Rough Rider Bourbon

Rough Rider Bourbon 750ML    
Sku: 19861

Rough Rider is handcrafted by Long Island Spirits in a proprietary manner incorporating hand selected barrels of aged straight bourbon whisky, using local Long Island wine casks and a very unique 180 proof brandy "cask finishing wash." The bourbon starts out as a highly refined mash bill, consisting of 60% corn, 35% rye, and 5% malted barley, and is then aged for several years in charred new American white oak barrels. The wine casks that are selected for the second maturation; described by Long Island Spirits owner Richard Stabile as its exclusive method of "Reserve Aged," are chosen from the finest wineries on Long Island and are an exquisite balanced blend of award winning Merlot and Chardonnay barrels. The brandy for the "cask finishing wash" that tempers each wine barrel is also distilled from local Long Island Chardonnay. The small batch straight bourbon mellows while acquiring its distinctive character to become Rough Rider during this delicate second maturation period.

Tasting notes
Rough Rider has a deep rich amber color with a veryslight rose hue; a distinctive vanilla oak and floral nose that delivers an incredibly smooth and well rounded sweetness with complex hints of caramel and spice. The finish is savory, supple, and encored by a heady heat.
