Act 3, the final act, is rightfully named "Repeal Day!". The Eighteenth Amendment was repealed on December 5, 1933. After a long fought battle, the manufacturing, sale and transportation of alcohol was once again made legal. Was it because politicians missed their night cap? Or, the fact that before the Volstead Act, around 14% of federal, state, and local tax revenues came from the alcohol industry? We don't know, but we'll raise a glass either way. This last lot of barrels is easy to drink and will make you want a second pour. It highlights rich notes of dried fruit and toasted turbinado sugar.
Story: The Repeal Day Trilogy is a way to celebrate the repeal of Prohibition. Seelbach's has partnered with O.K.I Bourbon to release three lots of single barrels over 6 weeks. The final "Act" released on December 5th to celebrate Repeal Day. Each lot of barrels was tasted and selected to represent an era of Prohibition.
