Milam & Greene Castle Hill Series 13 Year Barrel Proof Bourbon
The Castle Hill Series Batch 1 is the inaugural release of Milam and Greene's limited edition series that celebrates the art of blending vintage casks. The series is named for the historic Texas Military Institute, also known as “The Castle,” which overlooks the Capitol Building in Austin, Texas. Master Blender Heather Greene created this first batch of this limited edition in her blending lab inside the Castle during the quiet months of 2020. The Castle Hill Series Batch 1 showcases Greene’s cask selection and blending skills. Only twenty barrels, each aged at least 13 years, were mingled to create this stunning whiskey, making it the most limited of the distillery’s boutique whiskeys.
The Milam & Greene Castle Hill Series Batch 1 declares its age with a deep amber color. Its complexity is immediately apparent with scents of vanilla, almond, citrus, chocolate, oak, and tobacco. Bottled at barrel proof 108.5 (54.25 ABV), the whiskey is an authoritative expression of bourbon, with a backbone of spice and tannins. It is intricate on the palate with characteristic bourbon sweetness, finishing with a lingering rush of warm spice.
