Overproof & Cask Strength Whiskey

Bottled in Bond, Cask Strength, Barrel Proof, if the bottle is over 49% ABV, we park it here. As Pappy Van Winkle famously said, "why ship all that water across the country!" We couldn't agree more. Overproof whiskey allows you to get the truest sense of the spirit and gives you the flexibility to add water (or not) to bring your whiskey to a desired proof.

    Perfection is a patient man’s game. So we waited until Angel’s Envy reached the perfect level of maturity. We judge only a handful of barrels exceptional enough for our lengthy finishing process. The result? Even at 124.5 proof, every sip is worth savoring.

    A remarkably complex and unfiltered spirit, we suggest you enjoy it neat or with just a splash of water to release the flavor nuances, and perhaps with a few friends who appreciate outstanding whiskey. Angel’s Envy Cask Strength was worth waiting for, now it’s worth sharing.

    Appearance: Rich gold with an amber depth

    Nose: Oak, Tea Leaves, Smoke, Leather, Fresh Herbs

    Palate: Green Apple, Queen Anne Cherries, Citrus Peel, Rock Candy

    AT EACH BOTTLING we’ll remove a portion of that whiskey and replace it with other barrels that will complement the remaining blend. We'll then repeat the process - bottling a portion and adding newly selected whiskeys each time.

    Barrell Bourbon Infinite Barrel Project


    by referring to the bottling date on the front label and going to that page on our site.


    The Infinite Barrel contains fractions of many whiskey barrels in a single blend, while a solera ends up with fractions of the original whiskey in many barrels. Our objective is to create a unique blend for every bottling. The solera process, however, is designed to create a consistent product every time.

    At its most basic, the solera process starts with a single barrel or group of barrels of a specific age. A fraction of the first group of barrels is put it in the second group of barrels, a fraction of that second group is put in the third group and so on. The solera process is designed and symmetrical. We think of our Infinite Barrel Project as a solera in reverse. It's unpredictable and asymmetrical, constantly evolving - even whimsical. We're certainly having fun blending it.">

    On the nose, there is an immediate aroma of fresh multi-grain baked bread and ripened nougat. The midpalate mouthfeel is rounded out with semi-sweet flavors of grilled pineapple and candied walnuts. On the finish, you will find a perfect balance of sweet and savory with cooked peaches and steeped tobacco.">

    The road to Noe Simple Task started when I visited our Canadian distilleries in early 2017. I enjoy travelling to different places in the world to see how they distill their spirits. There, I was able to taste some great Canadian whisky straight out of the barrel. I was really drawn to the fruit and floral notes they achieve. I wanted to know more.

    Later in the year I went back for a deeper dive to learn all about their process. And taste some more great whisky. This was a step outside my comfort zone. The rules and laws for making whiskey in Kentucky that I grew up with don’t apply up there. But I came back inspired and began blending.

    Now, while the flavors of the Canadian whisky had piqued my interest, my heart still lies in Kentucky. So I was excited about the idea of bringing the best of both worlds together. Knowing I wanted to blend with Kentucky Straight Rye, I started experimenting with different Canadian whiskies, trying to pull in those fruity and floral notes. They use a lot of different barrels to age up there, so I was able to play around with a lot of different flavors. I was looking for something that would round out the blend and really showcase the nuances of both the American and Canadian whiskies. In the end, I found the 40-year-old whisky and 13-year-old rye helped me achieve exactly what I wanted—a truly balanced and refined whiskey with a nice, lingering finish that’s full of flavor.

    Stave Configuration: (0-P2, 0-CU, 10-46, 0-MO, 0-SP)

    Maker's 46 is created by taking fully matured Maker's Mark bourbon and placing it in a barrel with ten charred wooden staves (all 46) in it to create more wood influence, more caramel, more... YUM. The whisky is then aged in these modified barrels for an additional three months to maximize the flavor impact of the staves. We love Maker's 46 and so when the opportunity arose to create our own private barrel, we jumped at it. Here's how it works:

    in 2017, the folks at Maker's worked with Independent Stave (one of the largest cooperages in the world) to create four new stave types to add to the existing Maker's 46 stave, for a total of five possible staves to fill ten stave positions:

    Baked American Pure 2 (P2)

    Seared French Cuvee (CU)

    Maker's 46 (46)

    Roasted French Mocha (MO)

    Toasted French Spice (SP)

    By arranging these staves in different configurations, you could develop up to 1,001 different whisky variants. We've done a few of these Private Select barrels, and we've been able to craft dramatically different whiskies using different stave configurations.

    During a lunch break on our first trip, I saw a bottle of Maker's 46 Cask Strength for sale in the gift shop and inquired- would it be possible to make a barrel using ONLY the Maker’s 46 staves? Since it was to be bottled at barrel proof, this would essentially be Maker’s Mark 46 Cask Strength Bourbon!!!??? The answer was yes. In fact, at the time, that gift shop bottling was the only way you could get Maker's 46 Cask Strength- a distillery only release made at the direction of Bill Samuels Jr. himself!

    I'm pleased to offer you, for the first time outside of the distillery, Maker's Mark Cask Strength!">

    This is the newest in a line of outstanding innovative whiskies created by Eddie Russell. In the past several years, Eddie has released some of the oldest Bourbons to come out of Wild Turkey warehouses, a feat that speaks volumes about his skills as Master Distiller. Eddie, a 37-year industry veteran, has mastered the craft of small-batch Bourbon.

    Made from a mingling of whiskies aged 15 years, Russell’s Reserve 2002 is a 114.6 barrel proof Kentucky Straight Bourbon. It has a nose of stone fruits, pear, citrus, oak and a hint of white pepper. It features notes of grapefruit, white chocolate and gentle spice with a finish that is long and malty with notes of cream, banana and coconut.">

    The Flavor

    We sampled many barrels of bourbon to look for the flavors that would combine to make an excellent blend.

    From the older Kentucky barrels the flavors of caramel, leather, and wood, with a touch of rose become prevalent.

    From Indiana barrels the flavors of soft cherry, a nice mid palette feel and a touch of floral are found.

    From Tennessee bourbon notes of caramel, vanilla, and ripe banana are gained.

    The Colorado bourbons bring spice such as cinnamon which are found from the bloody butcher corn, and honeysuckle from the Olathe region sweet corn.">
