Sam Maverick Spirits in San Antonio isn’t a model I used to be conversant in earlier than this, however we’re diving proper in with its restricted version barrel proof bourbon. Some particulars, courtesy of the distillery:

Maverick Whiskey’s limited-edition Samuel Maverick Barrel Proof Straight Bourbon Whiskey, a Licensed Texas Whiskey, has the gusto to make any dad blissful. It’s pot-distilled from a mash of 72% Texas-grown corn, 18% rye, and 10% malted barley, and aged a minimal of two years in new charred white oak barrels. The Texas Barrel Proof Straight Bourbon Whiskey is non-chill filtered and hand-bottled at 114 proof. The distillery is owned by Kenneth Maverick, a direct descendent of Samuel Maverick, a famed defender of the Alamo. This whiskey is distributed in Texas and for buy on-line with transport in 41 states.

Let’s see what Maverick can do when he’s not taking pictures down MiGs.

To start out with, there’s no mistaking this as a Texas bourbon: The nostril has ample char, although it’s filtered by some attention-grabbing, fruit-forward notes of grilled peaches and a ruddier baking spice that’s akin to overbaked gingerbread cookies. Char hits tougher on the palate than the nostril, making a dusky, punchy character that’s laborious to shake. This provides the whiskey a sure darkish chocolate taste, the peaches a bit candylike but in addition a bit smoky, layering in notes of dairy cream and extra of that baking spice. It’s all char on the end, although, a country and toasty expertise that washes away lots of the fruit — and which appears like one thing Samuel Maverick most likely would have loved again in 1836.

114 proof.
