A truly rare and superb example of Bourbon treasure.

The Chicken Cock brand goes all the way back to 1856 in Paris, Kentucky. It was a fairly successful Bourbon in its day, but things REALLY took off during Prohibition when the owners moved production to Canada and took the innovative step of packaging their hooch in tin cans to hide it from Johnny Law. In the 1950’s the Chicken Cock Distillery burned down, but liquor wonder-kind and serial entrepreneur Matti Anttila of Grain & Spirits bought the brand and released their line of Whiskey in 2016.

Chicken Cock 10 year old Double Barrel is called “double barrel” because the Gregg Snyder — master distiller at Chicken Cock hand selected twelve barrels and married them two at a time by taste. Not only is that a tasty and painstaking process, but it means that there will only be 330 cases of the stuff — and those 1,960 bottles are not nearly enough if you ask us. The mash bill is 70% corn, 21 % rye, and 9% malted barley. They are even precise about the charring, with a #4 char on the barrel staves, but only a #2 char on the heads. And it’s aged in those barrels a full decade and bottles at 52% ABV… powerfully delicious.

Bourbon matures quicker than Scotch due to higher temperatures in American warehouses.
Straight Bourbon must be matured for at least 2 years. If a bottle has no age statement, it’s at least 4 years old.
Bourbon Is a ''new barrel Spirit'': One of the legal requirements for Bourbon is that it only be aged in brand new oak charred barrels.
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.
Bourbons are very high in vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
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.
