At Amador Whiskey Company, we partner with the finest craft distillers to create limited-edition, luxury whiskies. Our 9th release was crafted by Master Distiller, Marko Karakasevic, at Charbay® Distillery in Ukiah, California. It is a unique blend of 90% malted 2-row barley whiskey and 10% hop-based whiskey distilled from a craft California IPA beer. Then it is aged for 2.5 years in French Oak and finished for 6 months in former Napa Chardonnay wine barrels. Enjoy this limited 10 Barrel release of California Whiskey brimming with complex brown spice, vanilla, dried fruit, and hop flavors.
Opening the bottle, the whiskey shows a nice integration of French Oak. The color is a classic heavy toast brown. Since the barrels used were not charred, a lot more flavors of the whiskey are available: Honey, Dried Fruit, Smokey, Vanilla from the Barrel, Roasted Barley, and Spices. The hops have meshed with the brown spices, making this a very spicy whiskey. The finish is long and coating. It shows off the distilling cuts. There is great balance.
