3. Oak & Eden Wheat & Spire – Taster’s Club Selection

Oak & Eden breaks tradition in the finishing (or double barrel) process with its Wheat & Spire bourbon.

This unique expression offers flavors of fruit, wheat, custard, spice, licorice, and vanilla.

4. Four Roses Single Barrel

This complex, full-bodied, and incredibly smooth single barrel bourbon has aromas of oak, caramel, vanilla, fruit, and mint, flavors of honey, apple, vanilla, oak, and spice, and a delicate, long, and mellow finish.

Region: Kentucky | Tasting Notes: Honey, Apple, Vanilla, Oak, Spice | ABV: 50%

5. Brother’s Bond Cask Strength

This limited release of Brother’s Bond’s original cask strength expression showcases the brand’s bourbon undiluted, unfiltered, and uncut at 115.8 proof. It’s influenced only by the barrel’s qualities, the passing of time, and the artful blending of three distinctive mash bills to create a four-grain straight bourbon original cask strength whiskey. You’ll get aromas of banana, walnut, leather, rye, vanilla, and smoke, and flavors of caramel, vanilla, honey, and dried fruit.

Region: Indiana | Tasting Notes: Caramel, Vanilla, Honey, Dried Fruit | ABV: 57.57%
