Ironclad Small Batch Bourbon, distilled in Newport News, is a 90 proof bourbon made from corn, wheat and rye grown in Virginia. This product is double distilled in a copper and stainless still and then aged for more than two summers in American oak barrels. These small, charred barrels give a sweet, caramelized flavor balanced with a dry spicy finish.
