Barrell Whiskey Batch 001

Blended from 7 and 8 year-old whiskeys aged in oak, this American Whiskey is unlike any other. Imagine a brioche French toast dripping with fresh-churned butter and dark maple syrup. With each bite, a spiciness reminiscent of fine, stone ground chocolate lingers in the back of the mouth. Soft to the palate throughout, the next sip is always welcome.

 

The mash is a mix of corn, rye, and malted barley. Akin to a “Vatted Malt,” no neutral grain spirit is added. We do not chill filter, a common practice that removes natural, flavor rich oils. Only a coarse particulate filter strains the small bits of charred oak surrendered by the barrel. Like many great whiskeys, this spirit has aged gently in ex-bourbon barrels. As much as we love the intense flavor of a bourbons, the abundant wood sugars in the new barrels required for their production mask many subtler, complex flavors. This spirit’s patient aging in used cooperage yields a drier dram open to revealing these subtle essences of taste.

FLAVOR NOTES

Crusty, egg battered brioche – French toast dripping in butter and dark maple syrup. Brooding alcohol explodes right up front, no mistaking the 122.5 Proof stuffing of each slurp. Thin rivulets of bruleed corn pudding. Rich swirls of darkly scented, spicy Mexican chocolate become soft eruptions at the finish, leaving you with visions of the next sip.
