Wathen’s Single Barrel Bourbon Whiskey
American Bourbon Whiskey | 47% ABV
Producer: Charles Medley Distillery
Aroma of caramel, vanilla, honey, violet and milk chocolate Wathen’s single barrel bourbon. Notes of caramel, coffee and butterscotch dominate the palate, and give way to touches of figs, berries and dried fruits. Warming finish that has touches of creamy vanilla, buttered bread and oaky spices.
When Thomas Medley passed away in 1940, his son R. Wathen Medley took over the family distillery, enlisting his four brothers in the process and creating a slew of highly regarded bourbon brands.
Wathen himself is widely credited as the originator of the “Single Barrel Bourbon” concept; it’s said he would cherry-pick special barrels to keep in secret at his house, serving directly from them at dinner parties and get-togethers, where many of Kentucky’s iconic distilling families would be gathered. Years later, the family created Wathen’s “Single Barrel” Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey as a tribute in his name.
Chosen blind by the family, from barrels aged between 6 and 9 years, the distinctive Medley mash bill of high-corn, high-barley, and low-rye packs rich baking spice, maturity and complexity, and a clean,dry finish into every glass; 250 years of bourbon-making tradition can be tasted in every bottle. This single barrel bourbon clocks in at 47% ABV, making it dangerously easy to mix with and just as tempting to sip straight.
