Our tasting notes.
The nose brings delicate notes of kumquats, spun candy, butter menthols, furniture polish and pencil shavings. Let it settle in the glass and aromas of warm cornbread, vanilla frosting, spiced pears and rich muscovado sugar swirl from the liquid.
The palate is thick and juicy, starting a little tart before those comforting morning bakery flavours of hot cross buns and cinnamon donuts coat the mouth with some ginger spice and Turkish coffee on the back end.
The rye grain really shines on the finish with lingering notes of toasted oak, rum and raison chocolate and subtle char.
Final thoughts: Four grains of pure delight. This whisky is what we like to call a creeper, slowly revealing the sum of its parts with a little air and plenty of patience. The four grains sing in harmony, not at all over done, but co-existing in many wonderful layers of spirit and wood. Wild River excellence.

It’s no secret that distiller Wes Marks has a real penchant for American corn whiskey and this four-grain release is a true reflection of the fact. Produced from locally grown Atherton Tablelands corn, malted rye, wheat and barley, the grains were mashed using Wild River’s underground spring and then fermented with their distillers’ unique choice of yeast before been laid to rest in virgin, American oak.
Sold out at the distillery, Wes sent us a generous allocation for our whisk(e)y supporters who may have missed out. The whiskey is delicious and unique and should appeal to both bourbon and single malt fans alike.
