James E. Pepper 1776 100 proof Bourbon

James E. Pepper 1776 100 proof Bourbon

Double Gold – 2013 San Francisco World Spirits Competition

 

This is the quintessential old school styled Bourbon but with 38% Rye content in the mash, its no surprise to see so much character from a Bourbon so reasonably priced. The distillery could have watered this bourbon down to the market standard of 80-90 proof, to make more money but instead decided to stay true its roots. The high-proof carries scents of the Rye-Spice out of the glass in a rush, while more bourbon-esque flavors of Vanilla, Honey, and Chocolate follow on the palate. A treat taken straight on the rocks, but try in this classic Mint Julep recipe to really experience a taste of the old south.
