Bursting with your Favorite Flavors

In the last decade or so, enthusiasts have discovered the beauty of barrel-proof whisky. Sometimes known as “cask-strength,” it’s exactly what it claims to be: whisky bottled straight from the barrel with no water added. While aging times and locations will cause fluctuations in the final reading, most barrel-proof whiskies will check in somewhere around 110 to 130 proof.

Barrel-proof whisky is packed with aroma, flavor, and especially texture, with a chewy, almost oily mouthfeel. If you typically enjoy lower-proof whisky, these might sound too hot to handle, but you always have the ability to add water to cool it down a bit.
