W.B. Saffell Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey 375 ml

Description

53.5% ABV, 375 ml

W.B. Saffell is part of Campari’s new Whiskey Barrons line.

"The Barons of Whiskey was a group of men that helped make Kentucky bourbon legendary, ushering in bourbon's golden age more than 100 years ago. James Ripy, Bond & Lillard, and W.B. Saffell were among them. Their whiskey empires kept expanding all the way until Prohibition hit in 1920 and many distilleries had to close their doors. The Whiskey Barons Collection by Wild Turkey owners Campari came to be in 2017 and pays tribute to those great men with 3 expressions: Old Ripy, Bond & Lillard, and W.B. Saffell.

All of them are crafted from Wild Turkey's mash bill of 75% corn, 13% rye, and 12% malted barley. They come in 375ml bottles that harken back to the standards of the pre-Prohibition era. But there's more to it. While most of the original recipes have been lost, the creators had to painstakingly piece together the profiles from historical files, tasting notes, old product descriptions from packaging, and interviews of surviving family members. Distilled in Lawrenceburg, Indiana, at the Wild Turkey Distillery, they revive the legacy of the Whiskey Barons.

W.B. Saffell is the newest in the lineup. It pays tribute to William Butler Saffell, who began distilling as a teenager and built his first distillery in 1889. This bourbon is inspired by the delicate spirit he produced at the time and is the first in the collection to have legendary Master Distiller Eddie Russell working on the spirit. A blend of 6, 8, 10, and 12-year-old Kentucky straight bourbon, it's non-chill filtered and bottled at 107 proof."
