Located in Columbia, Tennessee, Daddy Rack is a whiskey brand few have probably heard of, though something tells me that will change soon. Their bottle label is sure to draw your attention if you see it on the shelf. The label provides ample detail on the whiskey inside (except for who distills it), and fifty cents from every bottle sold goes to charity CORE, an organization that supports children of restaurant employees. The whiskey inside is a crowd pleaser, and one that any up-and-coming whiskey drinker will absolutely love. Double charcoal mellowing puts it squarely on the sweeter side of the flavor spectrum, and it shows no signs of youth or anything off putting. However, as a more seasoned drinker, the whiskey is just a tad too light for me. I had to chew on it long and carefully to pull out the flavors I did, which are good, but light overall. To that end, I would love to taste this at a higher proof point. Until then, Daddy Rack is a low-priced whiskey that anyone who isn’t looking for a higher proof will really enjoy.
