Metamodernity Cask Strength Bourbon Whiskey

Long Island, New York

The treatise of Matchbook Distilling's whiskies is to bring the grain forward, to taste the NY corn or malted rye, spotlight the wonder of wood, air-dried and full of life.  First with Metamodernity, rich with nutty oats.  Then with Empire Rye, spicy and tannic from cherrywood and smoke.  And here now their first traditional bourbon mash, at cask strength, an expression of carefully crafted Kelvin barrels, 36 month air-dried, to preserve character. At 52.5% nothing added and nothing taken away.  A round and bold feature of NY dent corn and danko rye from Thor Oechsner, with a bit of malted barley from Valley Malt.  With notes of banana, pepper, brûlée, and ginger, have it neat, over ice, in a buck or out of the bottle.
