Art of Alchemy Blend of Straight Whiskies No. 1
We are Art of Alchemy, a small collective of friends working with other friends in the industry to bottle unique spirits for all to enjoy. We are unconventional in ways, blending exceptional distillates that could very well stand on their own. Our aim is to broaden horizons and collaborate with makers who like to push limits.

Tasting Notes: The nose is tangerine with a little bit of oak and toasted black pepper. It's soft on the nose. The palate is where this one starts to shine. There's tons of ripe fruit. Lots of baking spice. It's candied fruit topped with dried chili flakes. The competing flavor profiles work well to elevate the whiskey. The finish brings the palate in for a soft landing. It's lighter with some nice oak and fruit.
