RABBIT HOLE BOURBON “DARERINGER” WHISKEY FINISHED IN PEDRO XIMENEZ CASK
Rabbit Hole’s 46.5% ABV PX sherry cask-finished bourbon has been dubbed Dareringer. Pronounced like Derringer, Dareringer is made with 68% corn, 18% wheat, and 14% malted barley. Rabbit Hole chose Pedro Ximenez (or “PX”) in this case, the sweetest of all Sherries, and the butts in question were used for 30 years. The whiskey’s name is a nod to Zamanian’s [owner of Rabbit Hole] wife, Heather, who first got him to drink bourbon. “The sherry cask finish is a very elegant, sweet expression of one of our bourbons,” Zamanian says. “My wife, Heather, is a Louisvillian, and equally elegant, sweet, and charming. And she’s been, in a sense, a muse for me behind the brand.
