Wonderful Bourbon of the North.
Traverse City, MI, is the perfect place to raise a Bourbon with its mild summers and cold winters. The trio of founders knew that when they established the distillery in 2012 in an old power station. One of them, Chris Fredrickson, found a cache of distilling patents filed by his great-grandfather in 1920. He revived the dream and started producing the "Whiskey of the North". In addition to weather that mirrors the wine regions of Europe, Traverse City distillery has another ace up their sleeve: new American oak barrels with a lighter char sourced from Kentucky and Tennessee.
Their Straight Bourbon Whiskey is a three-grain concoction (71% corn, 25 rye, 4% barley) that’s bottled at 86 Proof after it spends four years maturing. Its slight smokiness reminds of Scotch, and it offers a balanced dance of heat, strength and alluring flavors. Its character is strong enough not to disappear in a cocktail, while its citrusy palate makes drinking easy when neat.

Ratings & Reviews
Hint of citrus character. Really enjoyable bourbon.
After the initial punch of ethanol, this bourbon provides a Triple C nose of corn, cedar, and citrus that is pleasant but neither complex nor intriguing. The sip is sweet up front with a crisp, dry mouthfeel that gives just enough of a smooth, oily texture to show that a couple more years in the barrel would make something really special. On the way down, a punch of spice in the back of the throat leads to a smooth, moderate finish with vanilla, caramel, and oak. Go back in for another smell and find raisin, molasses, and apple. It's Michigan autumn in a glass. This bourbon definitely belongs in the category of sipping whiskey but is perhaps only just on the other side of the line from being a cocktail mixer. Overall, a balanced and easy bourbon from a young distillery with a lot of promise.
