Aged 5 Years
This 88-proofer is aged for a minimum of five years. The aromatics are out-of-this-world expressive, with notes of caramelized peach, marshmallow, mandarin orange, and a defined, euphoric hint of Hawaiian plumeria. The succulent palate mirrors the nose, with brown-sugared bananas Foster, cedar, and coconut. Cherry and vanilla mark the final flavors present in this liquid gold.
Rated 95/100 The Tasting Panel
Crafted by Masters, and inspired by rare bottles unearthed and preserved for over 50 years from the collection of John Wayne.
Meticulously blended to replicate and honor the tasting notes and profile preferred by John Wayne using his original recipe from 1962 and his private collection to guide flavor and aromatics. A proprietorial mash bill of predominately American bent corn with additions of rye with sixth-row barley.
Distilled and aged in Kentucky the old fashioned way, in small batches and aged in heavily charred new and hand built American Oak barrels. A unique blend of 88 proof, aged a minimum of 5 years in barrels hand selected for perfection.

  • 75% American dent corn
  • 13% Rye
  • 12% Sixth-row barley
Distilled and bottled in Owensboro, KY at O.Z. Tyler Distillery, KY-11. Blending and Distillation by Founder Chris Radomski and Master Distiller Jacob Call.

Opens with subtle charred oak, roasted nuts, hints of vanilla, caramel, and nutmeg. Mid-palate provides warm pepper spice and toasted nuts, finishing with a deeply satisfying robust sweetness in perfect combination.
