High Rye Bourbon: Batch Three

This third batch of High Rye Bourbon Whiskey is now sold out. For this 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

Master Distiller John Schrepel says he’s quite pleased with how well Batch Three has followed up on the success of Batch Two: “On the nose, while slightly more grain-forward than Batch Two, this new release still pops with sweeter notes of vanilla, brown sugar, and caramel. Once again, the whiskey is very smooth, very well-rounded. Rye spice still pops out to me first, with the corn following right behind. The mouthfeel and finish are very close to the same as Batch Two. Very pleasant.”
