Barrel 29- 100% Oat Whiskey
Barrel 29 is a 2.5 year old whiskey that was barreled in an 36 gallon ‘alligator char’ Missouri Oak barrel made in Higbee, MO. It is a single barrel whiskey, filled September 27, 2013 and released April 19, 2016.
We had departed from the Missouri barrels for a while, due to an earthquake in Napa, and the subsequent shortage of wooden barrels there. Production at our barrel maker was allocated to restoring the California wineries all of a sudden. We’ve recently renewed contact and just ordered a set of four 53 gallon whiskey barrels, because everything from their barrels has been tasting so good.
For our whiskey club members, we are doing a special bottling of the whiskey at barrel strength, approximately 118 proof. This special bottling has a limited run and is filtered at room temperature only.
