Delaware Phoenix is the product of one woman--Cheryl Lins. She quite literally does everything at the distillery, from mashing to delivering finished bottles, and everything in between. All of the bourbon produced here are single-barrel offerings, and bottled when the whiskey is "ready." Note: This is bottled and sold in 375ml bottles.

Tasting Notes

"Lemongrass and tea are the first aromas out of the glass, followed by smoky wood and raw sawdust with a hint of buttered popcorn. The sawdust really dominates over the classic corn and vanilla notes in the bourbon. Some herbal notes back it up and the finish is dry and woody. Each barrel shows improvement and Delaware Phoenix has potential to make some excellent boutique whiskey, but this barrel was a bit too young. (Review from barrel number 21.)"
