The Founder’s Reserve Rye is aged in American oak then into French Oak barrels that first contained 98-100 Cult Napa Cabernets and our Reserve Kentucky Straight Bourbon. The rye is then barrel conditioned for a second time (Double-Barrel) in the once used barrels that contained our 5-year Kentucky straight. The result is a velvety form of liquid sorcery.
Commencing with cherry oak, almond and vanilla, the middle to finish with a hint of anise, notes of woody spices and smooth smokiness lead to a warming finish. This bourbon is the benchmark of what wine rested spirits should aspire to be.
