Smoke Wagon Straight Bourbon was released in the fall of 2019, with the goal of create an affordable everyday bourbon that had that unique and unmistakeable Smoke Wagon Flavor, consisting of delicate sweet notes with a rye spice finish. Barrels with the same high rye mash bill were racked on the top two floors of their warehouse and never rotated. The higher the floor the hotter it gets in the summer causing more expansion and more movement into the wood. This creates a bourbon that is rich and creamy beyond its years. Never rotating the barrels ensures there are no harsh tannin flavors and the high rye mash bill adds a delightfully spicy and nutty finish.
Nose: honey, toasted nuts, and with some oak and heat.
