Tasting Notes: The nose is like smelling an empty old fashioned glass. Notes of cocktail cherries, orange zest and a touch of oak. It's warm and inviting. We taste through a lot of whiskey but I still remember this nose a week after reviewing! There's so much going on with this palate. Warm baking spice. Cherry cobbler. Peach tea. It really just keeps on going. It's hard to claim something is extremely drinkable at 120+ proof but this is the bottle. Finish is long with some more tea and dried apricot.
Why start a bourbon company? It wasn't easy, in fact, it's very hard to launch a brand in the state of GA. Took us 10 months from idea to on shelf.
Adam, Patrick and Clinton have full-time jobs. Adam works in direct consumer sales, Patrick works in finance and Clinton works in marketing. Our backgrounds give us an opportunity to run Shortbarrel very effectively.
What's the goal of Shortbarrel? We're not going to come up with any kind of bullshit story about our grand Pappy's recipe that we found in somebody's basement. We're not going to lie. We're going to go out and keep doing what we've been doing for the last 6 years. We're going to taste stuff and if we love it, we're going to put our name on it and get to you for a fair price!
