Charbay Whiskey

Charbay Whiskey closeout prices

Charbay Doubled and Twisted Whiskey...$31.99
Lowest price online is $42.69
(Lot No. 1)
Doubled & Twisted combines the best of the years since that first thesis project (a departure from Charbay’s award winning hoppy whiskeys), a double Alambic pot distilled blend of 50% Aged Single Malt (3 year); 30% Aged Stout Whiskey (7 year); and 20% Aged Pilsner Whiskey (3 year). The final juice exudes floral, green spice notes, warm aromas of baking spices (nutmeg, clove, cinnamon, allspice) and oak-smoked malted barley. French and American Oak impart flavors from smoky, toasted vanilla to dark roasted coffee.
660 cases will be available
Alcohol 45% | 90 Proof

Charbay Whiskey R5 Hop Flavored Whiskey...$49.99
Next Lowest price online is $59.99
Now in its fourth release, Charbay's R5 Lot No. 4 is double-distilled from Bear Republic Brewery's award-winning Racer 5 IPA beer (7% abv)
Marko chose this IPA for its upfront aromatic hops, great dose of bittering hops, high quality two-row barley, balanced and a smooth, clean finish… See if you can taste how each of these is revealed in the whiskey.
Alcohol 49.5% | 99 Proof

Charbay S Hop Flavored Whiskey Lot 211A...$79.99
Lowest price online is $114.99
In February 2011, Marko became intrigued by Bear Republic's Big Bear Stout - a beer that you can really sink your teeth into. The bold, roasty, caramel malt flavor is balanced by Centennial and Cascade hops.

"It's extremely complex. Single malts only use a single malt—this Stout has over five different malts, as well as adjuncts and several different hop varieties. All of these qualities come through into an extremely complex whiskey," explains Marko.

Charbay 'S' Whiskey was double-distilled in the family's copper Alambic Charentais Pot Still. Working 24 hours a day for 10 days straight, Marko distilled 6,000 gallons of beer distills into 590 gallons of whiskey (almost 10:1 ratio) to create roughly 650 cases altogether (10 barrels).

Flavor profile: dried apricot, honeysuckle, vanilla, roasted coffee, orange zest, hints of cardamom, chocolate malt, rich and chewy, brown spice
Aged in for 29 months in used French Oak
Lot 211A was distilled in February 2011 (the “A” stands for “aged”)
Tasting Notes: From Cigar Aficionado: "Fruity and herbal aromas; Palate: Hard candy, lemons and honey burst onto the palate and are followed by the advertised hoppy flavor. A definite taste of the stout comes through. Develops an orange-peel note." Jack Bettridge
Serving Suggestions: Enjoy room temperature neat, with a splash of spring water or a spring water ice cube.
