A delicious combination of nine and twelve year old Bourbon that shows Bourbon skill runs in the family.
What would happen if the descendants of the legendary Beam family got the itch to reenter the distilling business? This is what would happen… meet Limestone Branch Distillery. Steve and Paul Beam launched their fledgeling distillery and released their first super-premium spirits in 2015. The initial results were so promising, that industry giant Luxco bought a 50% stake to provide distribution and expansion capital. So far their line-up contains three gold-medal-winning Whiskies and they are just getting started.
As we’ve mentioned before, the first Yellowstone brand Whiskey was created by Taylor & Williams in the late 1800s. The brand changed hands many times over the years, and Luxco and Limestone have partnered to recreate the legend. They have taken up the habit of creating a special limited edition Straight Bourbon each year. Yellowstone Limited Edition Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey for 2019 is a selection of a few treasured barrels hidden in their rick-houses — some aged nine years, and others aged twelve years. And the result is a super-fine example of some of the tastiest small batch Bourbon we’ve had this year. They’ve got just 12,500 bottles of the stuff bottled at 50.5% ABV (101 proof).
