Doc Swinson's Alter Ego Cask Strength Bourbon Whiskey

Item # 44485 750mL

Notes of orange blossom honey, glazed cinnamon apples and lemon ginger tea give expression to the variety of casks this whiskey was aged in, including new American Oak, ex-Cognac Casks and ex-Sherry casks, while the palate takes on a spicier oaky presence with additional underlying herbal notes. This young brand is building a name for themselves by stepping outside of the box of traditional American Whiskey offerings.

Staff Pick Notes

I love Bourbon and I love Cognac, and the good folks at Doc Swinson’s finished this gorgeous distillate in a magical trifecta of Cognac, Oloroso sherry, and Pedro Ximenez sherry casks for sixteen months. If that wasn’t enough, they blend and finish in ex-Cognac marrying vats called Foeders. These large oak tanks the size of a car allow the spirits to really cozy up to one another resulting in a perfectly balanced bourbon with a heavy cognac influence ready to be bottled and enjoyed. Aromas of marzipan, nut brittle, and dark cherry entice us and the first sip over-delivers a rich and satisfying palate of cherries, chocolate orange, cinnamon and vanilla custard. Summer has wound down and champagne fueled beach adventures have given way to a fine dram or three by the fire after dinner, and for that, this is exactly what the doctor ordered.
