Chicken Cock 10 Year Double Barrel Bourbon is a limited edition release from Grain & Barrel Spirits who revived the Chicken Cock brand, first established in 1856. The 10 year old bourbon was distilled at MGP in Indiana from a mash bill of 70% corn, 21% rye, and 9% malted barley. Chicken Cock master distiller Gregg Snyder selected twelve barrels and blended two barrels together creating six batches. Only 1980 bottles were produced and will be available in select markets beginning October 2018.

Tasting Notes

"The name seems to imply this is a finished bourbon, but it actually references that it's a blend of two barrels. Find rye spice on the nose with touches of licorice and spearmint, along with vanilla taffy, marzipan, and peanut brittle. The palate is rich and chewy, with barrel char, baking spices, oak, Baker's chocolate, and a touch of maple syrup. A lengthy finish showcases vanilla, crème brûlée, spicy oak, and peanut shells. Batch #2/6."
