Wolves // USA
Wolves Whiskey is a California whiskey brand launched by James Bond and Jon Buscemi. They sought out renowned master distiller Marko Karakasevic of Charbay Distillery in Mendocino County to produce First Run. The whiskey is a blend of three whiskeys. The first was double-distilled from a stout beer and aged in French oak for 8 years. The second was a pilsner beer double-distilled and aged in new American oak for 5 years. Lastly, a sourced rye from Indiana is added to the blend. Wolves First Run is bottled at 106 proof and the only 898 bottles are available.

"Milk chocolate leads the way on an otherwise herbal nose. The palate is zesty and herbal, with malted milk balls, toasted rye bread, and towards the back, black pepper. Hoppy on the finish with lemon peel and orange zest atop tannic, spicy oak. Intriguing though flavors are a bit jumbled. Add water to bring out baking spices on the nose and a chili pepper note on the palate; add ice to up the chocolate to a larger degree."
