Due to unforeseen circumstances, 20 cases of Broken Barrel’s 2019 Single Oak Series Mizunara Whiskey was undelivered to its intended distributor early on in the pandemic. But this is where the innovative spirit of Broken Barrel founder Seth Benhaim came alive. He had just acquired two quarter cask (15G) ex-bourbon Maple Syrup Barrels around this time, inspiring him to make something brand spanking new!
Seth dumped all the Mizunara into the quarter cask, and after 21 months, a distinctly uncommon combination of flavors have morphed together into one wildly exceptional whiskey that has never been crafted before. We were lucky to get our hands on it and we are SO excited to be able to share it with you!
The whiskey boasts clear maple and sweet sugar notes on the nose, and surprisingly warm wooded flavors of cedar and an alpine taste reminiscent of tree sap. Balanced wonderfully with maple, toffee, and roasted almond flavors.
