Wilderness Trail High Rye Bourbon (Barrel S-A16-F9 "Chad'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.

Chad's Variant:Barrel S-A16-F9, LOT# 042517-BR21-3, Barrel FIll date - 04/28/17, Proof 115

  • Nose - Brownie edges, caramel, and rich barrel notes with hints of dark stone fruit and black pepper
  • Palate - Reminiscent of a double oaked bourbon with notes of chocolate and toasted oak
  • Mouthfeel - Oily/creamy
  • Finish - A long, lingering finish with a big KY hug

Tip: These would be excellent for food pairings; try Sara's variant with an appetizer or charcuterie board and Chad's variant with dessert!
