A seven year-old Straight Bourbon finished in Armagnac casks that is a rustic and beautiful as the National park it’s named after.
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 in 2011 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 lineup contains three Gold-medal-winning Whiskies and they are just getting started.
Limestone Branch has done an annual release of their "Yellowstone" limited edition Whiskey since 2015, and this year’s is a doozy. Yellowstone Limited Edition 2020 Bourbon is a small batch Bourbon aged seven years and then finished in French Armagnac barrels — a finishing touch that amplifies the butterscotch notes. The gorgeous new bottle design is filled at 50.5% ABV, so you will have no doubt what you are tasting.
