The Presidential Dram
Bourbon Barrel Pick
Mashbill – 75% corn, 21% rye and 4% malted barley
Bottled at cask strength 113.16 proof Non-Chill Filtered
$49.99 / 750ml
We jumped at the opportunity to pick a barrel from Proof & Wood, a name which may not mean much to some of you. They bottle a line of bourbons called the DC Collection (The Senator, The Ambassador, The Justice, Etc.) that are sourced from MGP in Lawrenceburg, Indiana; the distiller for many iconic brands.
This barrel was distilled on May 13th, 2015 and bottled in late January of this year, making it nearly five years in barrel.
The initial flavor is caramel and graham cracker that evolves into tobacco, cinnamon and nutmeg; with a pleasant balanced finish. We hope you enjoy this as much as we do!
Maker’s Mark Single Barrel Stave Select $69.99
This was one of the most interesting bourbon selections we have ever done, as we picked ten staves from four different flavors to finish a barrel of Maker’s Mark Cask Strength in. It was aged eleven weeks with the staves before bottling and we are very pleased with the results, a truly unique bourbon bottled at 111.3 proof with no water added. This is quite different from a normal wheated bourbon with a nice sweet caramel flavor up front with spicy char notes on the finish.
Kilchoman Slightly Peated Sherry Single Hogshead $134.99
Kilchoman Slightly Peated Bourbon Single Hogshead $134.99
These two casks were selected by the iconic Jack Rose Dining Saloon in Washington, D.C., a stop that should be on every whisk(e)y drinkers list. They were kind enough to allow us to buy some for our customers and we are thrilled to offer them, as Kilchoman is our favorite farm to bottle Islay distillery!
