When it comes to making a distinctive bourbon, a high percentage of rye in the mash is a great start. And this one is only 56% corn with 38% rye (and the last 6% barley), which makes it one of the highest rye-content bourbons out there.
All this rye adds delicious spicy notes to bourbon's sweet and oaky flavors, though this bottle is less sweet than the average.
And then there’s the Rocky Mountain snowmelt they use to bring it to the right proof – that is, to have a desirable alcohol content with all the warmth and none of the fire. The water's natural minerals enhance the mouth-feel for a creamy texture we just can't get enough of.
