George Dickel x Leopold Bros Collaboration Blend
This whiskey is a blend of straight rye whiskeys -- one is a traditional column still rye distilled in Tennessee at Cascade Hollow Distilling Co., home to George Dickel and the other was distilled at Colorado's Leopold Bros on their Three Chamber Rye still. Not only is this collaboration a first, but this is also the first time that a rye whisky has been released by Cascade Hollow. Bottled at 100 proof, this is a "highly limited release" which hits shelves as of December 2021.
Teacher's Highland Cream
It is said that William Teacher would not give his name to his blend until he had found perfection. Highland Cream was that whisky. At 45% it has one of the highest single malt contents of any blend and uses fully peated Ardmore whisky as it's fingerprint malt. The combination is incredible depth and smoothness combined with a rich smokey undertones.
Benriach Smoke Season
Benriach Smoke Season is a small batch bottling of the distillery’s seasonal production run, during which peated spirit passes through its stills, representing a tradition revived by the distillery over 50 years ago. The spirit uses 100% Highland peated malt from a recipe tweaked by Master Blender Rachel Barrie, batch distilled and matured in first fill bourbon barrels combined with a high proportion of charred and toasted American virgin oak casks. It is bottled at 52.8% ABV and available in limited quantities as of September, 2021.
