The Blaum Brothers opened their Illinois distillery in 2013. Their first bourbon came out in 2018: a mash bill of 72% corn, 23% rye, 5% barley. A single distillation with an emphasis on “funkier, heavier, dirtier” tail cuts, aged for at least three years in char #4 53-gallon oak barrels.
To the nose it develops intense nutty notes, with pecan standing out, together with caramel and maple syrup and a touch of balsamic herbs. To the palate it is honeyed and it delivers rich woody and spicy notes. The persistence is medium long, confirming wood and spices.
