Treaty Oak Red Handed Bourbon (Kentucky, Indiana, Tennessee)
Treaty Oak // USA
Red-Handed is a sourced high-rye bourbon (60% corn, 30% rye), but what makes this a bit more unique is that they source their whiskey from three different distilleries in as many states--Kentucky, Indiana, and Tennessee. Those three whiskeys are blended in proportions chosen by Treaty Oak and re-barreled together to be additionally aged in new American barrels with a #3 char level (medium char). This additional aging is done for an additional nine months. Note: This tri-state bourbon blend has been replaced with one sourced from Kentucky and Virginia. Look for that seperate listing.
BourbonProduced anywhere in USA; Mash bill of at least 51% corn; aged in new, charred oak containers.
Cask Typenew, charred American oak
"You pick up a lot of vanilla and pecan on the nose with some pleasing wood aromas. The whiskey isn't rich, but is warming and tangy. There's a little red fruit on the palate with no harsh tannins or off-flavors. The char smoke is present, but gentle. All said, this is a solid little whiskey that is easy to drink neat and worth the trouble to seek it out. "
