Add to Cart
Temperance Trader Barrel Strength Straight Bourbon Whiskey is a sourced bourbon composed of a mashbill of 65% corn, 25% rye and 10% malted barley. After the bourbon is aged for a minimum of four years (although a number of barrels are aged as long as five years) in 53-gallon, charred American oak barrels, Medoff hand-selects fewer than a dozen barrels to blend together. "I'm looking for that perfect combination of sweet and spicy,"he says. "We already have a lot of rye in the bourbon, which helps counter the flavor of the sweet corn, but I'm looking to get that perfect balance."
After selecting a handful of barrels, the casks are married together and bottled at cask strength. As a result, Temperance Trader Barrel Strength Straight Bourbon Whiskey has an aroma of vanilla, smoke ,and spices that gives way to notes of roasted corn, honeyed oak, and cinnamon on the palate. The finish is is slightly sweet, with hints of oak, dried fruits, and chocolate.
