The Forge is our most ambitious project yet. It's a combination of 3 different whiskies aged between 5 and 14 years old, and bottled at a high proof. Straight bourbon makes up a majority of the blend where we have selected some of our best barrels between 5 and 7 years old. This blend also includes some older Straight Rye (8 yrs+) and some Light Whiskey (14 yrs+). The Forge is a rich and decadent blend that is sure to be a crowd pleaser. We believe The Forge represents some our best blending work yet.
Backbone “Prime” is a tribute to batch 1 of Backbone “Uncut”, our first release of barrel-strength bourbon. That batch was rich and full with less barrel influence “Prime” is a combination of different aged bourbons that are blended at a high proof to provide consistency of flavor.
The proof of Prime stands tall in tribute to the extra flavor found in higher proof offerings. It was created for the serious bourbon drinker, but we believe it will also appeal to adventurous newcomers to the great world of American craft spirits.
