Old Elk is a project that those in the “know” have been waiting a decade to come to fruition. Greg Metze was the master distiller at MGP for the last 38 years and is the wizard behind the curtain of many of your favorite bourbons. He left MGP to start his own project & turn all of his experience in to his Opus. Old Elk makes a few different expressions but what I found the most interesting is his Wheated Bourbon. To have the opportunity to buy a bottle from a single barrel of 6-year-old juice at cask strength from Old Elk is what the Bourbon Buyers Club is all about.
Bottled at Cask Strength – 115.4 proof
A very balanced sipper for sure- on the nose, buttered popcorn, vanilla & Toffee.
On the palate- dried peach, baked apple pie & milk chocolate.
The finish is long and lingering with a sweetness that gives way to winter spice that goes on for 2 minutes .
