Two James Johnny Smoking Gun Whiskey is an American whiskey with a unique East-meets-West twist. It's crafted to complement Japanese cuisine, particularly rich pork and fish broths. Aged corn whiskey is blended with young rye and infused with Asian teas, resulting in a smoky flavor profile.

Description

Nose

The first impression is a captivating interplay of sweet and smoky notes. Gentle vanilla and caramel aromas, reminiscent of corn whiskey, intertwine with the essence of cured leather and tobacco. This smoky character isn’t the harsh campfire smoke you might expect, but rather a subtler, more intriguing hint, like embers smoldering in a fireplace. Some tasters even detect a hint of rosemary or lemon zest adding a touch of freshness.

Palate

The initial sweetness of corn takes center stage, offering flavors of vanilla and creamed corn. This sweetness is then balanced by the spicy kick of rye, introducing a pleasant peppery warmth. As you savor the whiskey, the smoky influence truly unfolds. Imagine the subtle smokiness of grilled meats or roasted squash blossoms, mingling with hints of hickory smoke and caramelized brown butter. This intriguing smokiness is attributed to the unique tea infusion process.

Finish

The warmth from the rye lingers on the finish, accompanied by a subtle smokiness that reminds you of oregano or smoked paprika. Delicate flavors of browned butter and thyme may also emerge, leaving a lasting impression on the palate.
