Bootlegger 21 New York Bourbon
Prohibition Distillery // New York, USA
Prohibition Distillery Master Distiller Brian Facquet named his bourbon for the 21st Amendment repealing Prohibition. It's made from a mash of 100% New York state grown corn and aged in barrel sizes that vary by batch between 5 to 30 gallons for a year and change. To preserve the integral flavors of the whiskey, it's only filtered through cotton mesh before blending with water to 92 proof. This whiskey is certified gluten free and Kosher. Note: pricing is per 375 ml.
BourbonProduced anywhere in USA; Mash bill of at least 51% corn; aged in new, charred oak containers.

"This whiskey very much has a "work in progress" feel to it. The bones are there, but the flavors don't quite make it yet, and it comes off a bit harsh and rustic. Perhaps in the spirit of sipping something that honors Prohibition era New York State whiskey there is a certain appeal. Hopefully future releases of this distillery's more mature whiskeys will show more promise. Sadly, this one is still too much of a young upstart."
