These limited edition whiskeys are offered with the same mashbills as their standard bottlings, but are bottled at cask strength, each year's batch will varying slightly. This high-rye bourbon has a mashbill of 60% corn, 36% rye, and 4% malted barley. Bottled at 57.4% ABV, it matured for 10 years in new, charred American oak. 2017 marks a new look for the Barrel Proof Collection with wider, squat bottles.
- Nose: Heavy vanilla, caramel and that famous MGP seasoned wood. Baked apples with cinnamon. In the background, a faint toasted orange peel. This is a typical MGP bourbon with a touch more fruit than I normally get.
- Palate: Way sweeter than I gave it credit for. A literal dark brown sugar bomb in my mouth followed by cherry cough syrup, pine needles, herbal tea and a decent amount of toasted orange peel and grilled lemons.
- Finish: Sweet mint, a small hint of dill, Sugar Daddy Caramel Pops, and a smoldering heat that lingers like a pinch of ground black pepper.
