Manifest Whiskey Project No. 2 Single Malt
Age: 2-years 6-months
Barrel: 53-gallon char #4 casks
Proof: 94 proof
Manifest sourced 2,000 gallons of Intuition Ale Works’ Underdark Stout. The Underdark was distilled on a copper hybrid pot still and put away in 53-gallon, char #4 casks. The distillers at Manifest slightly modified the grain bill used for the brewery's Underdark beer. The mash was cooked, lautered and fermented at Intuition, then distilled, aged and blended at Manifest Distilling next door. Once those barrels started to age, Manifest quickly realized this would be the second release of the Manifest Whiskey Project.
The result is an incredible American single malt whiskey!
The nose is saltwater taffy, nougat and cordial cherries carrying through on the palate with mocha, toffee and roasted cocoa.
