A high-malt, lively Bourbon with a kick from central Michigan.

Chad Munger and his wife Tracy Hickman were working in Chicago, but they were both born in Michigan. That’s where they hoped to retire one day, and that’s where they founded their distillery — in the community of Torch Lake — in 2013. The region is packed with farms and fruit trees and plenty of spring water, which makes it perfect. Their fledgeling distillery has a loyal local following and a range of interesting and delectable Spirits, including Whiskies, Rum, Gin, Vodka, and Cordials.

They keep the exact mash bill a secret, but Mammoth Woolly Bourbon is a “high malt” Bourbon, with “almost double the malt found in conventional Bourbon mash bills.” Most Bourbons have between 5% and 10% malted barley, so you estimate it from there. The rest of the local grains are corn — of course — and rye. And the distillery is taking the time/smaller-barrel approach to aging. That means that in stead of the industry-standard 50+ gallon barrels, they are using a combination of five and thirty-gallon casks with a #3 char which allow for more wood contact per liter and faster maturation. And it’s bottled at a perfect 46% ABV.

Smartass corner:
Mammoth Distilling sits on the 45th parallel — the midpoint between the Equator and North Pole. It is the same latitude as Bordeaux, France; Lombardy, Italy; Hokkaido, Japan, and Oregon’s Willamette Valley. All are famous fruit-growing and brandy-making regions.

Emily,
It was good, I would get it again.

Troy,
it's one of the strangest flavor profiles I've ever tasted in a Bourbon; hopefully they don't use Flint water...not recommended neat, rocks or in a cocktail. They need to work on this recipe.
