This bourbon is smooth and drinkable, with just enough spice to balance out the caramel and vanilla. It's a pretty mature bourbon (aged for 2.5 years) from such a young distillery. Based in Columbus, Ohio, Watershed released the very first bottling in November, 2012.
While bourbon must be made from at least 51% corn, you can use any other grain for the rest. Watershed is one of the distilleries experimenting with alternatives, pushing the boundaries of what great bourbon tastes like. This one is made with 60% corn, with the traditional addition of wheat and rye, plus the very unusual addition of 5% spelt.
So why the spelt? Well, Ohio grows about 10 times more acres of the grain than any other state in the country, so this is a great example of local agriculture influencing distinct flavors in classic whiskey.
Take a nod from the Buckeye State and sip this bourbon alongside sweet buckeye candy (our Midwesterners say that's chocolate-dipped peanut butter bites).
