Russell's Reserve Rye Single Barrel

Russell's Reserve Rye Single Barrel

$69.99

Eye: Light caramel. Nose: A charge of rye and baking spice followed by strong notes of pepper, dill, vanilla and citrus. Lighter notes of citrus, nuts and fruit fade in and out. It’s a wonderful rye focused nose and I enjoyed it immensely. A great cask. Palate: Heavy rye and baking spices roll across the palate, forging the path for notes of citrus, dill, dark sweets and a bit of mint to come through. Like the nose the palate is rye centric and wonderful. Finish: Long spicy fade of wood, citrus and dark sweets.

Chicken Cock Straight Bourbon

Chicken Cock Straight Bourbon

$59.99

Originally established in 1856 in Paris, Kentucky, Chicken Cock quickly became one of the larger bourbon brands of the 19th century. Forced to move production to Canada when Prohibition started, Chicken Cock was smuggled across the border in tin cans, where it rose to fame as a popular serve at some of the era’s most famous speakeasies, including the legendary Cotton Club in Harlem. At the Cotton Club, when patrons ordered a “Chicken Cock,” waiters would present the tin can tableside and ceremoniously open it to reveal the bottle of Chicken Cock Whiskey inside. Duke Ellington writes about Chicken Cock in his memoirs, referring to the “brand that was served in a tin can.” At a rumored $15 per bottle Chicken Cock wasn’t for the light of pocket, but it was a small price to pay to secure a prime table near some of the greatest musicians of the era. After prohibition, multiple attempts were made to bring “the famous old brand” back to its former glory, but shifting drinking habits caused it, along with many significant American Whiskey brands of the 19th and early 20th centuries, to disappear. It is thus with great pride that we have the honor to reintroduce to the world this once famous (and we hope soon to be famous again) brand, paying homage to its great history while embracing the future with a bold new look and flavor. 

To help provide the necessary assistance and guidance toward resurrecting this high quality whiskey and re-establishing its once famous reputation, Grain and Barrel Spirits hired the services of long time industry veteran, Gregg Snyder, as the Master Distiller and Blender for Chicken Cock Whiskey. Through Gregg's years of vast experience and knowledge, not only with making high quality whiskey, but also with making high quality whiskey barrels, Chicken Cock Whiskey is once again being recognized as one of the  best whiskies available in the world.

Distilled, aged, and bottled in Kentucky, Chicken Cock Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey has a rich, elegant mahogany hue color, a nose with a nice balance of oak tones with sweet notes of dried fruit, caramel and vanilla, and a taste which offers soft tannin upfront, which dissipates into delightful toasted oak lactones.  At 90 proof, there is a slight bourbon heat that lets you know this is a real-deal, full-bodied bourbon.  On the tongue, it evolves with a creamy, almost buttery mouth feel with sweet butterscotch notes followed by a wonderful vanilla wafer finish.  The bourbon is bottled in a prohibition-era replica of the original Chicken Cock bottle.

Jefferson's Ocean Aged at Sea 90 Proof

Jefferson's Ocean Aged at Sea 90 Proof

$79.99

The principal author of the Declaration of Independence and one of the greatest Founding Fathers, Thomas Jefferson was elected the third President of the United States in 1800. During his tenure, Jefferson authorized the purchase of the Louisiana Territory, dispatched Lewis and Clark westward in order to explore the remainder of the continent and repealed the Whisky Excise Tax. After Jefferson retired from public office in 1815, he often tended to the garden that he had cultivated on his Monticello estate. At the time, it was customary for wealthy farmers, including Jefferson, to distill the excess grains they harvested from their farms into spirits (George Washington was one of the country’s largest distillers of rye whiskey). As a result, each farmer’s spirits were unique and reflected the local terrior of their farm. Jefferson’s Ocean Aged At Sea Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey pays homage to Jefferson and the exquisite whiskey he distilled. Jefferson’s Ocean Aged At Sea Bourbon is matured in American oak casks for approximately seven to eight years on land, before the casks are placed on a ship and allowed to rest for another five to ten months at sea. At sea, the bourbon and oak casks are forced to mingle with each other as the ship rolls back and forth over the water. In addition, the temperature and barometric pressure fluctuations during the sea voyage cause the oak staves to expand and contract, and allow the bourbon to extract more of the tannins and flavor from the oak during its maturation. “This limited release whiskey aged beautifully,” says Trey Zoeller, Jefferson’s founder and master blender. As a result of this unique maturation process, Jefferson’s Ocean Bourbon has an aroma of vanilla, caramel and burnt matches. Thick notes of butterscotch, vanilla, brown sugar, and salted caramel dominate the palate, and lead to a finish accented by sweet hints of citrus.

Michter's American Whiskey

Michter's American Whiskey

$49.99

Very fruity and sweet, this whiskey from Michter's positively drips with toffee and butterscotch, enlivened by toasty notes and a hint of vanilla and dried fruit. Technically not a bourbon due to its ageing in 'bourbon-soaked' barrels as opposed to new oak.

Taking Master Larry’s instruction in hand, we put a riff on it to the tune of adding 5% malted rye, a unique twist that aids in pulling additional flavors out of the rye and adds a touch of the elegance of malted rye. New Riff Rye is splendid with a splash of water, and of course folds magnificently into classic Rye Manhattan and Old Fashioned cocktails.

Town Branch Bourbon

Town Branch Bourbon

One of bourbon's most distinctive qualities comes from the limestone water that brought bourbon to popularity in the 1800s. The name, Town Branch, commemorates the body of water that currently runs under Lexington, on which Lexington was founded. The bourbon is aged in new, charred white oak barrels. The nose is sweet with fruit and butterscotch followed by mild oak and sawdust. The sweetness stays throughout, with caramel, bananas, bread, and a mild burn.
