23rd Street Hybrid Whiskey

23rd Street Hybrid Whisk(e)y

Posted in DRINK, WHISKEY By

There are rules for making whiskey. And for making whisky. Bourbon must be distilled from at least 51% corn mash and aged in charred virgin casks. Scotch must come from malted barley and is generally aged in used (often bourbon) casks. One is mellow, oaky, caramel-y. The other is peaty, spicy, smoky. So what happens if you stick both liquors in the same barrel and let them hang out for a while? Some Australians went ahead and found out.

The result? 23rd Street’s Hybrid Whisk(e)y. Made from a blend of prime Scotch and American bourbon, the flavor is unique and distinctive, with sweet sherry and fruit notes, a rounded maltiness and a toasted oak finish. Grab a glass, pour yourself two fingers and raise a toast to the point at which the rules end and bold experimentation begins. Learn more at 23rd Street Distillery.
