Limestone Branch Distillery tells BourbonBlog.com they have released the 2017 version of Yellowstone Limited Edition Kentucky Straight Bourbon, finished in charred wine casks.
Approximately 7,000-8,000 bottles of Yellowstone Limited Edition 2017 are being produced this fall at Limestone Branch Distillery, and the suggested retail price is $99.99 / 750 ml bottle.
This year’s limited edition combines hand-selected, 7 and 12-year-old Kentucky Straight bourbons, with a special addition of Limestone Branch Distillery’s first available, 4-year-old Kentucky Straight bourbon. The bourbon
is then rested in once-filled, double seasoned barrels, which are toasted and then lightly charred.
“We are beyond proud to be using some of our own distillate in this year’s Yellowstone Limited Edition,” Steve Beam, President, and Distiller of Limestone Branch Distillery explains. “This is a momentous release for our family and it is meticulously handmade, grain to glass, right here at our distillery.”
Bottled at 101 proof and available in 750 ml bottles signed by Steve Beam and nestled in commemorative tubes, Limestone Branch tells us that this Bourbon offers an earthy flavor, dark and rich, with a nose of toasted oak, caramel
and butterscotch at the front of the palate, giving way to rich leather and dark summer fruit on the finish.
“By finishing the bourbon in charred wine casks, we allowed the juice to intensify and evolve, creating a wonderful result,” says Beam. “While last year’s edition was more about subtle nuances, this year’s edition we focused on intense flavors and a richer final product.”
