Finger Lakes Distilling holds a special place in Seelbach's history. It was one of two craft barrel picks I did under the Bourbonr name that made me think craft whiskey has promise. In August of 2018 we released our first McKenzie barrel pick. Now we're back with some of the wildest McKenzie barrels we've released so far.
First, for the traditonal bourbon drinker we have #2142. If you're looking for somewhere to start with craft distilled bourbon, this is your bottle. There are enough familiar notes for the traditional bourbon drinker. But, it incorporates some nuanced flavor from the Finger Lakes craft whiskey making process that make it unique. Next we have barrel #2103. This is a wheated rye barrel we split with Allview and Drug City (the MD Heritage guys). They know a thing or two about rye whiskey. I've dubbed this one Cherry tootsie pop. The third barrel (#2043) is a 100% malted rye. We wanted to do the under a single malt label. Unfortunately, the TTB didn't agree with our interpretation. Finally, a 7-year white corn bourbon. Barrel #1805 bright, fruity and floral. It's slightly off-profile from the McKenzie bourbon I've tried in the past. Enjoy!
