Our third single barrel of Whistle Pig and the first time we have our hands on their 6-year PiggyBack bottling. This one leads with a nose of freshly baked pumpernickel bread, butterscotch and toffee. On the palate, I get a lot of citrus & peach with a touch of lavender & black cherry. The finish here is strong & long with spicy dried fruits and caramel notes that linger. This one was distilled in house in Vermont, and as anyone can tell you with the farm releases, they always deliver the best of punches. This one comes in at 109.8 Proof.
The Macallan Rare is truly all about the casks. It’s crafted from the finest and rarest sherry seasoned oak casks to deliver The Macallan’s full-bodied flavor profile and deliver that ‘WOW’ factor. The 2023 Rare Cask release is a collaboration with musician Charlie Burchill of Simple Minds. The idea is that in a sensory world, the parallels between sound, aromas, flavor and color are all intertwined through the shared element of wood. There aren’t many of these babies made each year. It’s literally in the name!
True whiskey and Knob Creek enthusiasts are going to go nuts for this one. Knob Creek Rye is as outstanding as it is rare but today we’re lucky enough to bring to you, my own single barrel of it. This is a big gold expression of Rye that holds nothing back. On the nose, there are hints of dill, rye and essence of charred oak. On the palate, you are hit over the head with baking spice, honey and freshly baked bread. The finish is certainly a warm “Kentucky Hug” that goes on forever.
The Macallan 15 Year Old Double Cask is a balanced single malt whisky created by bringing together the perfect harmony of two oaks into one exceptional single malt whisky. Sherry seasoned American oak adds delicate vanilla to the subtle spice of European oak, delivering a whisky with a sweeter, warmer taste and character. This has become a true bread and butter product for the distillery. It delivers notes of signature spice to go along with apple pie, some dried citrus fruits, vanilla and butterscotch.
The 18-Year Sherry Oak is an iconic bottling from The Macallan that features an incredibly robust and energetic expression of Single Malt Scotch. It’s lead by European Oak and sherry seasoned in Spain. It hits all the right notes while delivering a warm but incredibly balanced punch. Notes of fig, orange peel, raisin, cocoa and cinnamon dominate the palate. At 86 Proof it’s powerful, but it’s not overpowering and so expertly crafted, it’ll keep you coming back for more.
Everybody in the whiskey world knows Baker’s. They have one heck of a reputation. They only make one two things their 7 year and the 13-year, and their 7-year single barrel straight Bourbon just means it is aged for at least 7 years. I was just allocated six bottles, and ours is special – it happens to be aged 8 years and 1 month! Bottled at the signature 107 Proof, this is a flat-out delicious bottle of bourbon from the distillery that makes no two barrels alike. This one hits with notes of Toffee, caramel, peanuts and black pepper. The mouthfeel is full and distinct with dried fruits joining the party and a smooth, lengthy finish.
I’m once again doing a little something special for this made-up holiday. I held back 24 bottles each from three of my favorite single barrel sourcing projects of the year and decided to package them all together in a 3-pack, go out at an outrageous price and create a little Black Friday magic. Each Whiskey Trio includes:
1 btl. Knob Creek Nicholas Single Barrel Reserve Rye #4
1 btl. Whistle Pig Piggyback Nicholas Single Barrel Small Batch 6-Year Rye
1 btl. Knob Creek Nicholas Single Barrel Reserve Bourbon #5
The third release of three batches from Booker’s Bourbon 2023 Collection is Booker’s Batch 2023-03 ‘Might Fine Batch.’ These mini-releases have become extremely popular, and for good reason. “The vanilla and brown sugar sweet notes come through very well from the white oak barrels this bourbon aged in for over seven years. The taste is great and full bodied; when I added a splash of water, it opened up some great flavors, with a finish that gives a lovely “Kentucky Hug. My Dad would say that this is a Mighty Fine batch of Booker’s.” -Fred Noe
A new High West release is always met with a ton of anticipation, but if you’re a fan of the Cabernet Cask finishes on Bourbons and Tequilas like I am, then this one is 100% right up your alley. The aromas absolutely drip out of the bottle—a mix of cherries, oranges, and chocolate dance on the tongue, followed by some nuttiness intertwined with a hint of the used Cabernet barrel. It’s got some spice to it, a little hickory smoke, and some dark cocoa notes at the end that keep you coming back over and over again.
Rich and creamy notes of toasted oak, vanilla, caramel, and fresh baked sourdough immediately flood the senses as soon as you pop this one open. Bottled at 100-Proof, you get a little bit of heat on the front palate followed by rich oak, burnt sugar and freshly baked bread. As it starts to open, you get some sweeter, creamy vanilla notes that creep in as well as campfire s’mores and a dash of pepper. The finish is long, and very memorable and leaves you wanting more.
This is my sixth private barrel with Knob Creek overall (my fifth 10-year, 120-Proof Single Barrel) and I am consistently blown away by the ratio of quality to value here. It barely makes any sense. Nobody else comes close.
I once again found myself with one of the more and limited bottlings from the good people at Michter’s It comes in a round 111 Proof and is a monster from one of the best distilleries out there. This bottling is usually between 107 and 112 Proof but isn’t made every year (only in the good years). It’s oozing with seductive aromas of Cinnamon, rye spice, chocolate and freshly baked gingerbread. Cinnamon, dark chocolate, a hint of Cayenne pepper mixed with charred sugar and oak explode out of the bottle and greet you head on. I wish I had more than six of these beauties to pass out. Such is life.
