Kentucky- Collaboration with Steve Beam, very limited allocated new brand launching April 2017. Only 5,000 cases available. 2 years straight Rye with Sherry cask finish which gives it a smooth mouthfeel and unusual notes of dark fruits and spices. Minor Case Sherry Cask is a Two-Year-Old Straight Rye Whiskey with a sherry cask finish which gives it a smooth mouthfeel, and intriguing notes such as dark fruits & spices. This whiskey takes its name from Minor Case Beam.

From Limestone Branch Distillery: “In our release, Minor Case Whiskey, we explore what might have been if the talent-fueled M. C. Beam had the opportunity to have his stills unsilenced and his production reawakened through prohibition. With this product we raise a glass in tribute to Minor Case; the man, the unrepentant passion, and the product he sought to create. We’d like to think he would be proud of what we’ve been up to, and we hope you are too.

The Minor Case Sherry Cask asserts itself right up front, with orange oil, sweet figs, cloves, and cedar; aromas of grape candy, peonies, spearmint, and allspice appear as well. While this is unabashedly rye, with flavors of cinnamon, black pepper, and oak, the sherry comes to the fore again in the guise of grape soda, sweet cherries, and chocolate. The finish is sweet and oak-driven, with good length.

Palate:

Like the aromas, the sip is also soft on entry, with cherry, raisin, and caramelized sugary notes first. A touch of rye spice along with an almost port-like flavor round out the backend. Being finished rye, the sherry cask finish seems to become more evident here. It’s gentle and easy to drink, with a well-rounded and nicely integrated flavor profile.

Nose:

The aroma is soft on entry, but there’s a lot going on. Sweet summer fruits, floral notes, and a hint of rye spice are most prominent. It has a familiar MGP rye nose, but with additional complexity brought by the fruit and floral notes. It’s enjoyable and well developed.

History:

Limestone Branch Distillery introduced Minor Case Rye in February 2017. The whiskey was inspired by Limestone Branch founders Steve and Paul Beam’s great-grandfather, Minor Case Beam. Minor Case Beam operated a distillery prior to prohibition but passed away shortly after its repeal. He made rye whiskey during his pre-prohibition days, and it was his specialty. This rye was inspired by him and meant to pay tribute to his distilling legacy. Incidentally, this whiskey’s mash bill shares the same 51% rye component as Beam family recipes dating back to the 1930s.
