Garrison Brothers Cowboy Bourbon 2019
Every barrel used in this release was five years old: the oldest bourbon whiskey ever made in Texas. Finally, it will be barrel proof. Straight from the barrel. Unfiltered. Uncut. Cask strength at 137.3 proof! Each bottle is housed in a rugged, custom-built American white oak gift box lined with a satin pillow, branded with the Garrison Brothers brand. Each bottle is hand-signed and numbered by master distiller Donnis Todd.
Bouquet of lavender, Manhattan street-cart roasted walnuts, pipe tobacco and Arabica coffee. Powerful rush of raw honeycomb, dried cherries, toffee, warm molasses, cooked apricots, and burnt raisins. Figs and ganache. Burnt marshmallows and a Milk Dud finish. A pleasing hiss like a snake’s rattle as it settles in and numbs the tongue.
