The Sherry Cask adds a touch of dried fruit sweetness to Old Elk’s traditionally smooth Straight Bourbon Whiskey. Aromas of raisins lead to a dry, medium-bodied dram with a lightly fruity flavor profile that warrants a second sip. Graham cracker and chocolate notes find a nice snack mix of honey-roasted cashews, salty peanuts and more dried fruit. It’s pretty dang luscious and well-layered all the way to the floral finish.

Old Elk Distillery, in Fort Collins, is the brainchild of Greg Metze, who is best known as the master distiller at MGP (the source for many of your favorite American whiskeys) for 38 years, and Curt Richardson (founder of Otterbox and the reason your phone didn’t break when you dropped it the other day.) Metze has taken his bourbon experience and put it to good use with the pristine waters of Northern Colorado. Using a proprietary “slow cut” proofing process they gradually add water to the whiskey over several weeks to preserve the congeners in the whiskey… congeners are what give your favorite bottles their flavor. This visionary technique will eventually be copied by others in the future, bet your bottom dollar.
