It is bottled using the distillery's OBSK recipe which uses a mash bill that has a higher rye content for a bourbon (60% corn, 35% rye, 5% malted barley) and also a yeast strain that highlights a spicy, full bodied whiskey. Variations may occur as is the nature of single barrel bourbons. The bottle that was tasted was from warehouse B5 and Barrel No. 3-3B. It was bottled at 59.8% and was aged for 13 years.

Tasting Notes

"Hot on the nose with hints of rye bread, maple and peppermint. Coming in at barrel proof this whiskey does well with a touch of water to open up the aromas. Touches of lemon rind, green fig and nutmeg come through once opened. On the palate, chocolate, peppermint and maple are followed by a mild and ripe stone-fruit characteristic. The finish is long with woody notes and baking spices lingering throughout. "
