DOC SWINSONS Alter ego Triple Cask Straight Bourbon Whiskey

Doc Swinsons

750 ml | 47.9% ABV
Whiskey | Bourbon

INSPIRED BY THE OLD-WORLD TECHNIQUES OF SCOTTISH AND IRISH WHISK(E)Y DISTILLERS WHERE MUCH OF THE MAGIC LIES WITH THE ART OF BLENDING. 
We borrowed and twisted many of these techniques to produce Doc’s Alter Ego Bourbon. Our goal was to take good whiskies, blend them together and see how we could enhance these blends as well as maintain the flavor of the whiskey itself. After years of finishing whiskies in a variety of casks, we believe we have struck success using Olorosso Sherry, Pedro Ximenez Sherry, and Cognac casks from a number of curated producers. 

Whether accentuating or layering in characteristics, we believe these techniques enhance the spirit and still focuses on the bourbon. These casks allow the delicate characteristics of past occupants to mingle and marry with the smooth yet bold aspects of Doc’s Straight Bourbons. Each release is then meticulously blended and married in ex-Cognac Foeders prior to bottling. Our finishing and blending techniques impart a dry nuttiness, subtle sweetness, and an extended finish to an already great whiskey, while still allowing the bourbon to shine.

“HIGH RYE WHISKEY OF THE YEAR”  - TALES OF THE COCKTAIL, 2022

After numerous releases of our Triple Cask Alter Ego Bourbon, Jesse Parker, Doc's blender, started to notice a late-night trend as we sampled the base bourbon. After witnessing copious nights in the warehouse with glasses that refused to be set down, it became apparent that the Blenders Cut needs to be shared! Aged 5 years, we offer this to you at a whopping 115 proof, from the cask. Enjoy straight from the bottle or add a little water to bring out some more flavors. 

PRODUCING DISTILLERY: MGP

TASTING NOTES: apricots, brown sugar, peanuts, toasted almond, charred oak, dark chocolate, and cream 

HOW TO DRINK: Spectacular neat, but we also find that it goes well with ice or in a classic cocktail such as an old-fashioned, Manhattan, or your favorite bourbon cocktail.
