Broadslab Legacy Reserve
The Broad Slab Distillery has a great story and a very good spirits. Made in the moonshine capital of Johnston County N.C., this whiskey is hand crafted from farm to bottle. The aromas in the Broadslab Legacy Reserve are inviting and warming. Sweet caramel, rice pudding, cigar box, and a bit of campfire aromas tickle the nostrils as the 45% ABV lifts from the glass.
On the palate, this youthful whiskey has subtle caramel flavors masked by smoky wood. The finish has a un-popped popcorn thing going on with a small spirits-y or ethanolic closing that brings a sense of balance as well as backbone to this medium bodied whiskey. I recommend a splash of water to soften the alcohol and make the aromas pop. Cheers!

From The Distillery
A LEGACY OF NORTH CAROLINA MOONSHINE PERFECTION
Since before the days of prohibition the “Broadslab” region has been known for the quality and quantity of home-brewed whiskey. Jeremy Norris, Broadslab owner and master distiller, traced his family lines back in order to capture the rich heritage of the region’s famed moonshine when building Broadslab Distillery.
It’s a history rich with exploits, perseverance, and a quality product. Our recipes are the embodiment of this legacy and were passed down by the great-great grandfathers on both sides of Jeremy’s family. One of them, William “Bill” McLamb, was active in the dawn of the Moonshine trade and distilling smooth, sipping whiskey long before prohibition.
But, it was Jeremy’s grandfather, Leonard A. Wood, who passed on the family recipe. As Jeremy’s mentor and personal advisor, he was integral in building the Broadslab still, but passed away before opening. The Distillery sits in the footprint of many of his stills and the legacy on the family farm outside Benson, NC.
