Proof & Wood 2021 Seasons 18 Years Old American Blended Whiskey
52.5% ABV, (105 Proof), 700 ml
Proof & Wood Ventures, the spirits company founded by spirits industry veteran Dave Schmier, added another special blend of rare whiskies to its lineup: Seasons 2021.
Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter, each of the seasons generates changes in temperature that affects how the spirits in a barrel cycle through the wood and change the flavor of the spirits. Bottled at 105 proof, Proof and Wood’s Seasons 2021 reflects an unusually long aged spirit, in this case a Tennessee Bourbon from 2003 that has endured more than 72 seasons in the barrel.
The whiskies in Seasons 2021 include the aforementioned 2003 Tennessee Bourbon, 2007 American Light Whiskey distilled in Indiana, 2015 Bourbon (75% corn, 21% Rye, 4% barley) distilled in Indiana and 2013 99% Corn Whiskey distilled in Kentucky.
Seasons 2021 was supposed to be released in 2021, but supply chain and production issues delayed launch until 2022. Seasons 2021 is a limited edition of approximately 1000 bottles that are beautifully packaged in a gift box.
