Prichard's Selections Now Available!

Benjamin Prichard's Single Malt Whiskey, 40% alcohol by volume, is barreled, aged, and hand bottled exclusively by Prichard's Distillery, Inc. in Kelso, Tennessee. Phil Prichard makes his Single Malt Whiskey in the Irish Whiskey style, uses more barley than rye to make the malt, and uses water from Teahollow Springs, a pristine water supply that also supplies the drinking water to the local area. Phil ages the whiskey in new oak barrels using a 3-millimeter alligator char, which is an aggressive char, and ages the whiskey until he feels that it is right.Tasting Notes: Benjamin Prichard's Single Malt Whiskey awakens the senses, first attracting the eye with its rich coppery color, followed by its aromatic sweet nose eliciting notes of honey, caramel, with soft toffee and butterscotch notes. A drop of water to release its potential, and the bouquets unfolds with spice notes of nutmeg, cinnamon, and allspice on the nose and palate, with honeyed sweetness, rounded toffee, vanilla, and a long, lingering finish.

 

Special select American Rye is used for this whiskey. This product is then distilled in copper pot stills and aged in small American oak barrels for the perfect balance of smoothness and flavors so desired. It has been bottled at 86 proof to achieve just the perfect taste in a Rye Whiskey. Straight out of the bottle, a pleasant aroma of field apples and light cinnamon spice approaches the nose without overpowering it.  The flavors of rich rye grains and an apple character reminiscent of calvados emerge initially, but the long finish develops into a sustained oaky vanilla experience.

 

This amazing Single Malt is $49.99, while the Rye is $47.99. Both are highly recommended!
