The Fall Bourbon selections are:
Fall 2021 Single Cask #2: Watershed Ohio Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Limited to 160 bottles at 59.2% ABV (118.4 Proof).
Founded in 2010, Watershed is one of the most sought-after and beloved distilleries in the Midwest. Meticulous production methods, commitment to local ingredients, and innovations with grain have resulted in an impressive range of spirits and a devoted following statewide.
Their whiskies are rarely found outside of Ohio, especially at cask strength. Aged for 5 years in a 53-gallon new American oak barrel, this straight bourbon whiskey has a unique five-grain mashbill that includes corn, rye, spelt, malted barley, and wheat. This cask has a rich sweetness, perfectly balanced by oak spice and an orangey zing, evoking the flavors of our favorite breakfast pastries.
Fall 2021 Single Cask #3: Boulder Spirits Colorado Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Limited to 181 bottles at 69.25% ABV (138.5 Proof).
The distillery was founded by Scotsman Alastair Brogan, who brought Scottish whisky-making traditions to the Colorado Rockies, where the dry, high-elevation environment makes for bold and unique spirits. Boulder uses a traditional Forsyths Scottish still and much of its output is Colorado single malt.
Consequently, the straight bourbon whiskey from Boulder offers something unique—a very unusual high-malt mashbill: 51% corn, 44% malted barley, and 5% rye. The result, after 5 years of aging in a 53-gallon new American oak cask at over a mile in elevation, is a very big, rich, juicy straight bourbon whiskey. Hearty oak surrounds chocolate mousse, maple syrup-drenched waffles, fudge, and toffee. With a natural cask strength of 69.25%, this is a bourbon for people who love big bourbon, with a flavor profile that could only come from the mountains.
