This father and son​ team have carved out a winning Small Batch Bourbon aged in smaller-sized casks.

David Woods is the father, and David Woods is the son (no, not David junior). But they started the Wiggly Bridge Distillery together in 2013 on Repeal Day (December 5th — the 80th anniversary of the repeal of Prohibition). They hand built their own custom, small batch stills in York, Maine, and set about the craft of making fine Spirits. The company is named after a local landmark — the smallest pedestrian suspension bridge in America. Built in 1930, it has stood the test of time and rugged New England winters — though it does bounce and wiggle a bit when you walk across.

Small barrels age Spirits faster. This is because there is more liquid to wood contact. Where "normal" American Whiskey barrels hold about fifty-three gallons, the barrels used by Wiggly Bridge are just thirty gallons each with a #3 char. And Wiggly Bridge Small Barrel Bourbon sits in those barrels for less than two years. The mash bill is a traditional mix — 58% corn, 37% rye, and 5% malted barley. And it’s bottled at a spot-on perfect 43% ABV

Smartass Corner:
Technically, if you could economically make barrels the size of a mason jar the Whiskey could age to years worth of taste in a matter of months.

Phill,
This is one of the best tasting bourbons I’ve ever had, especially for the price. I wish I could get it locally. I will try to buy more.

Kirk,
Liked the initial sweetness but wasn’t a big fan when I started tasting the 2nd layer of notes. Not a bad bottle but wouldn’t buy this again given the price.

I love the company and that they actually produce from scratch. I was pleasantly surprised how sweet it is. It's my daily drinker.

Okay...a bit bitter and rough. Bought it at a local shop to support the company.

Gregory,
First tasted on the rocks in Kennebunkport, ME. Light amber color, smells of caramel and some fruit. No burn, sweetness at the finish. Enjoyable everyday whiskey.

Really opened up with a little bit of water. I enjoyed trying this for the first time. Got it as a gift from a friend in New Hampshire.

I am not an expert, but I love the taste on the rocks, I can't imagine mixing it with anything, I use lesser whiskeys for cocktails.
