12 Foot Beard Jowl Bristle Whiskey
In 1860, the men of Pike County, Missouri set the standard for keeping your word. Due to a lost bet, one of the men grew a beard of astonishing length. As uncomfortable as his fantastic follicles were, he never wavered. It wasn't long before others followed suit, but none were as majestic or long as the 12-foot beard. It's because of this history that the makers of 12 Foot Beard understand the weight of making a promise to distill a good whiskey.
Mash Bill: 80% Corn | 15% Rye | 5% Malted Barley
Age: 5 years near Shelbyville, TN with another year of aging in Missouri for a total of 6 years of aging in re-charred barrels
Taste Profile: With a sweet front end of dried apricot and green apple, 12 Foot Beard explodes into a full-bodied delight of grain, caramel, tannin, and a touch of black tea. With a finish of cloves, other spices, and the smallest 90 proof burn, this whiskey has character, just like the bearded men of Pike County so many years ago.
