Stellum Single Barrel Bourbon Cygnus A8 122.22 proof - Selected by Seelbach's
Mash Bill: 60/36/4 Corn/Rye/Malted Barley
Proof: 122.22 proof
Tasting Notes: The nose is a Cinnabon in the mall food court. It's buttery fresh baked bread with a cinnamon frosting. The palate plays on that same cinnamon note. But, it's more of a candied flavor with a little bit of black pepper. The finish is oaky but not astringent.
Stellum Bourbon Small Batch finds its flavor in the tension of three Indiana Bourbon mash bills, two of which are high-rye, with the third being almost exclusively corn. Older barrels from both Kentucky and Tennessee are folded in slowly, through a multi-step blending process. This brings added layers of depth and complexity, ultimately allowing us to round out a uniquely Stellum flavor profile. For Stellum Single barrels we were focused on finding the same depth and complexity to one barrel.
