Redwood Empire Bottled in Bond Grizzly Beast Straight Bourbon Whiskey – Batch No. 002


Mash bill: 66% Corn 23% Rye 7% Wheat 4% Barley


Straight Bourbon whiskey, aged five years in 53-gallon American White Oak barrels, primarily toasted and charred to level 3. This release maintains the 4-grain mash bill, with an increase in the percentage of wheat.  Overall, aromas of charred sugar, cherry cola, and reduced red currants open into a rich, full mouth of molasses, almond brittle, and lemon bar. Grizzly Beast gets its name from two giants: Grizzly Giant, a giant Sequoia in Yosemite National Park, and Mattole Beast, a massive 375-foot coastal redwood in Humboldt Redwoods State Park.
