Yellowstone Limited Edition Charred Wine Casks
Limestone Branch Distillery has something special to share this year with their 2017 Yellowstone Limited Edition, finished in charred wine casks which will be bottled at 101 proof.
The limited edition is a combination of hand-selected 7-year and 12-year Kentucky straight bourbons, and Limestone Branch Distillery’s first available, four-year Kentucky Straight bourbon. The bourbon then rested in used charred wine casks to finish it off.
“We are beyond proud to be using some of our own distillate in this year’s Yellowstone Limited Edition,” says Steve Beam, president and distiller of Limestone Branch Distillery.
Signed by Steve Beam in commemorative tubes, Yellowstone Limited Edition offers an earthy flavor, dark and rich, with a nose of toasted oak, caramel and butterscotch at the front of the palette, giving way to rich leather and dark summer fruit on the finish.
How Many Bottles?
Approximately 7,000-8,000 bottles of this 2017 Yellowstone Limited Edition are being produced this fall at Limestone Branch Distillery, and the MSRP is $99.99.
Who is Limestone Branch Distillery?
Steve and Paul Beam have a name that goes back to the early days of bourbon. When they opened the Limestone Branch Distillery in 2011, they wanted nothing more than to honor their family heritage. As seventh-generation distillers, you should keep your eye on them in the coming years – especially now that they are starting to use their own distillate.
