Shenk's Homestead Kentucky Sour Mash Whiskey (2018 Release)
From the maker:
Shenk’s Homestead Distillery Sour Mash Whiskey honors the legacy of historic American whiskey figure John Shenk, who in 1753 founded a distillery that was to become known as Michter’s in the 20th Century. It is made in Kentucky according to the traditional Sour Mash process whereby a portion of the previously distilled whiskey mash (referred to as “setback”) is added into the next batch. This full-bodied small batch whiskey is 91.2 proof.
The 2018 Shenk’s is a sour mash whiskey with a rye-forward profile. Its rich characteristics are due to a portion of the whiskey being finished in 24 month air dried French Oak Barrels that were specially toasted to add to the unique finish and rich mouthfeel of the whiskey.Image is illustration purpose only and not bottle you will receive.
