The whiskey ended up being made by many distilleries over time and the brand name morphed into "Old Log Cabin". To this day the Cabin shaped bottles and dozens of knock-offs command some of the highest prices in collectible Americana glass.">

- the world's first blended grain. A handsome box with some killer whisky in little mad-scientist 50ML beakers.">
It is a whisky that combines Highland single malt whiskies aged on the highest quality, new French oak, with a heavy-peated Islay single malt. And for the first time, we add to this edition of Flaming Heart a small portion of whiskies aged in sherry casks, providing added layers of richness and complexity.
In the melodramatic parlance of a rock lyric, it is a whisky born of fire, yet one with a big heart. Share and enjoy.">
SAVE WITH A THREE PACK!
64% Corn, 31.5% Rye, an 4.5% Malted Barley aged in new oak delivers a unique, sweet flavor profile that is a great sipper and a step up for that crown fanatic. Currently, this whisky is only available through a barrel program and every barrel is unique, so you won't find this splashed all over town.">

After the two year period was complete we blended most of the whiskey into our inventory but saved two barrels as "Reserve stock." We presented this unique opportunity to Ace Spirits who selected one of the two barrels.
This Hybrid barrel contains American oak, French Oak, and Eastern European Oak from Slovakia. All were charred and toasted at medium (#3) levels.
Our experience from tasting the different barrels was that the American Oak, our standard, had the highest vanillin development resulting in a more typical American sweet profile, The French and Eastern Euro Oaks were significantly drier and much higher in tannin levels. And the Hybrid did the best job of introducing more tannin, but balancing with the vanillin profile. Way higher oak flavors, but not to the point of eliminating the vanilla content compared to American Oak.
This particular barrel Hybrid 1, was one of two filled on 8/9/11. The barrel was dumped and bottled just prior to shipping to Ace Spirits in May 2015."">
