American Whiskey | Bourbon Whiskey
Old Elk Blended Straight Bourbon Whiskey's recipe includes three quality ingredients – malted barley, rye, and corn. The bourbon generates sweet, light components by investing in this bourbon and using four times more malted barley than traditional recipes. The malted barley, combined with the spicy essence of clove from the rye, and the traditional rich bourbon character from the corn, creates the overall robust taste profile. The Slow Cut proofing process used for Old Elk Bourbon enhances the bourbon's flavors through a patient process where full barrel proof bourbon is cut, left to rest, and the process is repeated. While traditional proofing takes 24-48 hours, this slow cutting technique, developed over several test periods, takes significantly longer. This intentional period allows the flavors to marry between stages, until the exact character achieved, creating an overall smoother bourbon whiskey. This bourbon offers aromas of sweet vanilla and caramel, clove spice, slight maple, and nutty almond. It has flavors of maple syrup, almond, raw bran, chocolate, deep wood, and coconut. The mouthfeel is smooth and coating with a lasting aftertaste. Enjoy!
