Filibuster Dual Cask Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Filibuster Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is made from a mash of 75% corn, 21% rye and 4% malted barley. After the grains have been milled and mashed, they are distilled in Kentucky before being aged in virgin, American oak casks. The casks, which are crafted by hand-assembling air-dried staves and then charring the interior of the cask over an open flame, give the bourbon its signature notes of sweet caramel, creamy vanilla and honeyed oak.
After the bourbon has aged for a minimum of three years (although the average age of the bourbon is closer to eight years), it is double-barreled, or finished, in French oak casks that were previously used to mature wine. The French oak casks are more tightly grained than the American oak casks, and impart unique notes of dried fruit, honey and grapes to the bourbon. After a 60-day slumber in the French oak barrels, Filibuster Bourbon is brought to proof and each bottle is filled and labeled by hand.
Aroma of creamy vanilla, sweet caramel and nuts. Notes of honey, dried fruits, grapes complement subtle undertones of oak and black pepper. Creamy, warming vanilla finish.
