Easy-going and uncluttered, but also not very complex. Balanced, straightforward notes of caramel, vanilla, creamed corn, subtle fruit, soft mint, and delicate cinnamon. A versatile bourbon: you won’t feel guilty using it in a cocktail, and it will do in a pinch to drink neat or with a splash of water. (Summer 2012) Reviewed by: John Hansell
The mash consists of pristine Kentucky water and a proprietary blend of American corn, rye, barley and wheat. Heirloom yeast is added after the cook, yielding the sweet gold liquid that will be distilled to spirit. Maturation reaches its peak when the whiskey has been aged to perfection in charred American oak barrels, adding a subtle level of smokiness to the sweetness of the corn. Exposure to the rackhouse elements allows the barrels do their part in creating a unique, one of a kind bourbon.
