Rabbit Hole Heigold Straight Bourbon Whiskey Kentucky 95Pf 750MlRegular price $68.99 Save $0.00
Released August 2019, one of their newest products is Rabbit Hole Heigold Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. And it balances on a fine point of optimal crafting. The mash bill is 70% corn, 25% malted rye, and 5% malted barley (the malting balances sweetness and spice). Importantly, the Spirit goes into the barrels at 110 proof (55% ABV). This is lower than a normal "production level" proof of 120-125. It’s gentler on the casks and strikes the right balance between time and flavor — more wood influence is imparted during the four years of aging in #3 char casks. And it’s bottled at perfect 47.5% ABV.
