45th Parallel Border Small Batch Straight Bourbon Whiskey (NV)

Their process cuts no corners, beginning when they pick up grain from Rusmar farm. They then mill, mash, ferment, and distill it all within their facility. After distillation, the grain is shipped to another local farm where it is used as feed for livestock, where the livestock turn the grain into fertilizer for next year’s crops.

They distill in small batches, and are currently releasing their whiskey at four years of age, still bright and aromatic, but beginning to show the richness and layered texture and flavors that only comes in the slow evaporative time in cask.

On the nose it has lovely corn whiskey aromas, with subtle hints of dried herbs, caramelized sugar and maple syrup tones. On the palate it is rich and layered but not sweet. Medium plus in body, there is a lovely richness to the palate, with plenty of depth and warmth in the finish and body that make this a great sipper on its own or in a Julep or classic Old Fashioned.

“Enticing oak and vanilla aromas are joined by a hint of black cherry. The palate is deep and complex, opening with plenty of oak integrated with vanilla, drying espresso and cayenne heat.Adding water tames the fire, bringing out more vanilla and black cherry. Sip or mix. This should make for a fierce Old Fashioned.”
