskey and enjoy the enticing flavors presented by Cadee.
