Kinsey 10-Year American Whiskey

Kinsey 10-year is an American whiskey produced by New Liberty Distillery which is located in North Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. We were introduced to this little gem this past weekend by Frank from the Omni Parker House Last Hurrah. I’ve said it before and I will say it again, some of the best whiskies we’ve been introduced to have been introduced to us by Frank. He is extremely knowledgeable in the industry. This whiskey was no exception.

It is a blended whiskey is made from 100% corn and is aged in used oak barrels. This whiskey is a revival of the original blend, paying homage to the original distillery which was once by the Schuylkill River in the 19th century.

Tasting Notes
Nose: sweet, oak and vanilla
Palate: lemon zest, caramel, vanilla, light sweet and smooth
Finish: honey, caramel and wood

Wow, I’ll be honest, I’m partial to Scotch whisky and it’s very rarely that I find amazing America whiskies that impress me like this one did. This whiskey is smooth, silky, light and sweet with a little bite at the end. Why had I not tasted this before!!!

This Pennsylvania whiskey can go up against a few of Kentucky’s best, it is that good. It is blended beautifully, and the quality is outstanding for the price you pay. Right after Frank introduced us to it, we found it and bought a bottle. We purchased our bottle at $39.

Father’s Day is just around the corner, if your father is an America whiskey fan and he hasn’t tried this whiskey, I guarantee you it will make for a great gift that won’t break the bank. Heck, I’d even be willing to pay a bit more for it. This is an America whiskey done right and I highly recommend trying.

Cheers!

    I have no doubt that this is a pretty good corn whiskey. I got a bottle of Kinsey 7 year old corn whiskey about 3 years ago, a blend of 7 and 18 year olds. The rep was nice enough to tell me that it was sourced from MGP. Nothing on their website or the bottle indicates this. However the distillery hasn’t been around long enough to produce a 10 year old whiskey.

      It is a very good corn blended whiskey. I do find it interesting what the rep shared with you and I agree, it’s not indicated anywhere on the site. It’s no secret, now a day, that many of these distilleries have been outsourcing while they wait till their products mature. I’d be curious to find out if this is the case here. Thanks for sharing this information.
