Just in time for Bourbon Heritage Month, Milam & Greene Whiskey is releasing Unabridged Volume 2: A Blend of Straight Bourbon Whiskies. This new release pays homage to Heather's Whisk(e)y Distilled book that she wrote. It also showcases the incomparable talents of the distillery team under the direction of our Master Blender, Heather Greene, who was recently honored as the “2023 Master Blender of the Year.”
To create Unabridged Volume 2, Milam & Greene harvests bourbon that they distilled in the small copper pot still in Texas and in larger column stills in Kentucky, both using malted rye in the proprietary mash bill. Tennessee barrels of different ages add structure and tannins to round out this exciting blend. This cask-strength blend incorporates some of the rarest casks from the distillery’s library.
This beautiful bourbon has fragrant aromas of dark cherry, fig, sweet almond, menthol, fine boot leather, anise, and caramel candy. It is full-bodied with a viscous mouthfeel carrying bold flavors of dark cherry cola notes characteristic of well-aged bourbon followed by dark brown sugar, sweet black tea, marzipan, and oak. The whiskey’s flavor develops into a round smooth oily finish with fresh bread, licorice, and citrus oil. It packs a punch at 58.8% ABV / 117.6 Proof. Let it rest in the glass to breathe for a moment before enjoying it neat, on ice, with a teaspoon of water, or in a cocktail.
