Attention, Penelope Bourbon made a batch exclusively for our Advent Calendar.
Mike Paladini and his wife Kerry had long agreed that if they had a daughter she would be named Penelope. In 2018, they had that daughter, named her as intended, and founded Penelope Bourbon at the same time with Mike’s childhood friend Danny Polise. As many start-up Spirits companies do, they launched it with a little outside help. In this case, the distilling and aging happens in Indiana at MGP and expert blending and bottling assistance comes from Castle Rock in Kentucky — whom they proudly call a part of their team. And the team is working, with two successful releases under their belt and a fistful of awards already in hand.
The Penelope Bourbon Barrel Strength just seems to get better with each batch. Of course, every batch is special but this batch is particularly close to our hearts — it’s been crafted for Flaviar’s Advent Calendar. Obviously, the folk at Penelope Bourbon had to put their best game forward. It's a blend of 3 MGP Bourbons comprised of 4 grains (corn, wheat, rye, and malt), aged 3.5 to 4.5 years in new American oak with a #4 char on the staves and #2 char on the heads. Naturally, it's uncut and non-chill-filtered. The 115-proof Bourbon is a little gem of a Whiskey with plenty of awards to show for it, but most importantly ― it's just a mighty fine sipper.
The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Penelope Bourbon Small Batch Barrel Strength and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.
We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.
