Jeptha Creed have quite an array of products but the tastings here are going to concentrate on the vodka and whiskey that is just 6 months old. The whiskey gives a really good feel for the direction Jeptha are going in and the vodka gives a really good indication of the quality of product they are making.
Bloody Butcher’s Creed- Batch 3 46%abv
Light golden with a hint of orange to it.
Quite quiet on the nose. I was expecting something more full on given the age but it’s actually very restrained. What you do get is slight green apple and pear drop and acetone type aromas. I also get a little cream soda in there as well.
More complex than the nose with more of the expected raw spirit coming through. There is good vanilla and caramel notes and some lemon and orange/ orange blossom notes. There is a touch of white spice pepper.
The finish has a slight edge to it with the spirit being so young but with vanilla and some of the fruit carrying through in a shortish finish.
Jeptha Creed Original Vodka 40%abv
Clean with a gentle cereal character- butter popcorn.
Touch of fruit ester- slight apple – very delicate alongside the subtle popcorn note.
Excellent clean short finish.
