Garrison Brothers Cowboy Bourbon Barrel Proof (2018 Release)
Garrison Brothers // Texas, USA
The highly anticipated 2018 edition of Garrison Brothers Cowboy Bourbon is comprised of 182 barrels. Dubbed "piggy bank barrels" by master distiller Dennis Todd for their choice characteristics, they were matured for approximately five years and then dumped at the end of 2017 to rest and marry together. The result is an approximately 134-proof cask strength release with a total batch size of 4,725 bottles.
BourbonProduced anywhere in USA; Mash bill of at least 51% corn; aged in new, charred oak containers.
Cask Typenew, charred American oak
"So brown it's almost a deep purple, the 2018 Cowboy Bourbon offers a nose of cinnamon and brown sugar, with vanilla frosting and doughy bread. The palate is big and biting, with oak, cedar, and spearmint, along with charcoal and burnt caramel. Heat really comes on for a strong finish with tannic oak, medicine cabinet menthol, baking spices, and old leather. Add water or ice to showcase a richer, vanilla-forward side."
