Old Elk Wheated Bourbon #580 117.1 Proof - Selected by Seelbach's
Barrel #: 5801
Mash Bill: 51/45/4
Bottle Count: 198 bottles
Tasting Notes: Golden raisins, bright cherry and orange marmalade. This bourbon goes from stewed fruits to graham cracker crust. The finish is long and pronounced. Oak, cinnamon and toffee round it hate. I hate to call anything 117 proof "crushable". But, aside from some nice heat on the finish this drinks incredibly easy.
Old Elk is a new wave of distillers. They started by sourcing from MGP. They brought on Master Distiller, Greg Metze, as a consultant. Then, Greg moved on from MGP and joined Old Elk full-time as their Master Distiller. They now have a mix of sourced and distilled products. Old Elk produces around 150 barrels a year at their Fort Collins, CO location.
