Henry DuYore’s Straight Bourbon Whiskey

Henry Duyore's Straight Bourbon WhiskeyHenry duYore is made by Ransom Distillery. The distillery is perched in the hills of North West Oregon, where the slim line between man and nature keeps a balanced divide that reminds us of the beauty and struggle to tame the wild, and craft exceptional spirits.

Mash Bill: Corn (56%), Rye (35%), Barley (9%)
Aging : minimum 4 years, some double wooding
Cooperage : mixed Bourbon American oak (4 and 5 year old barrels) and French oak.
Wax seal, hand bottled, hand labeled.

Henry Du Yore’s Bourbon is an ultra premium American Whiskey that fits within the boundaries of the Bourbon category: a mash bill of greater than 51% corn and an aging program of at least two years in new Bourbon barrels, but with a greater than usual influence from rye and a liberal amount of barley to give greater viscosity and weight to the palate. Longer aging and a unique finishing program utilizing French oak barrels lend additional complexity to this whiskey. This distinctive blend yields a whiskey that is somewhere between Bourbon, Rye and an unpeated Single Malt. Henry du Yore’s Straight Bourbon is a whiskey that at once embodies and expands the great American whiskey category. It is a fitting tribute to the old moonshiner Henry du Yore.

Although Henry Duyore (an alias) is now completely reformed, his true identity cannot be revealed. He prefers to stay near his cabin while enjoying hunting,

Brenne Single Malt French Whisky

Brenne Single Malt WhiskyBrenne Estate Cask is a single-barrel release that is hand-crafted from seed-to-spirit in Cognac, France by a 3rd generation distiller. The two varietals of barley, which are grown in the chalk-rich soil of Cognac, are fermented more slowly at colder temperatures to extract more complexity from the grains. The wash is distilled twice in a copper alembic still and then starts the aging in lightly charred, heavily toasted new French Limousin oak barrels for a minimum of five years. It is then transferred into our distiller’s own used Cognac barrels for an average of 2 years. Brenne Estate Cask is never vatted and is proofed down to 40% abv for bottling. This creates an entirely new flavor profile to the single malt category – offering more fruit-forward and complex sugar notes. There will be very slight variations between each barrel release (individual barrel numbers are stamped on the back label) which further emphasizes the hand-crafted nature of this spirit.

Everyone here is delighted at the skill with which our malt masters have put together this vivacious new Talisker. Talisker Storm is indeed the right name for it!”

 

Tasting Notes:
Nose: Spicy, mellow smoke and a honeyed sweet maltiness with an explosion of pepper.
Palate: At first sweetly mellow and rich followed quickly by a spicy heat, like a gathering Storm. The flavour is elegantly drawn out with a balance of sweetness, smoke and salt.
Finish: Clean, warming, with a lasting aftertaste
