Barrel Strength Bourbon Whiskey 750ml
Situated along the banks of the East River, Kings County Distillery is New York City's oldest operating whiskey distillery and the first distillery in New York City since Prohibition. Wedged between Williamsburg and Vinegar Hill, Colin Spoelman and David Haskell, the master distillers at Kings County, make hand-crafted bourbon and moonshine out of the 113-year old Paymaster Building at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. A typewriter the two distillers found on the sidewalk in Williamsburg is used to make the labels that adorn their clear, flask-like bottles, while a hairdryer (made by Revlon) is used to afix each bottle seal. Handwritten scrawls on a chalkboard keep track of different batches, and mesh laundry bags are used as strainers. Kings County Bourbon is made from a mash of 70% organic, cracked corn that Spoelman and Haskell source from the Finger Lakes region in Upstate New York, and 30% barley. After milling and mashing the grains, the wash is slowly fermented at their distillery in blue tanks that resemble oil drums and then double-pot distilled. Haskell and Spoelman use the first alcohol produced from each batch — the "head" — as a disinfectant and sell the used mash to a pig farmer who uses it as feed. "I still don't understand why it doesn't make the pigs drunk," Haskell says. After distilling the wash, Kings County Barrel-Strength Straight Bourbon is aged in five-gallon, charred American oak barrels upstairs at the Kings County distillery, which provides direct exposure to sunlight and encourages maximum interaction between the whiskey and the wood. This special barrel-strength bottling has been taken from some of the oldest barrels at the distillery (aged between two and four years) and is bottled at a robust 122 to 126 proof — one of the highest proofs of any American craft whiskey. As a result, Kings County Barrel-Strength Straight Bourbon has an aroma of clover honey, cornbread and spicy peppers. The palate is full of toffee, corn flakes and even coconut, and leads to a hearty finish accented by baked apples and caramel. Once the bourbon has been distilled, it is bottled, labeled and sealed by hand.

I was attracted to the insignificant structure of the jug and publicity from other neighborhood whisky devotees. The dull shading is unordinary for a whisky just 3 years of age yet this is likely because of the little barrels this whisky is matured in. More unpredictable than it is pleasant the sense of taste is uproarious floating among sweet and appetizing. The unmistakable notes of heated pear anise and orange were pleasant however loads of crazy notes like squashed wet leaves occupy from the measure. Opens up enjoyably with a little water or ice yet to an extreme and it just tastes like barrel and leaves. At first comparable and charming like Balcone's Single Malt however not exactly as organized still an intriguing pour. Fragrance: Sweetened orange caramel dates and warm calfskin Flavor: Lime get-up-and-go prepared pear earthy colored sugar scorched oak overripe apple and anise Lingering flavor: oak nectar graham and moist vegetation Body: Drug high and round

I had heard a ton about this Refinery. When I was in NY on business I chose I needed to see it and test their Distillate. I have posted audits of third different articulations ( all positive!) yet requested to have this one included on the grounds that it was exceptional and the best of the pack. Before we get to the notes a portion of the specialized subtleties! Initially it's imperative to note there is no Rye grain in the squash by any means! It's 80% natural privately sourced corn.and 20% Malted scarcely. They utilized 5 gallon Barrels to age the whiskey with a mix of 4-6 yr old juice (per the ace distiller). The outcomes are superb! On the pallette it's delicate chile cake butterscotch and Reece's! Mid pallette highlights consumed earthy colored sugar oak and tobacco. Finish is medium with oak and vanilla. It truly is a flawless pour. For a specialty Refinery it's near a showstopper! Cheers all! If you don't mind note the cost is for a 375ml jug.

I chose to add it to a visually impaired tasting of other full verification whiskeys and was shocked that it won out. Earthy colored sugar and natural product on the button with a long completion and notes of pear and cinnamon long get done with sensible consume. I trust more individuals find this one.
