Manifest Whiskey Project - Single Barrel #4
Bourbonr Note: Here's my full post about this release
Bourbonr Tasting Notes: Complex and layered, with cedar, sandalwood, high chaparral sage and tobacco. Bright red cherry, toffee, white peppery nuance. Charred orange peel.
The 2016 release showcases easily one of the best American whiskey offerings; Bourbon. We stumbled across these twelve barrels of high-rye bourbon which originated at the old Seagrams facility in Lawrenceburg, IN. We purchased them as a nine-year-old bourbon where they finished aging in our facility. For the 2016 release, we teamed up with Blake Riber from Bourbonr.com to join in the adventure. Our entire team tasted through all 12 barrels and selected 5 that easily stood on their own. Those 5 are released as a single barrel bottling. The remaining 7 barrels were blended in varying degrees to make up our small batch release of this label.
