Choice barrels of Waitsburg Bourbon Whiskey are occasionally selected for these bottlings. As with vintage wine bottlings, there’s no exact schedule for these releases. At barrel strength this bourbon presents an explosive nose of concentrated spice and toasted sugars. The finish is long , with heightened aromas of toffee, bright cherry , fresh tobacco leaf, vanilla bean, and smoke. The spicy kick of a high rye content is balanced by sweet smooth corn and the unmistakably silky viscosity of organic Washington soft white winter wheat. Aged initially in ten-gallon American Oak casks and then matured in 53 gallon barrels, this meticulously handcrafted bourbon has mellow tannins even at a higher proof.
Never chill-filtered, these Cask Strength releases present bourbon enthusiasts the opportunity to fine-tune their enjoyment.
