This release from Chicken Cock is a limited edition holiday release for 2020. Master Distiller Gregg Snyder for Grain & Spirits, owners of the Chicken Cock brand, selected 10 barrels of Kentucky straight bourbon for this release. The mash bill of the bourbon was 78.5% corn, 13% rye, and 8.5% malted barley. After 15 years of aging in new, charred American oak barrels, the bourbon was batched and bottled at barrel proof of 57% ABV without chill-filtration.

Tasting Notes

"A fifteen-year-old bourbon can be a risky proposition, taking a chance on being over-oaked. Fortunately, this release from Chicken Cock is mature but not past its prime. Supple and velvety, the palate features vanilla, date, and subtle aniseed, and finishes with a sweet note of cherry. It's a superb sipper, as is at cask strength or with a little water or ice to open it up."
