Wilderness Trail Single Barrel Bourbon and Rye Whiskey Bundle
Bourbon and Kentucky go hand in hand. No drink embodies the traditions and flavor of the South quite like it. Bold, sweet, spicy, and welcoming to the palate.
Even though bourbon can be distilled anywhere in the U.S., if it does not follow the basic regulations established in the 1800s, it cannot be called bourbon. The most “American” of drinks, bourbon has been defined by names like Jim Beam, Buffalo Trace, and Makers Mark, all of which have their mass production bottles along with their boutique and high-end labels. Setting yourself out from the pack is no small feat, but with the talented palates of Shane Baker and Pat Heist helming Wilderness Trail Distillery, there are sure to be some waves made.
Tasting Notes: Wilderness Trail Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey Bottled in Bond
Vital Stats: 100 proof. Mash bill of 64% corn, 24% rye, and 12% malted barley. No age statement on the bottle.
Appearance: Rich amber that falls down the side of the glass in thick legs.
Nose: Butterscotch and ripe peach with a hint of red apple hit the nose with a sweet and fruity front. This is rounded out with a welcome note of oak and brown sugar. In the background there is a slight hint of wood varnish for a gentle sour twang.
Palate: Sharp heat wakes up the palate. Malt and brown sugar are front and center with a flavor reminiscent of rye bread. Cinnamon and black pepper provide a robust spicy character that is smoothed out by oak and a bit of citrus from orange peel. Ice brings out the baking spices with clove and nutmeg while calming the sharpness a bit. The back end of the tongue picks up a pleasant vanilla note that opens up in the aftertaste.
