This whiskey is named for William "Bat" Masterson, "an Old West marshal, gambler, newspaperman and boxing promoter" - someone who always looked to new trends. Wheat usually plays a supporting role in other whiskeys, but is the main attraction here. This one uses Canadian wheat and local glacier water, aged in new oak for 12 years.

Tasting Notes

"Considering the age and that it's named for a boxing promoter, among other things, it lacks a little punch. It's heavy on the sweet side - vanilla, butterscotch, caramel, milk chocolate, red apples, ripe pears and a bit of banana. Some sweet spice and toasted oak round out the finish. For those who enjoy a sweeter style of whiskey, this is for you."
