Rough Rider Straight Bourbon Whiskey begins as a highly refined mash bill consisting of 60% corn, 35% rye and 5% malted barley, which is then aged for several years in charred new American white oak barrels. The whiskey is then matured for a second time in local Long Island wine casks which have been treated with a "cask finishing wash" of 180 proof brandy distilled from chardonnay. The resulting spirit displays inviting aromas of toffee, oak and baking spice, accented by lovely floral note. Complex, well-integrated notes of dark red fruit, caramel, vanilla and oak emerge on the palate and meld with a touch of honey on the finish.
