Calumet Farm 12 Year Single Rack Black Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey
Calumet Farm Single Rack Black 12 Year Old Bourbon Whiskey represents both the prestigious nature and hard-earned quality of a premium Kentucky bourbon. It is painstakingly crafted from an extremely small batch of 19 barrels. All barrels used are aged in a single, center cut rack from the ideal maturation location and conditions inside the rick house. This expression of the Calumet Farm Bourbon family is a true convergence of craftsmanship and flavor.
Warm, glowing golden amber color. Vanilla aromas with aged oak and light spice. Elaborate layers of caramel, spice and smoky wood. The finish is deep, satisfying and engaging.
In 1924, William Monroe Wright, a successful entrepreneur and owner of Calumet Baking Powder Company, established a farm on a small beautiful pasture in Lexington, Kentucky. Initially breeding and racing Standard-bred horses, it was Wright's son Warren who moved towards Thoroughbred racing. Warren would lead the farm to eight (8) Kentucky Derby winners and two (2) Triple Crown winners. It's with these high standards that Calumet Farm Bourbon Whiskey embodies the tradition and excellence of Kentucky bourbon and Thoroughbred racing.
Although Bourbon may be produced anywhere in the United States, it is most commonly associated with Bourbon County, Kentucky, where it has been produced since the late 18th century. Made from a mash bill containing at least 51% corn, the Bourbon Whiskey distillate must be aged in new, charred white oak barrels. Bourbon Whiskeys are bottled at eighty proof (40% abv) or higher and cannot contain any added color or flavor. A versatile spirit that can be sipped neat, with water or on the rocks, it also performs nicely added to cocktails like the Old Fashioned.
