Two James J. Riddle Peated Bourbon Whiskey
Two James J. Riddle Spirits out of Detroit, Michigan, is known for putting out some rather unique craft whiskies. One of the more recent ones, Catcher’s Rye, we reviewed to rather mixed results earlier this year. Innovation is again striking this distillery, as they’ve just unveiled a new peated bourbon known as J. Riddle Peated Bourbon. It’s distilled from 79% Michigan corn and 21% English barley, and bottled at 91 proof.
Conceived in a city known for its gritty manufacturing, J. Riddle pairs the sweet robust flavor of corn bourbon with the elegant smokiness of single malt whisky to produce an ambrosial puzzle for your taste buds. Make sure you get your hands on this fast because juice this good is likely to disappear…dig? Distilled on-site from 79% Michigan Corn and 21% British Barley.
