A pure, high rye Bourbon aged ten years and delivered in very limited quantity.
 
We imagine Whiskey-makers to have names like “Angus McSolid” and look like “The Most Interesting Man in the World.” The founder of Georgetown Trading Co.Amir Peay — looks like a Bond villain from the Sean Connery era. That means we have a craft-distilling company making a range of full-flavored, high-quality Spirits owned by someone who just might be an agent of SECTRE. Their range of quality brands includes John H. Sullivan Irish Whiskies, the historic James E. Pepper 1776 Bourbons and Ryes, Pow Wow Botanical Rye, and 1776 Napa Valley Wines.
 
Old Pepper 10YO Single Barrel Bourbon from the James E. Pepper nameplate is definitely hard to get a hold of. All of their “Old Pepper” products are strictly limited editions pulled from hand selected barrels. But this Old Pepper Bourbon — distilled in 2008 — is so limited that you won’t even find it on the James E. Pepper website, even though it won a double gold medal at the San Francisco Spirits Competition. It says “small batch” on the label and they mean it.
 
It has a spot-on, high rye mash bill (36%) with the rest corn and bit of barley. It’s aged ten full years, bottle at 43% ABV, and you should try a bottle for yourself.
 
Smartass corner:
Amir Peay’s dream came to fruition in 2018 with the opening of a new James E. Pepper Distillery in Lexington, Kentucky — in one of the same buildings as the original distiller that closed in the 1960s. It’s the first time that a historic Bourbon distillery has reopened at its original address.

The temperatures of American warehouses are much higher, so the pace of maturation is much quicker for Bourbons than for Scotch Whiskies

Sophie,
One of my favorite bourbons! Smooth, but still complex and bold. Sophisticated, but not pretentious.

Nicholas,
Starts out smokey then settles with caramel and a slight taste of cherry and finishes with more sweet vanilla, some oak and has a peppery after taste. My bottle is from barrel L18H.
