Hidden Barn Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey (Jackie Zykan Blend)

After years of successfully growing the Old Forester brand, Master Blender Jackie Zykan struck out on her own with the Neeley Family Distillery in Stanford, Kentucky. Their first product, called Hidden Barn, honors the tradition of illicit stills dotting the Kentucky countryside, painted black as to avoid detection by the telltale fungus that grows black on all the buildings where distilling is taking place. Their Series 1 product is a small batch blend of 4 and 5 year old Kentucky Bourbons with a 70% corn, 20% rye, and 10% malted barley mashbill bottled at 110.1 proof. Grain and sweet oak on the nose with dark fruit. On the palate, honey and grain with a very rich, fruit and spice forward finish.
