Wilderness Trail's rye small grain bourbon is offered as a small batch release, up to 12 barrels per batch, which was the result of one fermenter. The goal of the small batch is to capture the total essence of more complex notes from multiple barrels of distillate from the same fermenter. It is also crafted as a Bottled in Bond so fans of the wheated single barrel bourbon can do a side-by-side comparison.
The Small Batch release mash bill is 64 percent corn, 24 percent rye and 12 percent malted barley using proprietary yeast strains. They barrel in cooper select, toasted and #4 char barrel at 110 proof after coming off the still around 137 proof. Aged in both Rickhouse A at a mid- to upper-floor and in Rickhouse B in the center of the warehouse.
THIS IS NOT THE WHEATED VERSION.
