Smoke Wagon 12 Year Old "Private Barrel #5881" Cask Strength Indiana Straight Bourbon Whiskey (750ml)

SKU #1431724

The Nevada H&C Distilling Co., home of Smoke Wagon Bourbon, is one of the early wave craft distillers who nabbed a good contract from the excellent distillery in Lawrenceberg Indiana. 12 years later, these guys are sitting on some really top notch Straigh Bourbon, but no one seems to know anything about them. The distillery is in the heart of down town Las Vegas. They've released a range of excellent bourbons in various price points, but we're only now getting access to the very best juice. The "Private Barrel" program is one of those few hidden gems in the bourbon world. The hype around this brand is almost non-existent, but that doesn't mean their whiskey isn't excellent. There's no filtered shots of their bottles and barrels on their website. There's no marketing budget. There's just good whiskey at competitive prices. Our two barrels we both distilled on May 15th, 2007. These have kind of come out of now where but you know we'll be begging for more. This barrel was surprisingly short, just 114 bottles dumped at cask strength. Tons of caramel covered green apple, barrel spice, dried fruits and bits of leather and vintage furniture. For a high proof bourbon it drinks very easily, softer than the other lower proof barrel with sweet roasted vanilla and wild honey on the finish.

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.
