Oola Bourbon Whiskey Four Bottle CollectionOola Discourse C Whiskey 750 MLOola Three Shores Black Label Whiskey 750 MLOola Cask Strength Bourbon Whiskey 750 MLOola Bourbon Whiskey 750 MLThe very limited (only four barrels produced!) fourth release in our conversation-starting Whiskey Discourse series, Three Shores Black Label combines our Three Shores Blended Whiskey with an additional year of aging-in French Oak-Cabernet Sauvignon barrels from one of the top Cabernet producers in Washington State. Youll recall the discourse with the original Three Shores Whiskey involves a conversation with iconic whiskeys from three different countries: a Highland Scotch, our own American high rye Whiskey, and a deep, rich and smooth Canadian Whiskey.This cask strength bourbon, which is made from a four-grain mashbill and earned the Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in 2013, was bottled at a robust 116 proof without the use of chill filtration.*EXTREMELY LIMITIED RELEASES*Choice barrels of our Waitsburg Bourbon Whiskey are occasionally selected for bottling. As with vintage wine bottlings, theres no exact schedule for these releases. At barrel strength our Bourbon presents an explosive nose of concentrated spice and toasted sugars. The finish is long, with heightened aromas of toffee, bright cherry, fresh tobacco leaf, vanilla bean and smoke. The spicy kick of a high rye content is balanced by sweet, smooth corn and the unmistakably silky viscosity of organic Washington soft white winter wheat. Aged initially in ten-gallon American oak casks and then matured in 53-gallon barrels, this meticulously handcrafted Bourbon has mellow tannins even at high proof.Never chill-filtered, our Cask Strength releases present Bourbon enthusiasts the opportunity to fine-tune their enjoyment.Our Cask Strength release offers the chance to taste Waitsburg Bourbon just as it comes out of the barrel. While some batches are a single barrel, most are selected from a variety of barrels”each with something subtly different to contribute.-Kirby Kallas-LewisOola Waitsburg Cask Strength Bourbon is crafted from a mash of approximately 65% corn and 20%-28% rye, with the remaining balance split evenly between malted barley and white winter wheat "All our grains are sourced from two organic farms in Eastern Washington," says Kirby. In addition, the use of wheat in the bourbon's mashbill "allows me to hold back on the corn and add more rye. This results in a more complex, balanced and less overly sweet bourbon." Once the ingredients arrive at the distillery, they are milled and mashed before being distilled through Kirby's copper-pot still.Following distillation, the bourbon is matured in small, American white oak casks that are subjected to large temperature swings of up to 50-70° each day. "The idea is to extract a lot of the influence from the barrel early on in the aging process." After this initial beautyrest, the bourbon is transferred to 53-gallon, American white oak casks that boast an alligator char. The alligator char allows the whiskey to penetrate the wood, which hails from the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas, up to a ¼ inch. There, the bourbon rests for an additional three to four years. Whereas at that point, multiple casks are typically married together to create a blended bourbon whiskey, Oola Waitsburg Cask Strength Bourbon represents a single barrel bottling from Oola's finest stock of maturing whiskey.Oola Waitsburg Cask Strength Bourbon has a spicy aroma, with touches of cinnamon, ginger and black peppercorn that give way to notes of caramel, vanilla, cherry and oak on the palate. The finish is warm and balanced, with hints of brown sugar, toffee and maple syrup complementing each other.The bourbon was "highly recommended" by the Beverage Testing Institute, and has a "pleasingly long and mellow finish," according to the Capitol Hill Times. In addition, it earned the Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in 2013 and the Silver Medal at the Beverage Testing Institute Competition in 2012.Oola Discourse C American Whiskey takes Oola Waitsburg Bourbon, which earned 93 points and a Gold Medal at the 2013 San Francisco World Spirits Competition, and finishes it for an additional nine months in 60-gallon French oak barrels from a 100-point Washington Cabernet Sauvignon producer. As a result, Oola Discourse C American Whiskey has a bright aroma of breakfast toast, honey-roasted nuts and caramelized fruits. The lush nose gives way to creamy notes of baking spices and creme brule, and leads to a vibrant finish filled with toffee, dark chocolate and fresh fruits, particularly oranges and plums.The conversation between French and American oak barrels is what we are exploring here, says Oola founder Kirby Kallas-Lewis. Oola Discourse C American Whiskey was Highly Recommended by the Beverage Testing Institute, and is extremely limited in quantity.Oola Waitsburg Bourbon is crafted from a mash of approximately 65% corn, 25% rye, 13% malted barley and 12% white winter wheat.

"These casks are then combined to marry together subtle flavors that compliment each other ” usually two barrels are married together, but sometimes 3 or 4 work best to get to the optimum flavor profile before bottling."Once the barrels have been blended, the bourbon is bottled without the use of chill filtration. "We want the full richness of the nose and flavor profile to stay as intact as possible," says Kirby.
