A statement from the whiskey maker explains that this release features a blend of 7-year, 13-year and 16-year aged bourbons finished in Tokaji casks. It clocks in at 101 proof (50.5% ABV).
The whiskey will carry a suggested price of $99.99 per 750 ml bottle, and go on sale this August.
Yellowstone Bourbon master distiller, Steve Beam, hand selected the three aged bourbons, which were then blended and finished in Tokaji casks.
Tokaji is a traditional sweet wine from the Tokaji region of Hungary, and it’s made from grapes used for white wine. Tokaji wines are known for complex flavors and sweetness.
“With each year’s Yellowstone Limited Edition offering, I seek a finish that I both personally love and believe will make for a flavorful, well-balanced bourbon,” Beam said. “This year, I found the perfect finish in the Tokaji casks sourced from northern Hungary.”
The distiller noted that this whiskey features aromas of honey, green grapes and freshly baked cinnamon. On the palate, it has a dry spice, followed by caramel, dark cherry, citrus and white pepper. It finishes with notes of dry tobacco, honeysuckle and smoky oak.
Beam, a seventh-generation distiller with a history of distilling on both sides of his family (Beam and Dant), opened Limestone Branch Distillery in 2011. In 2015, he brought back the Yellowstone brand.
