Backbone Bourbon The Forge Blended Bourbon Whiskey (750 ml)

About This Item

Backbone “The Forge” is blended bourbon where at least 51% or more of the blend is Straight Bourbon. We spent several months coming up with the blend. Our starting point was simple – how could we use our older barrels of whiskey to create something that was outstanding and stood apart from other high-end American whiskeys. The bulk of the blend is some of our best Straight Bourbon barrels between 5 & 7 years old. We also included some older Straight Rye and some wonderful barrels of Light Whiskey that were barreled in 2006. The right combination of these mature whiskeys including a stout proof of 110 allowed us to create a rich and decadent blend.

Tasting Notes: 

Sweet nose that reminds one of walking in sugar cane field. There is also some slight oak on the nose. The entry palate is cool and narrow but soon widens as it hits the mid-palate. Here the whiskey drops and lifts but also expands to provide a very full bodied, big flavor profile. More nuanced flavors emerge on the back palate. Here there are notes of honey and caramel but also some dark fruit undertones and just a hint of nutmeg. This whiskey provides great balance between power and sweetness. Both keep the other in check. The finish is very long and warm. Very satisfying…
