2016 Kentucky Bourbon
The 2016 Batch One is a Kentucky Bourbon unlike any other. Raised in new, charred, French Oak barrels for over three years is just the start of what Saint Cloud unique. The white oak used for the barrels originated from the famed Limousin forest in France. Placed into the barrels at a relatively low proof, this allows the bourbon to interact with the barrel in a much gentler manner. The mashbill itself is a proprietary blend. The bourbon was distilled in 2016, and bottled in March of 2019. This particular bourbon aims to focus on the mashbill as the centerpiece, with the barrel notes playing a supporting role.
The 2016 Saint Cloud Batch One bourbon was placed in bottle, without a drop of additional water, and completely without filtration. This means that what comes in the bottle is exactly what came from the barrel. There were a total of 3,000 bottles produced.
