2022 marks the introduction of bourbon from Castle & Key Distillery in Frankfurt, Kentucky, with the release of small batches throughout the year. Blended from a pod of 60 barrels, this batch of straight bourbon whiskey contains a mash bill of 73% white corn, 10% rye, and 17% malted barley, and was aged a minimum of 4 years.
Aromas of Caramel apple, baked peach, mint, and toasted walnut precede a palate of buttered toffee, salted peanut, graham cracker, and cinnamon. Cracked black pepper and herbaceous eucalyptus linger on the finish. Each blended batch of this bourbon highlights different characteristics of Castle & Key’s developing house style which emphasizes the finest expressions of American whiskey over a singular profile. Non-chill filtered; 50% ABV.
