One of the best Bourbons of the year, this time at cask strength.
 
Iron Smoke Distillery is a fairly new addition to the craft distilling community located in Upstate New York. In that part of the state they grow a lot of apples. So it is only natural that this local crop would have an impact on the spirits they produce. Currently, there are four products in the Iron Smoke family — Iron Smoke Straight Bourbon Whiskey, Iron Smoke Casket Strength, Rattlesnake Rosie's Apple Pie Whiskey and Rattlesnake Rosie’s Maple Bacon Whiskey.
 
One of the limited edition release is Iron Smoke CASKet Strength. It might be hard to think that you could improve on their Straight Bourbon — after all, it won Double Gold at the North American Bourbon & Whiskey Competition and was rated 95.5 in the 2018 edition of Jim Murray’s Whiskey Bible. But the good folks at Iron Smoke realized that if their award-wining Bourbon was great at 40% ABV, it would be even better at cask strength. And that’s exactly what they did. Iron Smoke Casket Strength is a powerhouse at 60% ABV (120 proof).
 
 
Smartass corner:
The company mascot has always been “Skully.” This powerful Bourbon at cask strength made the pun “CASKet Strength” irresistible.

Fiery Bronze
 
Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma is vary powerful… you can smell the raw Bourbon spice along with the vanilla, hot toffee, and wild western herbal notes with a bit of apple.
 
Flavor / Taste / Palate
Even if you drink your Whiskey straight, this Bourbon blooms with a single ice cube — revealing notes of pecan pie, braised apples, caramel apples, thick baking spices, and tobacco smoke.
 
Finish 
The finish is long, spicy, and lightly sweet.

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.
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 have very prominent notes of vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
"Remember that iconic poster from World War II showing Rosie the Riveter as a patriotic American woman doing her part for the war effort? Well, hundreds of businesses did their part too, and the Bourbon distillers stepped right up with ‘em.

Distilleries all over Kentucky and Tennessee were re-tooled to distill fuel alcohol and ferment penicillin cultures to treat wounded soldiers."
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 must be made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn.
