Charbay R5 Hop Flavored Whiskey
Our fourth release in the collection, Charbay's R5 Lot No. 4 is double-distilled from Bear Republic Brewery's award-winning Racer 5 IPA beer (7% ABV). Marko chose this full-bodied IPA for its aromatic hops and smooth, clean finish, forming the base of R5's unique profile.
Its fourth release, Lot No. 4 was a 10 barrel release, distilled in March 2013 and aged for 29 months in French oak. It has an intensely hoppy nose mixed with orange and clove, and sweet molasses, smoky notes on the palate.
4 STARS / Highly Recommended - Spirit Journal
"Charbay is one of my favorite distilleries in America, and this whiskey is an education in a bottle". - Michael J. Neff, bar director, Holiday Cocktail Lounge, NYC
