Taconic Distillery Barrel Strength Straight Bourbon Whiskey, a Taster's Club Exclusive. This copper-colored Bourbon has a high rye mash bill (25%) with 70% corn and 5% barley. Though it’s bottled at 57.5% ABV, it still offers a sweet nose with corn and cereal grain and a heightened dose of caramel and butterscotch on the palate. In addition, the distillery added a touch of water from their natural springs to add a hint of butteriness. With a long, warm, spicy finish, you’ll enjoy each part of this sipping experience.
