Queen Jennie Sorghum Whiskey boasts that it is brewed from 100 percent Wisconsin sorghum. Sorghum is a cereal grass that is used often to feed animals. I will be honest and admit I never heard of Sorghum before I tried this. It isn’t distilled like rye or wheat because the sorghum is pressured into syrup and then fermented. The syrup becomes the main part of the Whiskey. Queen Jennie was named after Jennie Justo who is called Queen of the Bootleggers.
I bet you are wondering how sorghum tastes. It has a sweet taste from the grain but it’s not overly sweet. The difference makes you think you’re not even drinking whiskey but be warned if you down it too fast you will be reminded pretty quick. This is a great option for someone who is looking for a whiskey that’s not as potent. The taste is strong with vanilla and caramel flavors. The oak influence from barreling reminds you during the finish it is a whiskey.
