This cask strength version is Rough Rider gone full Wild Bill Hickok. Clocking in at 114-proof, this is a big, bold showman of an American Whiskey that holds nothing back. Long Island Spirits is the first distillery on Long Island since the 1800s, making them a unique beast on the burgeoning New York craft whiskey scene. Also setting them apart is their use of ex-wine barrels for finishing; The Happy Warrior spends 3-6 month in used Merlot and Chardonnay Casks washed in aged brandy made from local wineries. If you’re in need of something special, for your bar or a friend, this is a real straight shooter.
