Character Goatson
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.

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.
Bourbon was declared "The Official Spirit of America" by an Act of Congress signed by President Lyndon Johnson in 1964.
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.
Bourbons are very high in vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
Bourbon rules refer to manufacturing methods rather than location. Bourbon must be matured in new and charred American white oak casks for at least 2 years. If the bottle has no age statement, the Bourbon is at least 4 years old. No coloring or flavoring of any type is allowed, and the mash bill must contain at least 51% corn.
