Milam & Greene Castle Hill 13 Years Batch #2 Bourbon Whiskey
The Castle Hill Series Batch Two is the second release of their limited-edition batch of 13-year-old hand-selected straight bourbon whiskies bottled at barrel proof. It celebrates the art of batching well-aged casks, one of the many methods Milam & Greene enlists to create its award-winning range of whiskies. The series is named for the historic Texas Military Institute, also known as “The Castle,” in Austin, Texas which is home to Heather Greene’s blending lab. Milam & Greene The Castle Hill Series Batch Two shines in the glass with a deep burnt amber color. On the nose it is a dichotomy of youthful vigor and aged splendor with scents of warm peach cobbler, brown sugar, and vanillas with hints of almond and milk chocolate. Bottled at cask strength of 111 proof (55.5 % ABV), this potent straight bourbon whiskey features velvety, opulent flavors of caramel, cinnamon, cherry, vanilla, and tobacco with a warming and long finish. Just 26 vintage barrels were married to create this superb whiskey, making it their most limited release. The Castle Hill Series carries the oldest age statement in the Milam & Greene family of whiskies, and each batch includes the distillery’s most exclusive casks.
