Made from 80-90% corn, the spirit is distilled to 160-190 proof and aged for 11 years in used oak barrels. While it has a bourbon-ish base, it is not legally a bourbon because the product is not made to bourbon's legal standards--it doesn't use new, charred barrels and it exceeds proof limits at distillation.

Tasting Notes

"This nose is a confectioner's dream! Lots of marshmallow dominates the nose with hints of oak varnish and some buttery notes. Despite using used oak, the woody notes are very upfront with this whiskey. Marshmallow makes another appearance, but is roasted this time; with the used barrels, the char wood smoke is more subtle as one would expect. The finish is short and sweet. "
