Every time Stephen distilled the mesquite-smoked product, he noticed the unique complexity of the distillate coming out of the still. Not something we originally planned on marketing, the Clear mesquite-smoked unaged whiskey got such a great reception from a tasting with the Tucson Chapter of the US Bartenders’ Guild, that we had to start bottling it. Their passion for our Clear as a smokey base for mixing cocktails couldn’t be denied. And having spent many an evening with it neat or on the rocks, we can say it is quite pleasant by itself. You may get complex aromas of leather, dried ancho chili, dust, and dried herbs on the nose. Smoke dominates the palette up front with sweet, vegetal notes on the finish.
