Bulleit Bourbon Frontier Whiskey (Queen of Kentucky #2) - Mash & Journey & Keg N Bottle Private Barrel Pick 750 ml

About This Item

 OVERVIEW

Back on April 28, 2021, Jason from The Mash and Drum took a trip to Kentucky with his mom Mary. Not only was it her first time in Kentucky, but she had no idea she would be part of a Mash and Journey Bulleit Barrel pick! Mary has become quite the bourbon drinker over the last few years and she couldn't wait to dive into the selections. With the help of Brian, Tammy, and Dustin, we selected two 11-year-old bourbons using a 20% rye mashbill that's full of complexity, balance, and spice. 

We named these picks the "Queen of Kentucky" in honor of Mary and her first pick. She loved these barrels and we hope you do too! See our tasting notes below:
