Penelope Bourbon Private Select "Breaking The Seel"
Penelope Bourbon Private Select is a series that explores new and unique expressions of Penelope's signature four-grain straight bourbon whiskey. For this release, we partnered with Breaking Bourbon to create a unique, private blend of bourbon. We started by selecting three barrels. Each barrel was from a different mash bill. There was a 21% rye, 45% wheat, and 99% corn.
After the barrel selection, we submitted four different blend options. After rounds of debate, we landed on a blend that was 90/5/5 21% rye, 45% wheat, and 99% corn. You can watch the full tasting here. For an in-depth review of the selection process please check out Breaking Bourbon's article.
90% - Corn/Rye/Barely 75/21/4
