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.

    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."">

    Read about the 25th Anniversary event here.

    In 1992, Booker Noe introduced the world to Knob Creek Bourbon - a pre-Prohibition style bourbon created to reflect the FULL FLAVOR, strength and care that defined the whiskies of that era. Honoring decades of the same care and craftsmanship, Booker's son and 7th generation master distiller Fred Noe, is proud to release Knob Creek 25th Anniversary - a limited edition, UNFILTERED, and CASK STRENGTH Single Barrel Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey personally selected to be the truest form of Knob Creek.">

    blog post for more detail! 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!">

    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.">
