Shippingport Bourbon Whiskey is a blend of small-batch barrels, like many of those early recipes, to enjoy the same flavor that our ancestors enjoyed during the foundation of our nation. Mash bills vary, as the barrels are coming 4-5 different distilleries. However, Whiskey Row barrels will always be blended in (Corn, Rye, Wheat, Malted Barley). All distilleries have their propriety yeast and grain recipes. While rye is usually the dominant secondary grain, sometimes wheat is more prevalent. Every batch is different, and the color of the strip stamp is based on batch number and blend of bourbon.
Tasting Notes: This bourbon has brown spice, smoke, leather, and rye bread flavors courtesy of its corn mash and aging in new charred oak barrels.
