Straight Bourbon Whiskey - Barrel Strength

61% Acl/Vol | 122 Proof

95% Rye | 5% Malted Barley

Winner of multiple Double Gold medals at the prestigious San Francisco World Spirits Competition, this bourbon showcases our expertise in sourcing top-quality whiskey and has become one of the most awarded and sought-after on the market.

This bourbon is selected from some of the best barrels in our sourced stock and is a true embodiment of what makes our Adoption Series so special. Aged over 4 years and bottled at barrel strength, it has a full flavor profile that all truly excellent bourbons exhibit. Layers of complex flavor reveal a potpourri of baking spices - cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and allspice - all wrapped around dried fruits of fig, date, and plum. The finish is long, dominated by spice and charred oak, and finishing quite clean. Experience a remarkable bourbon while helping us make a significant impact for our four-legged friends.

Tasting Notes

NOSE:  Aromas of vanilla and baked cherry pie. Ripened dates and brown sugar.

PALATE:  Dark brown sugar hits the tongue with vanilla and pie crust. It's well balanced on the palate with flavors of toffee, butterscotch, and ripe fruit. Milk chocolate and nougat from the wood sugar.

FINISH:  A creamy, warm finish that's well balanced and smooth for its proof. Water amplifies the spice rather than fruit. Try it with a large block of ice and enjoy how it evolves.
