This whiskey is comprised of a mashbill of barley, oats, and rye "rare blend"--that is, 451 Spirits uses a mash where no one grain takes up 50% or more of the bill. It's distilled in an old-style pot-still, aged using the Solera system (common in Spanish wineries to provide consistency), and is only filtered to remove solids. A small portion is redistilled with smoked apples and blended back into the base product for balance. Note: Your best bet for obtaining a bottle is to head to Ohio; Columbus in particular.

Tasting Notes

"At first the nose is almost like an apple cider vinegar. Once it settles, the smoke comes through and you get lovely dry pork-rub aroma. Notes of tobacco, BBQ, and candied apples come through as if you were at a county fair. The taste is right on track with the aroma: applewood chips, molasses, caramel, and--believe it or not--churros. This whiskey is weird, but worth a try."
