New Riff Single Barrel Bourbon is made with the same mash bill as the brand's standard bourbon release: 65% corn, 30% rye, and 5% malted barley. These single barrel releases are selected by retailers or on-premise locations. Each single barrel bottling is aged for 4 years in 53-gallon new, charred American oak barrels. Additionally, they are bottled at barrel proof without chill-filtration so expect to see variances in both flavor and proof with each barrel.

Tasting Notes

"New Riff Single Barrel Barrel Proof Bourbon combines a classic bourbon profile with the brashness of a moderately aged whiskey bottled at barrel proof. It has a light mouthfeel, but is bursting with spice and notes of vanilla, white pepper, and candied orange peel. It's a very solid value, especially given its high proof. The whiskey has ample character to stand up in cocktails and is also quite enjoyable neat."
