Wilderness Trail Bourbon
The Small Batch is the only whiskey from this distillery that isnt drawn from a single barrel, but its close enough with only 12 barrels in each batch. The mashbill includes 24% rye, and like the above reviewed bourbon, it went into the barrel at only 110 proof. The nose is savory with cracked pepper, graham cracker, and a little sweet mesquite smoke. The palate shows less youth than the wheated bourbon and is dominated by sugary fruits: orange, cherry, peach, and even a little pineapple. Underneath that, a layer of baking spice and pipe tobacco add to the complexity. Its lighter than the wheated bourbon, but in no way thin, with a long finish of dried orchard fruits and cinnamon candies.
