Jos. A. Magnus & Co. (13 years old) "Joseph Magnus" Barrel #1360 K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Indiana Straight Bourbon Whiskey (750ml)

SKU #1449231

As the craft whisky boom continues to spread across the country, we're seeing more and more distillers begin to offer up single casks. Often that means we're looking at something young or innovative. Maybe some kind of barrel finishes or unusual mash bills designed to enhance the young whiskey prowess. Sometimes this works, other times it just doesn't. But a few smart distillers got in early enough to have secured some decent stocks of older whiskey from larger distillers. The three obvious culprits are Willett, High West and Smooth Ambler. Each have made a name blending and bottling stocks from other distillers while their own production matures. Another outfit has come online recently that's becoming a darling of the drinking cognoscenti. The Joseph Magnus Distillery has been making waves recently with their hard-to-get blends of bourbons from multiple distilleries, usually finished in various wine casks. When they offered to sell us a single cask, I was concerned as it's difficult to gauge how the wine finishes are going to turn out. But I had it all wrong. These guys were willing to bottle single casks of old whiskey from MGP at full strength without any bells or whistles. We've seen these very whiskies explode on the after-market and I was downright shocked that they'd be ready to part with the old stock. A throwback to a time when well-aged bourbon was taken for granted. Distilled just a week before our previous pair of casks on 5/20/06. 70/20/10 corn/rye/malt.

As opposed to the 1384, this really leans into the spicy side of things over the fruitier side. But nonetheless, this is transportive. Putting my nose into this glass takes me back to my old Woodshop--like freshly cut wood right off the table saw. A touch of charcoal, allspice, and plenty of vanilla round out the rest, along with a rich and decadent palate. Its rare to find wine, whisky or otherwise that have the rare quality to take you to another place--but this one definitely has it.,

Booming vanilla and wood spice leap from the glass as you pour a dram. It smells like a barrel dumping station on the day the distillery is putting together their oldest blends. Rich and impactful. The wood is sweet yet also leathery and herbal. There is abundant vanilla, cinnamon, cigar box, toffee and a touch of fresh saw dust. Molasses and caramel drip. There is a light fruitiness in the background that brightens the whole experience. A clear but far away note of apple. At 53% ABV and yielding just 164 bottles this is a concentrated example of Indiana's finest.
