Pennsylvania Straight Peated Bourbon Whiskey - "Sweet Peat" Single Barrel - 123 proof - 750 mL - 99 bottles available
We are excited to announce a new program of very limited whiskeys that we plan on releasing going forward. Our new barrel proof single barrel program will be based on finding those special barrels that all four members of our family deem worthy of this single barrel program. The timing of these releases will be unpredictable as we want to set a very high bar for a barrel to get this designation.
The inaugural release of our single barrel cask strength program is a straight peated bourbon that we've been keeping our eye on for quite some time now. With a mash bill of 59% Bloody Butcher Corn, 31% Peated Malt and 10% Non-Peated Malt this whiskey is a perfect combination of an American Bourbon and an Islay style Scotch.
This whiskey was aged in a 25 gallon, char #3 barrel for over 2 years. With a barrel entry of 115.4 proof and having been stored in the hottest rick in our barrel house, this single barrel gained proof during aging and is coming in at an impressive 123 proof (61.5% ABV). Combining the subtle sweetness of our Bloody Butcher corn and the gentle smokiness of the peated malt, we've called this release "Sweet Peat". This single barrel will be very limited with only 99 bottles available for sale for $59 for a 750 ml bottle.
And as always - this bottling is unfiltered to maximize flavor.
