Smoke Wagon Straight Bourbon Whiskey is the Double Gold Winner at the 2020 San Francisco World Spirits Competition!
Smoke wagon straight bourbon whiskey. The goal was to develop an affordable daily bourbon with that distinct and identifiable Smoke Wagon flavor, consisting of delicate sweet notes with a rye spice finish, which was just introduced in the fall of 2019. Barrels with our same high rye mash bill were stacked on the warehouse’s top two floors and never circulated.
In the summer, the higher the floor, the hotter it gets, creating more expansion and movement in the wood. Because we don’t cold filter our bourbon, the combination of these factors results in a bourbon that is rich and creamy well beyond its years. The high rye mash bill creates a deliciously spicy and nutty finish, and the barrels are never rotated to ensure there are no harsh tannin flavors. smoke wagon straight bourbon whiskey
Honey, toasted almonds, oak, and fire on the nose.
Taste: Creamy texture with rich sweet honey and caramel aromas at the tip of the tongue, followed by nuts, oak, and pepper spiciness on the sides of the tongue. The nuttiness and oak fade away as the rye’s pepper spiciness takes over your palate. Finishes with a creamy richness that coats the palate, followed by oak and lingering pepper spice.
