Witherspoon’s Cross Timbers Texas Malt Whiskey
Quentin D. Witherspoon created a distillery in Lewisville, Texas. Reading his “about” page he is a lot like many of us that took his interest in Appalachian stilling and moonshining and turned it into creating his own still to ultimately opening up a full blown distillery. He has a few whiskey’s and appears to have some Rum (have not tried it yet).
I picked up a bottle of his Cross Timbers Single Malt Whiskey at Goody Goodys the other day. I hadn’t seen Cross Timbers before. Aged for at least 9 months in heavy charred white oak barrels. Made from 2/3rds malted barley and 1/3 white wheat. It’s light caramel in color. It has a nice front bite. I pick up some hints of green apple and orange. It finishes with less bite on the back end but a charred smokey note on the swallow followed with citrus after taste.
