Calumet Farm 12 Year Old Single Rack Black Bourbon Whiskey - Spirits Worth Raising

Calumet Farm 12 Year Old Single Rack Black Bourbon Whiskey

Western Spirits Beverage Company is a bit of an upstart in the world of Bourbon and American Whiskey. Founded in 2008 in Bowling Green, Kentucky, they focus on a vision to build unique, innovative spirit brands. And were lucky they did. Theyve developed a tidy range of Bourbons, American Whiskies, and even Moonshine brands to fit every palate and price point.As with the vast majority of newer producers, their base spirits are sourced. But thats not completely fair in this case since they are not simply buying excess inventory and remnants. Instead, Western Spirits has partnered with The Bardstown Bourbon Company one of the newest most modern distilleries in the US that has built an exemplary reputation for itself for quality and consistency. The new partnership means that Bardstown will do the distilling to Westerns specifications. Thats a much better arrangement for quality production.Named after a famous Kentucky farm known for producing eight Kentucky Derby winners two of which that went on to with the Triple Crown Western Spirits top-of-the-line spirit brand is Calumet Bourbon. All three of Calumets signature offerings are really superior products. Calumet 12 Bourbon is what they call single rack black. That means that each small batch release is comprised of hand-selected twelve-year-old casks from a single rack of barrels in the center of the storage rick-house known to have ideal temperature and humidity characteristics for aging Bourbon.The traditional mash bill of corn, rye, and malted barley is aged in well-toasted casks with a deep #4 char accounting for the natural dark color and slight smokiness on the palate. Its also bottled at a perfect 47 percent ABV to pack in the flavor. But whatever the secret is, this Bourbon is superior from its lovely bottle to the golden mahogany color to its spot-on flavor profile.Get your bottle today!
