It began when I designated an older stock of the same wheated bourbon used to make our coveted Dareringer Bourbon. It was aged in our signature toasted and charred new American Oak barrels. Toasting the barrel over a natural wood fire at a lower temperature slows the barrel-making process but yields a bourbon of unequaled complexity and flavor."
Founder & Whiskey Maker
Tawny and auburn colors highlight Dareringer’s strong character while fragrances of custard, walnut, sherry, and brown sugar raise expectations. On the palate, it delivers a very smooth pleasing mouthfeel balanced with cinnamon, tobacco, oak, caramel, blackcurrant, lemon and cherry, which culminate to a medium to long clean finish with wine, toffee, and toasted pecans.
Wheated Bourbon Finished in PX Sherry Casks at Cask Strength
This super-premium Straight Bourbon Whiskey is carefully crafted by taking fine wheated bourbon aged in alligator char barrels and resting it in hand-made Pedro Ximenez Sherry Casks from Spain's renown Casknolia Cooperage. We then intimately blend no more than fifteen barrels to produce our desired flavor profile - a true small batch. Every step we take in our whiskey-making process is intentional. When a spirit is made with this kind of love there's nothing to hide, so we forgo any chill filtering – providing you with the most authentic barrel to bottle flavor in the market – at cask strength.
