Sourced and aged in Tennessee, but crafted and bottled in Kentucky, Batch 008 is a 132.8 proof cask-strength bottling. The mash-bill is 70% corn, 25% rye, and 5% malted barley and is aged for 9.5 years in a new American oak barrel with a #4 char. This is yet another addition to a line of whiskeys in which no two batches are the same.

Tasting Notes

"The heat is strong with this one! Give this a moment to let the aggression settle down and you'll find a slew of spices, maple syrup, orange zest, and (interestingly enough) fresh-cut wood. The burn is so much more subdued than it should be for 132.8 and brings sticky orange marmalade spiced with something exotic--perhaps garam masala? Cocoa nibs and a distinct grassiness make for a very organic feeling finish."
