Quixotic is comprised of three barrels, all just shy of 6 years old. These straight rye whiskies were distilled and aged at Midwestern Grain Products in Indiana before being brought to California to finish the aging process. One of the three barrels was put into a freshly dumped François Frères French oak barrel, which previously held Russian River Valley pinot noir. Rather than the more common medium or medium plus toasting that wine casks receive, I chose a lightly toasted barrel that held the fruit-forward, low-tannin pinot noir grape to minimize bitterness, maximize texture, and bring out a more polished fruit profile to balance out the spiciness of the rye. To ensure the freshness of flavors, I filled it with straight rye whiskey just hours after emptying. I then took a fourth rye barrel and used it to top off the 59-gallon French oak cask and the remaining two rye casks so that the three casks were fully filled. All three casks were aged for an additional three months and then tanked together at 115.68 barrel proof where they mingled for a few additional weeks. Next, I cut it down to 101 proof and let it rest in the tank for another month before bottling on March 14, 2022.
