Henry DuYore's Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Ransom Spirits // Oregon, USA
This is a high-rye mash bourbon (56% corn, 31% rye, 13% barley) made by Tad Seestedt at Ransom Spirits, tucked down in the hills of NW Oregon. Distilled in a 300-gallon Pruehlo alembic copper pot-still, it is aged for at least 2 years in American oak, though it does see some additional aging in French oak. It is then hand-bottled, labeled, and wax-sealed. The labeling depicts a bootlegger using the faux name Henry DuYore to hide his real identity.

"The bourbon starts off with a creamed-corn nose, hints of coriander, and strong orange peel. It’s nice and weighty with a building flavor profile with complex notes of rich toffee, toasted vanilla and baked pears. The finish has a slight smokiness that isn't overbearing and lends to the proof for a subtle, but satisfying finish. "
