The Limited Edition Sometimes Y Creek Water Whiskey has an aroma of spiced pears, cedar, dried cloves, wildflower honey and a hint of ripe red apple on the first puff.

The finish showcases subtle notes of dried leather, aged tobacco leaves, roasted coffee, charred American oak and toasted almonds with a crisp, spicy finish. Distilled and aged for a minimum of 18 years north of Raleigh, NC to allow for slower flavor development and prevent the liquid from being overly oaky. The whiskey is then double barreled and finished in the South in heavily toasted virgin American oak barrels and lightly toasted French oak barrels.

The second finishing process adds hints of almond, dark chocolate and coffee flavors. The extra barrel also adds to the creamy mouthfeel to add a level of premiumization throughout the tasting experience. A Gold Medalist at the New York International Spirits Competition, Creek Water’s limited-edition Sometimes Y whiskey is already attracting whiskey industry fans for its quality liquid.
