A bourbon blend comprised of whiskeys matured between nine and eighteen years. The folks at Jos. A. Magnus & Co. have masterfully blended this to equal greater than the sum of its parts.

This whiskey opens with aromas of dark fruit, hot cocoa, and a touch of wheat. The palate is robust and spicy with notes of black pepper, blood orange rind, and chocolate complemented by a whiff of caramel and warm vanilla. A long, toasty finish brings it all home and leaves you wanting more.

" The whiskey world is an industry with a troubled past yet full of redemption and resurrection stories. Jos. A. Magnus distillery is one of those stories. In 2007 Jimmy Turner found a bit of family history in his mother’s home, a one-hundred year old bottle of his great-grandfather’s bourbon. After some digging, Jimmy began sourcing whiskey from MGP and finishing it in the magic combination of Sherry and Cognac casks to re-create his great-grandfather’s elixir. With a new distillery in DC and several awards under their belt already, Jos. A. Magnus is a brand to keep an eye on! Joseph A. Magnus established his eponymous company in 1892 as a liquor wholesaler in Cincinnati. His success was largely the result of innovative concepts with regard to whiskey and marketing. He used Oloroso, Pedro Ximenez and Cognac casks to finish his bourbons before bottlings, creating a unique flavor profile that the competition couldn’t match. He also offered so-called “freebies” with his whiskeys in the form of branded shot glasses and other bar wares. Unfortunately, like so many others, Prohibition got the better of Mr. Magnus’ business and he shuttered by 1918 disappearing from public life. /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:""Table Normal""; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-priority:99; mso-style-parent:""""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin-top:0in; mso-para-margin-right:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:10.0pt; mso-para-margin-left:0in; line-height:115%; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:11.0pt; font-family:""Calibri"",sans-serif; mso-ascii-font-family:Calibri; mso-ascii-theme-font:minor-latin; mso-hansi-font-family:Calibri; mso-hansi-theme-font:minor-latin; mso-bidi-font-family:""Times New Roman""; mso-bidi-theme-font:minor-bidi;} "
