Devils River Barrel Strength Bourbon pays homage to how bourbon was originally enjoyed. When you drink barrel-proof bourbon, you’re enjoying whiskey the way the pioneers enjoyed it as bourbon was always served at full strength…straight from the barrel.
Devils River Barrel Strength Bourbon is a 117-proof whiskey. The brand is unapologetically proud of their bold flavor and recognize it isn't for the faint of heart. Devils River Barrel Strength Bourbon is a high-rye bourbon and sources its water the same way Devils River Whiskey does.
Nose: Devils River Barrel Strength Bourbon leads with distinct notes of pepper, oak and rye. It is balanced with hints of ripe apples, pears and vanilla.
Taste: A bold, smooth taste that develops on the palate. Our Barrel Strength Bourbon’s flavor is amplified with even stronger hints of oak, honey and caramel followed by some peppery spice.
Finish: Smooth and warm. It’s a bold flavored high proof bourbon that finishes clean on the back palate. Best enjoyed neat, but you can add a drop of water or a large ice cube that will melt slowly—this brings the proof down a bit and opens up the flavor.
Mash Bill: 75% corn, 21% rye, 4% barley
