Taconic Distillery Double Barrel Maple Straight Bourbon Whiskey
This unique double-barrel bourbon produces just a hint of maple syrup sweetness. The result is a slightly sweet buttery flavor that is unmistakable. You can drink this bourbon nice and neat or drawn up in your favorite cold-weather cocktail. Comes in two expressions: 90 Proof and 115 Proof (cask strength).
Fun fact: Double Barrel Maple Bourbon Whiskey is the product of a relationship with Catskill Mountain Sugarhouse. Guys at Taconic empty their Bourbon barrels then send them to Catskill Mountain Sugarhouse who fills them with their delicious maple syrup. After a few months of aging, they bottle the barrel-aged maple syrup. Taconic Distillery then immediately refills those same barrels with bourbon. This sweet and floral whiskey spends another few months in the barrels to become the annual release of Double Barrel Bourbon Whiskey with Maple Syrup.
