This high-rye bourbon from One Eight is part of their experimental selection of whiskeys. One Eight Distilling finishes this sourced whiskey in a 30 year-old oloroso sherry cask for three months. Their first batch had an age statement of 8 years, while this second batch for the review was aged 9 years and bottled at 52.5% ABV. These "Untitled" releases are only available at the distillery itself or retailers and bars around the D.C. area. Unfortunately, this No.1 in the Untitled Series has already sold out.

Tasting Notes

"The first impression here is beautiful fresh plums followed by a fine cigar scent; sweet tobacco and spice. The sherry cask influences the taste in the best of ways, imparting a lovely soft and smoky flavor. The high proof is nearly undetectable. This whiskey finishes with pepper, burnt sugar, and a warmth that will bring any whiskey lover back for another glass."
