This cask bottling, distilled in June 2006, spent eight and a half years in a first fill bourbon barrel and was then finished for eleven months in a first fill rye octave from our partners at Few Spirits.  It was then bottled at cask strength in September of 2016 at 68.95% ABV!! Cask # 305 yielded 76 bottles.

Our tasting notes are as follows:

Color: Greenish gold

Nose: Kumquat, candied orange peel, confectioner’s sugar, cream soda, sassafras leaves, wax cherry lips, walnut wood, fresh dandelion leaves

Palate: Oily entry with wood char notes, rye woodiness, red apple skins, brown lunch bags, mandarins, sour oranges

Finish: Quickly drying with brown spices, medium length with rich wood spice, candied orange peels, and red apple skins

On the label: Bright and tangy with pronounced citrus, vanilla sweetness, red apple skins, and a drying spicy woodiness

Founded in 1847, Midwest Grain Products Indiana (also known as MGP, previously known as Lawrenceburg Distillers Indiana, or LDI) is one of America's powerhouse distilleries producing spirit for multiple well-known brands. To our knowledge, no other independent bottler has ever released whiskey produced at MGP/LDI, and displayed the distillery name as the source of the whiskey.
