Straight Edge Bourbon

no image found




An exceptionally distinctive bourbon with remarkable depth, complexity and length. Straight Edge is a blend of five-, seven- and eight-year-old bourbon from Kentucky and Tennessee. The mash bill is approximately 70 percent corn with a balance of rye and wheat. The bourbon was aged in high-end Napa Valley Cabernet barrels, which impart toasty vanilla and dried-fruit notes. The water used was from high in the hills of Alexander Valley at over 2,000 feet elevation. This property is rugged, remote and more importantly, the home to three aquifers that pump out pristine, crystal clear, idyllic water. This bourbon is aromatically intriguing with brown sugar, maple, caramelized oak, exotic spices, orange peel and campfire. The palate is velvety smooth, rich and packed with flavors of honey and intense caramel. The complexity is apparent, and the finish is persistent, long lasting and focused.
