The "Bloody Butcher" in the name of this whiskey refers to the type of corn used, an heirloom varietal from the southern United States with strikingly red kernels. This corn makes up the majority of the mashbill, along with malted rye and barley.

Tasting Notes

"This is a young bourbon -- just 9 months for the youngest component of the blend -- but it's well made. It's sweet on the palate, with notes of cherry, vanilla, pipe tobacco, and butterscotch. Bottled at a generous 95 proof, it also carries a little heat and spice. It's enjoyable now, but may be even more interesting to watch if the distillery produces older expressions using this corn varietal."
