Wilderness Trail: Show of Hands Private Barrel Pick “Cinnamon Sticky Buns” / Straight Single Barrel Bourbon / usa / 118 proof / 750 ml $65 (60 ct.)
We’re proud to offer our second barrel pick on Neighborhood Provisions. This pick comes from one of our absolute favorite distilleries, Wilderness Trail. As we tasted through barrel samples and landed on the one we finally selected, the moment this high-rye bourbon hit our palates we knew it was what we wanted: a lucious, almost syrupy mouthfeel, that tingled on our tongues with sparks of cinnamon and caramel. We were shocked to find the proof as high as it is - 118. Drinking this bourbon is like getting a warm Kentucky hug on a winter’s day.
Wilderness Trail was a no-brainer for us as far as barrel picks go. Their process, attention to detail, transparency, and cutting edge approach to whiskey making assures that they have some of the best whiskies on the market, in spite of their relative youth as a company. This whiskey has been in Kelvin #4 char barrels for 5 years and 5 months, which have been uniquely toasted and aged for 18 months prior to whiskey entry. This extra time allowing the wood to cure allows Wilderness Trail to produce whiskeys with complex flavor profiles that belie their age statements. This very limited bourbon is no exception. Enjoy neat or with light water dilution.
