Rare distillation and barrel aging practices, coupled with over a decade’s rest, have produced an American Whiskey with notes of maple, vanilla, ripe apple, and a long smooth finish. The whiskey is aged 12 years and made with a mash bill of 99% corn and 1% barley. The spirit was distilled to 189 proof, barreled at 140 proof, then bottled at 92 proof from second fill barrels.
Hooten Young has partnered with former Navy SEAL, New York Times Best Selling Author, and outdoorsman, Jack Carr. Author of The Terminal List — book series turned Amazon Prime original series — Jack Carr became our right-hand support in co-creating this special 16yr reserve.
