Just in time for Father’s Day, Distillery 291 announced two new tasting room releases - 291 Colorado Straight Rye Whiskey and 291 Colorado Straight Bourbon Whiskey. Matured in deep-charred, new American white oak barrels for three years each, these limited offerings are the oldest whiskeys 291 has released to date.

“This year, these two special releases are a tribute to the two young men that do me the honor of calling me Dad,” said Michael Myers, owner and founding distiller of 291. “Our Father’s Day releases are always meaningful to us, and these straight whiskeys are a great way to commemorate the day and to acknowledge that we all get better as we get older.”

 

291 Colorado Straight Bourbon Whiskey Barrel Proof

Batch #2 - 702 bottles

------

Fruit: assorted stone fruits (apricot, nectarine, and peach cobbler)

Floral: potpourri

Spices: herbal tea, mint, black pepper

Wood: hints of cedar and aspen

The nose is full of assorted stone fruits such as apricots, nectarines, and peach cobbler, along with floral potpourri. Herbal tea, mint, and black pepper add spiciness and depth to the nose, while cedar and aspen dance around on the edges. The stone fruits are the first to greet the palate, along with the mint and herbal tea. The texture is surprisingly soft, especially given the high proof. The clove and black pepper spices quickly move in as it transitions to a lively finish with apricots, aspen, and floral notes.

 

ABV: 63.5%
