Fruity & Herbal
Koval Distillery, established in 2008, is located in the North End of Chicago. They are a 100% grain-to-bottle operation that sources their grains from an organic co-op in the Midwest. Their bourbon mash-bill consists of two grains: corn and millet.
Out of the bottle, this duet opens with notes of mango chutney, while the millet renders a soft whisper of vanilla throughout. Then harmonizing, the grains sing with the sweetness of apricot custard.
This pair finishes with peppery caramel, a diminuendo into a wisp of clove-spiked tobacco lingering on the tongue.
