15 Nov Custom Barrel Bourbon Tasting
Saturday, November 17
1 to 4pm
At the Bar
We are flush with custom whiskeys right now! Come taste three unique and awesome Merch custom barrels at the bar including a very cool Bourbon aged in Orin Swift wine barrels (making its first appearance in Missouri)!!
5 Year Savage & Cook “Burning Chair” Bourbon, Aged in Orin Swift Cellars Wine Barrels, The Wine Merchant Edition $59.99
This bourbon was born from quite a unique and fun process. First we selected our own 5 year barrel. A while later, we were provided with samples of that barrel aged in Grenache, Zinfandel, and Cabernet casks, along with a series of graduated cylinders. From there, we all sat down and played around with various ratios until we found the exact blend we loved, which is 60% Grenache, 30% Zinfandel, 10% Cabernet Barrel. The result is absolutely delicious and one of a kind.
14 Year Barrell Bourbon High Rye Cask Strength Wine Merchant Edition $89.99
To select this Bourbon, we tasted samples of nine different cask strength barrels until we found the most interesting one. It has a higher than average wheat content (unusual for bourbon), bringing a uniqueness that we found intriguing.
Buffalo Trace Wine Merchant Edition “The Mystery”
When you choose a cask of Buffalo Trace, they are selected based entirely on cask samples, with no details on aging provided until a month or two after the whiskey arrives. Hence, we’re calling it “The Mystery.”
