Old Hamer Straight Rye and Straight Bourbon Whiskies

Old Hamer Straight Rye Whiskey Cask Strength...$37.99 / 750ml

Featuring a mash bill of 51% rye, 45% corn, and 4% malted barley, it represents a sweeter softer rye whiskey compared to traditional higher rye mash bills. This rye is aged for a minimum of 3 years in 53-gallon new charred American oak barrels. On the nose, rye spice and orange zest jump from the glass balanced with sweet cornbread. On the palate, a rich marzipan rye spice is quickly followed by finishing notes of dried fruit and sweet caramel.

Old Hamer Straight Bourbon Whiskey...$23.99 / 750ml

Featuring the “Old Hamer Standard” mash bill of 99% corn, and 1% malted barley, the 80 proof epitomizes a sweeter, softer bourbon compared to traditional three or four grain mash bills. Aged for a minimum of 3 years in 53-gallon new charred American oak barrels, this bourbon has aromas of stone fruit, lemon grass, leather and caramel that jump from the glass. On the palate, soft notes of cherry, sweet cream, and vanilla are followed by caramelized sugar, subtle licorice and oak which perfectly round out the finish. A light and easy, daily drinker.
40% ABV
Distilled, Aged & Bottled in Indiana.
Oak and vanilla aromas lead the nose. The palate is relatively restrained for a Bourbon, with delicate coconut, almond and vanilla tones leading into ginger and white pepper on the drying finish. Made with 99% corn and 1% barley.
