Belfour Small Batch Bourbon Whiskey
Belfour Spirits producer led by Hockey Hall of Famer Ed
Belfour, has announced the release of its Small Batch Straight Bourbon
“We enjoy playing with barrel science to allow the wood
to work its magic, and that truly shines on this Small Batch Straight Whiskey,”
says Ed Belfour, founder and CEO of Belfour Spirits. “This is a special
bourbon to our family, and we are honored to share it with fans. Creamy
sweet flavors lead to a finish that is complex and evolving. You’ll find a new
flavor hits your palate with every sip.”
The Small Batch Straight Bourbon is 100.5 proof, with a
mash bill of 60% corn, 30% wheat and 10% malted barley.
On the nose is caramel, wildflower honey, gardenia and
hints of mulling spices, the company reports. The palate contains caramel,
chocolate, hazelnut and pecan, before a finish of honey graham cracker, candied
orange peel, sweet pipe tobacco and light peppermint.
Belfour and his children — Dayn and Reaghan — distilled
the spirit at Southern Distilling in Statesville, N.C, where they aged the
bourbon for three years in new American white oak barrels.
The Small Batch Straight Bourbon comes in the Belfour
decanter-like bottle, and features gold labels with black branding accents. The
whiskey was bottled in Harrodsburg, KY.
