One and Only Buckwheat makes Saveur Favorite Whiskey List!

The aptly named One and Only Buckwheat isn’t technically a whiskey (to be called whiskey, it must be distilled from grain, which buckwheat is not), but it deserves a spot on any whiskey aficionado’s shelf. Made from 80% buckwheat, and, as far as I can tell, the only spirit of its kind in the United States, it’s one of those drinks that makes you scratch your head and go back for a second sip. Earthy aromas give way to flavors peppery and sweet, with notes of barley, cane sugar, and vanilla. A weird and wonderful addition to the American craft spirits scene, Buckwheat is best enjoyed straight up and shared with friends who can join you as you speculate on the tasting notes: some fruitcake maybe? Or cereal? – Marshall Bright
