Backbone Uncut is our flagship bourbon and our first product ever launched (2010). We have done the exact same thing since batch# 1 – we bottle 10 x 53 gallon barrels at a time with minimal filtration and DON’T add a drop of water. We will let you add the water but we are firm believers that barrel proof whiskies have MORE flavor. Period. This is a central theme in our company and a guiding principle in every-thing we offer. Batches of Backbone Uncut are typically between 5 and 6 years old.
Fresh oak and vanilla fill the nose, with a rich, caramel and oak taste. This bourbon finishes very smoothly, especially given the proof, which feels decadent and warm.
