115.8 proof, cask strength barrel #9408 54 bottles produced mash bill 74% Texas white corn 15% Texas red winter wheat 11% barley and no rye
The owners at Mora’s Fine W&S (that’s Carolyn and me) tasted through barrel samples with our local Garrison Brother’s rep and chose what we felt was far and away the best of the group. Our barrel was bottled uncut and unfiltered and is now available for sale at the shop.
Tasting Notes: Nose of caramel, toffee baking spice and brown sugar at first turning into intense tawny port, hazelnut, mahogony humidor and dark chocolate notes. Very rich and mouthfilling, covers the proof really well. Gorgeous aroma, palate of true bourbon “varietal character” and a long unctuous finish. This is a honey barrel!
Palate: very potent with a long finish (also like good wine) very well balanced with flavors of butterscotch, creme brulee, fig and dark chocolate flavors. Truly an amazing dram. Please note that the only Garrison brothers bourbon done at cask strength are private casks like this one and the rare Garrison Brothers Cowboy Bourbon! And most private casks are bottled at 94 proof, but not ours, no way!
