Limestone Branch Distillery has announced the 2019 release of its annual Yellowstone Limited Edition Kentucky Straight Bourbon.
The whiskey is set to hit the market in August.
This 2019 Yellowstone Limited Edition blends barrels of nine-year and 12-year Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey.
“I tasted many quality, mature Kentucky straight bourbons in order to find the right two ages for this year’s release – I had a certain taste profile in mind and I sought those barrels that matched it,” says Steve Beam, head distiller at Limestone Branch Distillery. “The barrels I chose were in different parts of the rick house and each barrel’s unique location contributed to the taste profile and complexity of this bourbon. When combined, these extra-aged bourbons create a mature and complex bourbon with robust spice and oaky undertones.”
The 2019 Yellowstone Limited Edition brings cinnamon notes with toffee, dried fruit and a hint of citrus to the palate, the company reports, followed by a dry finish of brown sugar and oak.
Bottled at 101 proof and available in 750-ml. bottles in commemorative tubes, the 2019 Yellowstone Limited Edition retails for a suggested price of $99.99 per 750-ml. bottle.
