Boondocks Cask Strength American Whiskey
Boondocks // Kentucky, USA
Boondocks is a whiskey out of Bardstown, Kentucky with a high-corn mash bill. While the ingredients are similar to bourbon, it is referred to as "American Whiskey" since it is aged in American oak which previously held whiskey rather than new charred oak as is required for bourbon. This version is bottled from the cask at 127 proof.

"Though the proof is high, the whiskey feels soft and pillowy in the mouth. It's a deft balance of malty corn cereal, milk chocolate, maple and vanilla sweetness mixed with earthier notes of oak, spice and leatheriness. Only a faint hot tickle catches the back of the throat at the end, though flavorwise, the finish comes up a bit short."
