Sagamore Spirit Rye (Barrel #155 - The Streak-2,131) - Bourbon Pursuit & Keg N Bottle Private Barrel Pick 750 ml

About This Item


OVERVIEW:

On May 6th, 2021 Kenny, Ryan, Clayton & Scott got together for a virtual barrel Selection of Sagamore Spirit Rye.  Sagamore Spirit celebrates the Maryland tradition of blending Rye mashbills to create a sweeter, buttery truly one-of-a-kind Rye Whiskey.  The blends will vary, but everything Sagamore does is a blend of the below mashbills.  We think you'll be thrilled with the results.  As is sometimes the case, the team just couldn't narrow it down to a single barrel so we asked Sagamore if we could have 2.  The answer was YES.

Thanks to Dave Payne, who creates all our stickers.  A baseball fanatic, Dave has tapped into his childhood memories growing up in Maryland and has recreated the evening Baltimore Orioles hall of fame shortstop Cal Ripken Jr broke Lou Gehrig's record for most consecutive games played (2,131).  Enjoy "IRON MAN", and "THE STREAK - 2131".
