Smoke Wagon Straight Bourbon
An affordable everyday bourbon with delicate sweet notes and a rye spice finish. Barrels with high rye mash bills were racked on the top two floors of the warehouse and never rotated. The higher the floor the hotter it gets in the summer causing more expansion and more movement into the wood. This, as well being non chill filtered creates a bourbon that is rich and creamy beyond its years. Never rotating the barrels ensures there are no harsh tannin flavors and the high rye mash bill adds a delightful spicy and nutty finish.
Honey, toasted nuts and oak on the nose. Creamy mouthfeel with rich sweet notes of honey and caramel on the tip of the tongue, followed by nuts, oak and pepper spice that starts on the sides of your tongue. The nuttiness and oak fade as pepper spice from the rye takes over the entirety of your palate. Finishes with a creamy sweetness that coats followed by once again by oak and a pepper spice that lingers. Bottled at 46.25% abv.
