Whisky Jewbilee Festival Bottling 2014 (Single Cask Nation)
Blended American Whiskey
Single Cask Nation // USA
Single Cask Nation/Jewish Whisky Company is a brand owned by whisky nerds who like to stay "faithfullly dedicated" to their independent bottlings, in more ways than one! Their core line consists of single cask bottlings of single malts and American whiskeys. However, they do appreciate a good blend. This is their latest blend release, a collaboration with High West Distillery. It combines selected casks of straight rye, straight bourbon and light whiskey (ultra high proof American whiskey aged in uncharred or used barrels, a very rare category).
Blended American WhiskeyStraight whiskey(s) must comprise at least 20% of the blend with the remainder comprised of whisky of any type or a grain neutral spirit or a combination of the two.
"Considering the whoppingly high proof, it's astoundingly smooth. There are generous layers of flavor here - sweet corn, dark bread, cereal, chocolate malt, golden apples, caramel, vanilla, sweet spices, peppery spices and even a good dose of leathah. It's what a blend should be, taking the best elements of each component and allowing them to shine through."
