Description

Old Medley 12 Year Kentucky Straight Bourbon

Old Medley 12 Year Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is made using a family recipe of corn, rye and barley, which is fermented with an eight-generation old yeast strain (the exact type of yeast used remains a closely guarded family secret). Following fermentation, the wash is distilled twice through a copper-pot still before being matured in new, charred American oak casks for twelve years. The intense Kentucky heat causes the wood and whiskey to mingle often, adding notes of spicy oak, cinnamon and caramel to the bourbon, which is nicely balanced by touches of toffee and semisweet chocolate. Once the bourbon has reached its peak flavor, each batch is brought to proof using pure, Kentucky limestone water before being bottled by hand.

Old Medley 12 Year Old Bourbon earned the title “Best in Show” and the Double Gold Medal at the Denver International Spirits Competition in 2013, and only 2,500 cases will be released this year.
