Whiskey Blend – Zac Brown Distillery

Tonight something special for me, on the rocks.

From Zac Brown Distillery in Dahlonega, Georgia, yeah that Zac Brown, a blend of bourbon, light whiskey, wheat whiskey, and brandy from Z Alexander Brown Uncaged Pinot Noir.

Pleasant aromas of butterscotch, caramel, and oak. Drinks lighter than a bourbon, more complex than a light whiskey, and at 82 proof finishes smooth and mellow.

Dry Rosè – Biltmore Estate

Our wine tonight is the Limited Release Dry Rosè from Biltmore Estate.

This Dry Rosè wine of American grown grape was in our recent wine club shipment. A delicate fruit nose with layers of berry flavors which linger on the finish.

We thoroughly enjoy being Biltmore Estate wine club members and annual pass holders. We often drop in Sunday evening for a bottle of wine and dinner at the Bistro.
