We final encountered Buffalo’s minimalist Tommyrotter in 2019. It doesn’t seem like a ton has modified within the final three years, aside from the model’s whiskey lineup. The previous American Whiskey is gone, a brand new Bourbon is instead. We’ve received recent tastings on the white spirits and a primary have a look at the bourbon beneath.

Tommyrotter Vodka (2022) – I nonetheless actually like this vodka, created from 100% corn. The nostril is gentle, showcasing mild hospital notes atop an undercurrent of grain. Very light-handed sweetness provides solution to a observe of peanut butter and a lacing of strawberry on the again. Creamy, however with sufficient kick to present the spirit a little bit, wanted punch. 80 proof. A- / $32 [BUY IT NOW FROM DRIZLY]

Tommyrotter Gin (2022) – Pot distilled from corn; botanicals nonetheless not disclosed. Fairly Christmassy on the nostril, with cinnamon and ginger rapid, some citrus beneath. It’s a really festive gin, which makes it much less versatile than I’d like, with vanilla and rhubarb notes rising on the surprisingly candy palate. Powerful to shake that cinnamon and nutmeg character because the end builds. As I stated in 2019, this feels nearer to rum than gin at occasions. 84 proof. B / $35 [BUY IT NOW FROM CASKERS]

Tommyrotter Napa Valley Heritance Cask Bourbon – I first thought “Heritance” was a merciless typo, however then discovered it’s as a result of the whiskey is completed in Taub Household Choices’ Heritance Cabernet Sauvignon French oak barrels from Rutherford, Napa Valley, California for 3 months. Earlier than that, it’s blended from three MGP bourbons, together with a excessive corn bourbon, a excessive wheat bourbon, and a excessive rye bourbon — which is near what the previous American Whiskey launch was manufactured from, however not fairly. Even the end is probably going the identical, although that is bottled at a barely larger proof. Corn-forward however layered with spice, this once more exhibits itself as youthful however expressive and approachable, notes of vanilla working properly with the granary notes to create a delicate peanut brittle character. Some fruit on the palate maybe evokes the cabernet cask, with cinnamon, creme brulee, and milk chocolate all within the combine. Barrel char builds over time, within the glass and on the palate. The end is lighter than the 47.5% abv would counsel, frivolously nutty and woody and candy, suddenly. 95 proof. B / $70 [BUY IT NOW FROM DRIZLY]
