Not all barrels are created equal. Only the best, most flavorful barrels earn the right to show off their full potential. Enjoy this bourbon in its truest form, uncut and unfiltered.
Wild and untamed, not for the faint of heart.
Our most recent release and one we're extremely proud of. This is not just an uncut unfiltered barrel proof version of our small batch. The goal here was to create a bourbon that was smooth and enjoyable at the higher proof while maintaining some spice from the younger vintage.
The flavor profile of each chosen barrel had to be perfect. The older vintage came from barrels with significant volume loss, leaving behind a thick and caramel-like liquid. And since we’d have to use more of the older vintage to achieve that smoothness, the smaller amount of younger vintages would have to be intense. Only the spiciest of our younger vintages were chosen, ensuring some rye spice would still shine through.
After going through all this effort will we be offended if you want to add ice or water? Hell no! We do it all the time. Want to cut down on the heat? Toss in some ice. Want to access all those sweet notes from the older vintage? Add some water and it'll really open up. But if you want to experience the heat for which an uncut unfiltered is known, just pour some into a glass and it'll be there for you.
Balanced oak nose with notes of hazelnut, coffee and dark chocolate.
Initial sweet notes on the front of the tongue followed by tastes of shortbread and black tea. Extremely smooth and thick balanced mouth feel finishing with rye spice notes of white pepper on the middle and back of the tongue from the younger vintage and high rye mash bill.
