Tasting notes: Opens with subtle charred oak, roasted nuts, hints of vanilla, caramel, and nutmeg. Mid-palate provides warm pepper spice and toasted nuts, finishing with a deeply satisfying robust sweetness in perfect combination.
Distiller's Notes: "Meticulously blended to replicate and honor the tasting notes and profile preferred by John Wayne using his original recipe from 1962 and his private collection to guide flavor and aromatics. A proprietorial mash bill of predominately American bent corn with additions of rye with sixth-row barley distilled and aged in Kentucky the old fashioned way: in small batches and aged in heavily charred new and hand built American Oak barrels. A unique blend of 88 proof, aged a minimum of 5 years in barrels hand selected for perfection. Crafted by Masters, and inspired by rare bottles unearthed and preserved for over 50 years from the collection of John Wayne."
Mash bill: 75% American dent corn, 13% Rye, 12% Sixth-row barley. Distilled and bottled in Owensboro, KY at O.Z. Tyler Distillery, KY-11. Blending and Distillation by Founder Chris Radomski and Master Distiller Jacob Call.
