Our single barrel from Watershed has arrived! Founded in 2010 in Columbus Ohio, Watershed has steadily grown from two guys and a tiny still to an operation of over 40 people and two state of the art stills. From day one, their focus was to make great spirits and give back to their home community. Watezrshed is now a central piece of Columbus and showcases a full range of spirits but their bourbons have become the focus of the operation. Using a traditionally inspired mash bill of 71% corn, 22% rye, and 7% malted barley, Watershed have made themselves one of the best up and coming distilleries in the Midwest by refining their practices and sticking to their original focus of making fantastic spirits.
This Watershed pick just screams classic American Bourbon. Notes of savory wood and rye spice lead the way. Vanilla, citrus, nutmeg, pepper, and cinnamon all come in waves on the nose and palate. An oily texture leads to a long finish of dried fruits and toffee. The custom #5 char that Watershed uses adds a ton of barrel character while still allowing the base spirit to shine. Weighing in at a hefty 130.8 proof, this barrel is bold and loaded with complex flavors. Adding a splash of water softens the wood tannins and balances out the heat for a lower octane drinking experience. However you drink your bourbon, this Watershed pick will deliver a classic profile.

This barrel was bottled at 4 years, 11 months.
