Death’s Door White Whiskey Review

By Josh Peters @TheWhiskeyJug

A wheat whiskey, the Death’s Door White Whiskey is a double distilled whiskey with an 80/20 mash that has only ever touched uncharred oak (which essentially does… nothing) and is another entry into the unfathomably still blooming “moonshine” market. I don’t understand why people spend their money in this category but to each their own.

The only reason I bought this was to use as a base spirit to held strip some of the oak out of my 2.5-gallon Infinity Barrel to make it less reactive when I start blending aged whiskeys into it. Anyways… here’s a review.

Death’s Door White Whiskey Review: Details and Tasting Notes

In Death’s Door’s Words: Death’s Door White Whiskey

Death’s Door White Whisky was a pioneer in the whisky category and has an 80:20 mash bill of hard red winter wheat to malted barley. The unique character of this spirit starts back in the process of fermenting the grains- utilizing a champagne yeast rather than a traditional whisky yeast. The spirit is then double-distilled up to 160 proof (80% ABV), rested in stainless steel, proofed down to 80 (40% ABV) and finished in uncharred Minnesota oak barrels to help bring the “white whisky” together and to meld this unique spirits’ flavors.

Death’s Door White Whiskey Review: OVERALL

This Death’s Door White Whiskey is among the worst things I have ever drank… yikes. I know white whiskey, moonshine, white dog, whatever-you-want-to-call-it isn’t supposed to be as complex as an aged spirit, but it’s supposed to at least be pleasant. It’s the raw spirit that becomes the aged product and if you don’t start in a good spot then you’re definitely not going to end in one.

Though maybe this is what they’re going for. It is called Death’s Door and being at Death’s Door isn’t going to be a pleasant place to be so maybe it’s actually spot on. It could be right where it needs to be, however, that’s not a place I want to be anytime soon so I’ll just pass it up and include it in the Infinity Barrel Program as a stripping whiskey. And so it goes.

SCORE: 10/100 (F-)
