Old Trestle Sierra Bourbon 750ml
We are excited to have a hand-made Bourbon, made here in California! Old Trestle Sierra Bourbon is the distillery set up by the owners of 50/50 Brewery in Truckee. Of note, Sierra Bourbon is a high rye bourbon. 21% Rye on the Mash Bill. This is a three-year bourbon that is then age for 6-8 months in a new, charred American Oak Barrel. This additional time at altitude, in a second barrel, brings an intensity to the flavor and profile that [resents a bourbon with depth and flavor beyond its young age.
Old Trestle Sierra Bourbon is known the world over as the quintessential American spirit. Our Sierra Bourbon is a nod to the intrepid settlers that brought our country westward – embodying the spirit of the trailblazers before us. The intensity and bold nature of our forefathers are encapsulated in our double-barreled Sierra Bourbon.
Style/Description: Our Sierra Bourbon is a full-bodied, intense, and bold expression. Bourbon is made from corn, rye, and barley, aged in brand new American White Oak. We age our bourbon here in Truckee, California, at 5,982 feet of elevation. We finish our bourbon by transferring it to a second new American Oak barrel, intensifying the oak and deepening the flavor 6-8 months prior to bottling.
The sweetness from the corn comes through with hints of honey, caramel, and vanilla. The oak backbone shines through to balance the sweetness.
Sweet notes (cereal, corn, brown sugar), balanced by the rye spice (black peppercorn, coffee), and intense barrel character (tannin, vanilla, dark fruit/cherry, pecan).
Smooth and finishes a bit on the dry side.
