Frey Ranch Straight Bourbon Whiskey
750 ML (Standard)
The initial pour had a scent of Sour Apple Jolly Ranchers immediately.But as the dram sets for about 10 minutes, that slowly disappears and turns into some sweet cotton candy grapes.There'sa traditional scent of vanilla cupcakes as well as the softer scent of baking cinnamon.A really delicious aroma of brown sugar butter slathered on a warm piece of cornbread shows even more depth of sweetness and some of the telltale grain notes that makes up a majority of the mashbill.
The finish was pleasant and fairly long.The taste of a caramel dipped apple that you did get at a county fair was foremost while rye spice added a little bit of heat and complexity on the end.There was also the sweet heat that was reminiscent of a handful of Cinnamon Imperials candies.
Our single barrels start with Colby and our distilling team selecting a small group of special barrels from our aging warehouses that he feels have exceptional characteristics that he'd like to share with the world.From that small batch of barrels, some of our favorite shops have hand-selected barrels to call their own.We also offer our very own single barrel exclusively sold at our Tasting Room at the Ranch.Our single barrels are bottle at 'barrel strength' which means we don't add any water to proof them down.So what you're tasting is exactly how Colby tasted it when he fell in love with that Whiskey.
