As the craft whisky boom continues to spread across the country, we're seeing more and more distillers begin to offer up single casks. Often that means we're looking at something young or innovative. Maybe some kind of barrel finishes or unusual mash bills designed to enhance the young whiskey prowess. Sometimes this works, other times it just doesn't. But a few smart distillers got in early enough to have secured some decent stocks of older whiskey from larger distillers. The three obvious culprits are Willett, High West and Smooth Ambler. Each have made a name blending and bottling stocks from other distillers while their own production matures. Another outfit has come online recently that's becoming a darling of the drinking cognoscenti. The Joseph Magnus Distillery has been making waves recently with their hard-to-get blends of bourbons from multiple distilleries, usually finished in various wine casks. When they offered to sell us a single cask, I was concerned as it's difficult to gauge how the wine finishes are going to turn out. But, I had it all wrong. These guys were willing to bottle single casks of old whiskey from MGP at full strength without any bells or whistles. We've seen these very whiskies explode on the after-market and I was downright shocked that they'd be ready to part with the old stock. Easily one of the most exciting new offerings of the year and a throwback to a time when well-aged bourbon was taken for granted. Only 120 bottles in this old cask.
