High Rye Bourbon Whiskey: Batch Two

This second batch of High Rye Bourbon Whiskey—now sold out—was specially blended for a one-time, limited-barrel release. We hand-selected white corn, Elbon rye, and “wildfire” malted barley. Then we put the humidity and rapidly shifting temperatures of Central Texas to work, coaxing flavors from the charred oak barrels in our rickhouse. The result: warm spice aromas that leap out of the glass to greet you, followed by delicious caramel notes derived from original, thoughtfully sourced grains.

Mash bill

70% Non-GMO white corn, 25% rye and 5% malted barley.

Tasting notes

From our Master Blender, Nancy Fraley: “Delightfully sweet aromas shine through on the initial nose, followed by waves of browned butter with baking spices such as cinnamon, allspice, and clove. The alcohol is soft and round on the palate, with a surprisingly long finish, depth, and finesse.”
