Rieger's Straight Bourbon Whiskey Bottled-in-Bond
As a bottled in bond spirit, this bourbon is held to a rigorous standard including being made by one distiller at a single distillery in one season. At J. Rieger & Co., Kansas City’s Original Distillery, that results in a unique expression of the company's location in the historic Electric Park District – the varied seasons, the aged barrels, even the vibrations of the trains passing by their front doors.
Distilled from corn, rye, and malted barley, this bourbon has aged six years in a rickhouse, and is the second offering of Rieger’s Straight Bourbon Whiskey Bottled in Bond since J. Rieger & Co. was reborn in 2014.
Aromas of tart fruits upfront - lemon oil, apple pie, clove, and hints of maple. Flavors on the pallet led by sweet fruit including dark cherry and plum. A very rich, elegant, and buttery texture with flavors of cigar smoke, cornbread, and cotton candy. The finish is loaded with complex flavors of honey-cinnamon, dark-roast coffee, vanilla, caramel, and sea salt. There's a rich, malty, lingering effect that is reminiscent of a stout beer.
