Calumet Bourbon extends their line of winning Single Rack Whiskies with a fifteen year-old stallion of a dram.

Western Spirits Beverage Company is a bit of an upstart in the world of Bourbon and American Whiskey. Founded in 2008 in Bowling Green, Kentucky, they focus on a vision to build unique, innovative spirit brands. And we’re lucky they did. They’ve developed a tidy range of Bourbons and Whiskey brands to fit every palate and price point — including Calumet, Lexington Bird Dog, and Sam Houston — in partnership with Bardstown Bourbon.

The Calumet brand is named after a famous Thoroughbred Horse Farm in Kentucky — Calumet Farm. Their “Single Rack” line is the top-level offering. It’s bigger than a Single Barrel release, but more selective than a Reserve. It’s different because each release is culled from a single rack in a single rickhouse.

Calumet Farm 15 Year Old Single Rack Black was distilled in 2006 with a mash bill of 74% corn, 18% rye, and 8% malted barley. This winning dram was aged for fifteen glorious years on a single rack in Bardstown, Kentucky, and is bottled at 52.5% ABV without chill-filtering or additives — as it should be.

Smartass Corner:
Founded in 1924, Calumet Farm is a 762 acre facility in the heart of the Bluegrass State that breeds and trains Thoroughbred racehorses. The farm has produced more Kentucky Derby winning horses than any other breeder — and two of those went on to with the Triple Crown.

Bourbons have very prominent notes of vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
Sure, Kentucky gets all the press when it comes to Bourbon. And with good reason—nearly 95% of it is produced there. But Bourbon can be made anywhere as long as it's within the United States. Just ask states with budding distilleries like Illinois and New York.
Bourbon only needs to be placed in a new oak container for a few seconds to be called Bourbon. Fresh from the still and unaged Bourbon is called a White Dog. Recently, many of the larger distillers have started packaging this harsh, clear grain spirit for sale.
At any given time, there are more barrels of Bourbon in Kentucky than there are people. The population of the Bluegrass State is about 4.4 million. Today there are more than 5 million barrels of Bourbon sitting in the rick-houses of that Old Kentucky Home. That’s nearly 300 bottles of Bourbon per person, or about 60 gallons each.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
