Proof & Wood, Deadwood Straight Bourbon

$26.00 Excl. tax
EAN Code:
609788231271

A young, niicely done spirit from a production standpoint, and light years better than most commercial “Moonshine”. It does show and taste the 6 months or so aging. The sweetness is nicely offset by the wood and char notes.

Another new spirit from Proof and Wood Ventures. These are the people who brought us the Redemption Rye, Redemption Bourbon, and later sold of the brand to the Deutsch Family.

Being gluttons for punishment they got back into this business again with this line, including a Deadwood Rye Whiskey, and also Ambassador 12 Year Old Bourbon and The Funk Jamaican Pot Still Rum.

The concept behind the Deadwood series is a  frontier type of whiskey that is meant to drunk when it is young and fresh with the minimal type of aging it would have received by being transported to the Western Frontier from the Eastern part of the United States back in the day. The whiskeys in this case is a mix of Indiana and Tennesee sourced whiskey aged at least 6 months in full sized (53 gallon) wood barrels. This distinction is drawn because there is a lot of young craft whiskeys aged in smaller barrels that are being released in the craft community, and even though they can be roughly the same age as these whiskeys, the smaller barrels make a huge difference ( and not necessarily in a good way. You will also find these whiskeys much cheaper!

Speaking of which, these whiskeys are priced in the $20 rage – making them cheaper than most of the big production value whiskeys and they have a fair amount of young whiskey charm.

Appearance: Clear, yellow gold on the bottle. pale gold in the glass. Thin coat on swirling, with some thin legs and droplets.

First Impression: Oak, corn some sweet and sour rye notes and alcohol, slightly sweet smell to it.

Taste:  A young, niicely done spirit from a production standpoint, and light years better than most commercial “Moonshine”. It does show and taste the 6 months or so aging. The sweetness is nicely offset by the wood and char notes.
