Glina Rye Whisky Distillery Edition 2019January 18, 2021
GlenAllachie 12 year old single malt reviewMarch 30, 2021
Bottled by Georgetown Trading Company, Pow-Wow Botanical is an 2 year old sourced straight rye whiskey. It’s been infused using mostly saffron and orange peel (other botanicals are not disclosed). So you can call this one a flavored whiskey.
The name of this rye whiskey comes from the Algonquin term for “gathering”. Pow-wow was described as a practice to make herbal recipes using what they could gather around them. This is what the bottler has to say about it:
“Inspired by an old Pow-wow recipe for infusing Rye whiskey with herbs & spices, we have taken a fine Rye whiskey matured in new, charred oak barrels, and carefully infused it in tiny batches, over an extended period of time, with Saffron (also grown by early settlers), Orange Peel, and other whole botanicals. No extracts or artificial colors are added.”
There’s no information available about the mash bill or where the whiskey has been sourced from. Could be MGP, although it’s hard to detect any distillery because of botanical influence on the palate. Apparently the whiskey has been warehoused in Kentucky.
