Overall: I was quite impressed with this Wheated Mash from Shady Mile. I always do my best to look past the age when I'm trying them for the first time as each product differs quite a bit. Sure, the initial taste was youthful, but after sipping a few more times, the flavors start to show their identity. The Apple Cider tone I mentioned in the review was a great treat. This is a very easy sipping wheater with a lot of pop. I'm always curious to see what a little more time in a barrel would do, but for now, a nice one especially at this price range.

Give their products a look here:

Thank you to the great folks at Shady Mile for sending me the samples and for some great communication on Instagram.
