Mosby's Spirit Review on American Craft Spirits

Mosby's SpiritFrom American Craft Spirits:

Score: 95

Hands down the best white dog/white whiskey/moonshine I have ever tasted, and considering I taste more of these than most people will ever get a chance to…damn. The fruity nose is near majestic, like a local orchard shop, its clean concrete floors and white walls wafting with the scent of apples, pears, and peaches, all in full ripeness just beneath their skins — amazing – and like those shops, it fills a long noisy room with the anticipation of its flavors. But then the palate makes its own statement: again, more fruit and this time, candy in concentrate, like a carefully crafted eau-de-vie, but with a bready, yeasty, rounder body for balance. This isn’t spicy like the big bruising ryes we’re accustomed to, but rather its flavors focus on the body of the spirit itself, the pure essence of the rye which comes when the alcohol is rendered out by a true craftsman. The finish reminds you again that this is grain, which helps to balance out some of the earlier, more fruity moments and makes this more than a just a one trick pony. If you are a fan of craft spirits, you’ve got to seek this out. This is a cult product from some producers who aren’t huge on the scene right now, but deserve to be. Scott and Becky Harris are working magic in their little shop in Purcellville, Virginia. Find their bottles, buy two, drink one, and own what’s sure to become a legend.
