SOLD OUT: Thank you everyone that joined us today for this very special release! All of the bottles have been sold. We’ll have more distillery releases coming up this year, follow us on social media or join our email list for the latest updates.
Each year, we pay homage to our amazing team with the release of our annual Staff Selection series. The whisky was not only mashed, distilled, barreled and bottled by these very dedicated and passionate folks, but hand selected by them as well. For our 2016 edition, bottled just last month, they have elected to choose a delicious cask of our Texas single malt whisky. Originally distilled in July of 2015, this whisky was aged in American oak originally, and then finished for six months in Hungarian oak. The marrying of these two oaks delivers a complex and unique profile that is a different animal from our typical release ‘1’ Texas Single Malt, Classic Edition. Bottled at its natural cask strength and never chill filtered, it’s sure to be a whopper! Our distillers have prepared these tasting notes:
Rich brown sugar and walnuts; dried fruit notes of apple and fig, hints of oiled leather and toasty oak.
Sweet, almost syrupy impression of pralines & cream, graham cracker and burnt toffee with a nip of orange marmalade emerging to lend balance.
Dry wood spice grips the palate before revealing notes of cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg on the moderately lengthy fade.
