Tommyrotter Distillery Napa Valley Heritage Cask Straight Bourbon Whiskey
FINISHED IN TAUB FAMILY SELECTIONS’ NAPA VALLEY CABERNET SAUVIGNON CASKS.
This delicious spirit is comprised of three separate, straight bourbons from Indiana, including a high corn bourbon, a high wheat bourbon and a high rye bourbon. A fine collection of bourbons, the final straight bourbon is finished in Taub Family Selections’ Heritance Cabernet Sauvignon French oak barrels from Rutherford, Napa Valley, California for 3 months. Non-chill filtered, then bottled at 95 proof, the result is an overproof bourbon consisting of corn, wheat, rye and malted barley.
Long before Tommyrotter Distillery opened its doors, the founders sought out and purchased bourbon whiskey for a future special release to herald the distillery’s foray into brown spirits. This project is the product of that foresight.
Aged in offsite warehouses in Indiana, the whiskey was shipped in barrel to the Tommyrotter facility in Buffalo, NY. In the months prior to the bourbon’s arrival in Western New York, the founders sought Cabernet Sauvignon barrels from the most renowned vineyards in Napa Valley and transported them to Buffalo.

Get ready to mix Manhattans with this limited release whiskey, distilled in Indiana and finished in Buffalo, NY in "freshly emptied" barrels used to make Heritance George III Cabernet Sauvignon. The overall impact is subtle, with a drying core that shows leather and oak accented with hints of cinnamon and clove. A rounded brandied cherry note emerges on the -finish.
