Rabbit Hole Bourbon Whiskey Heigold

$140.00

Heigold Kentucky Straight Bourbon is the fourth whiskey from the Louisville whiskey brand Rabbit Hole. It is a high-rye bourbon made from a mash bill of 70% corn, 5% malted barley, and 25% malted rye imported from Germany. Aged at just under 4 years in new toasted and charred American oak (char #3), it is bottled without chill-filtration at 47.5% ABV. Available in late September 2019.

Rabbit Hole Distillery has come further in five years than many come in generations. It was founded in 2014 by Kaveh Zamanian — a transplant from Chicago — who fell in love with a woman and a Whiskey at the same time. Starting as most do with sources Spirit, he made his way toward a full distillery and entertainment venue in the NuLu district of Louisville and they have a spectacular new still on the way. And things have been going so well that Pernod Ricard acquired a majority interest in June of this year (2019). And with that comes a wave of newly refined products and updated branding, naming each Spirit in their core lineup after a prominent Louisville citizen.

Released just this month (August 2019), one of their newest products is Rabbit Hole Heigold Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. And it balances on a fine point of optimal crafting. The mash bill is 70% corn, 25% malted rye, and 5% malted barley (the malting balances sweetness and spice).
