Wilderness Trail High Rye Bourbon (Barrel S-A16-F7 "Sara's Variant") - It's Bourbon Night & Keg N Bottle Private Barrel Pick 750 ml

About This Item


OVERVIEW:

On May 28th, 2021 Chad, Sara and fellow Patreon members Iverson, James, and Maasak met in person at the Wilderness Trail Distillery in beautiful Danville for a barrel pick of the High Rye Bourbon.  The selection process at Wilderness Trail is a true experience, and is especially memorable, hosted by the "Bourbon Buddha" Macaulay Minton.  Well, towards the end of the selection the team was stuck and placed a call to Keg N Bottle to ask if they could take 2 barrels as they just couldn't break the tie.  We give you the Chad & Sara Variant selections.  ENJOY.


Sara's Variant: Barrel S-A16-F7, LOT# 042517-BR21-5, Barrel Fill date - 04/28/17, Proof 116.
  • Nose - Bright citrus and herbal/floral notes with a hint of savory spice
  • Palate - A balance of sweet and savory, like honey BBQ, with notes of herbal tea and citrus
  • Mouthfeel - Oily
  • Finish - A medium-long finish that continues the play between savory & sweet
Tip: These would be excellent for food pairings; try Sara's variant with an appetizer or charcuterie board and Chad's variant with dessert!
