This grain-to-glass distillery uses four types of malted barley and two yeast strains for their single malt. It is fermented with open top fermentation for 4-5 days before being double-distilled with a traditional direct-fire copper pot-still. This whiskey is aged at least 2 years in new, white American oak in Buena Vista, Colorado; the distillery's location. Availability limited to Colorado at this time.

Tasting Notes

"Warm amber with prevalent red undertones in color. Strong chocolate, caramel, and honey in the nose. Spicy initial attack with subtle earthy notes. Warm Baker's chocolate in the mid-palate remains through the finish. Caramel, raisin, and toffee are also present in the clean, lingering aftertaste."
