Cask Strength Straight Bourbon - Still Austin Whiskey Co.

Cask Strength Straight Bourbon

Strap in, because we’re proud to introduce our long-anticipated Cask Strength Straight Bourbon. This is a deeper, more “metal” version of our beloved Straight Bourbon, made from a select blend of choice barrels, and bottled at a grow-hair-on-your-chest 118 proof. In an act of masterful artistry, our distillers were able to combine power and subtlety into one gorgeous spirit. Velvet glove, meet iron fist.

How We Make Cask Strength Bourbon

To create this robust bourbon, we asked our Master Blender Nancy “The Nose” Fraley to search through our barrels of Straight Bourbon and select the most complex and full-flavored ones—those that were begging to be blended and released at “barrel proof,” meaning the whiskey was bottled at the same proof at which it was aged. The resulting spirit is a masterpiece of complex, dark flavors with a deep spice finish.
