Our inaugural Whisky Jewbilee Chicago festival bottling is an 8yo American Light Whiskey distilled and matured at LDI/MGP (aka the old Seagram's distillery). It was further matured in a rye cask that was used to mature beer from the Shmaltz Brewing Company.
Even more information: This light whiskey was extra matured in a cask that previously held the 6yo LDI/MGP rye whiskey (which was part of the 2nd Whisky Jewbilee NYC festival bottling) which was used to mature Shmaltz Hop Manna IPA for the first collaboration beer bottled in celebration of Whisky Jewbilee NYC 2015. It's like a paradox wrapped in a conundrum.
225 bottles were filled at 65.1% ABV and each one is available for $85.
Color - Deep honey
On the nose - Toasted waffles dripping with heavy orange syrup, light citrus hop note and pine sap with fresh rye bread and caraway seeds framed by soft oaky tones
Flavors on the mouth - Oily entry with a chewy rye bread note, a hint of fresh citra hops, orange creamsicle, cracked black pepper, nutmeg, and a citrus pixie stick sweetness
Finish - A lasting umami-like saltiness as toasted caraway seeds and notes of orange cake transition to soft oak
It's well worth the journey!
Slainte & l'chaim,
The Whisky Jewbilee guys
