We love a themed box, and know you do too! With the month of July comes a celebration that we can’t ignore – of course we’re talking about the 4th of July, American Independence Day. The country has so much to offer in terms of whiskey (way more than just bourbon), but in this box we thought we’d spotlight some American cask finishes and oak varieties on other types of whiskies, too.
Westland American Oak: Inspired by Pacific North West beer culture, made using five different types of barley and Belgian Saison brewer’s yeast, and matured in new American oak and first-fill ex-bourbon casks. Thanks to the combination of malt varieties, yeast, and casks, it’s a rich whiskey full of chocolate, dry oak, and tart fruit.
FEW Bourbon: The flagship bourbon from the Illinois-based distillery, produced from a mash bill of 70% corn, 20% rye, and 10% malt, aged in barrels made from charred Minnesota white oak. The distillery prides itself on being grain to glass, producing all of its whiskey under its own roof.
Peerless Small Batch Rye: The first release of a whiskey distilled under the Peerless label since Prohibition, thought doesn’t go too heavy on the signature grain, so while it showcases all the hallmarks of a classic rye, with warming spices and just a touch of herbaceousness, it also allows the buttery, sweet notes from the corn in the mash bill to shine.
Jura 14 Year Old American Rye Cask: A hot-off-the-press release from Jura, this is a pretty unusual Scotch whisky, finished in casks which previously held American rye whiskey for around six months. The cask recipe imparts balanced layers of vanilla, caramel, and tropical fruit, with the rye whiskey in particular adding notes of cinnamon, chocolate, and honey.
Balvenie 12 Year Old - The Sweet Toast of American Oak: The introductory release from the Balvenie Stories series, which takes Balvenie's ex-bourbon oak aged whisky and finishes it in deeply-toasted virgin oak barrels from Kelvin Cooperage in Louisville, Kentucky.
