Description: Copper & Cask Rye Single Barrel: Bourbon Finds
Background: 30 for 30: Day 26. Copper and Cask is run by Latitude Beverage Co. out of Rhode Island. The website basically says they do single barrels of bourbon and rye. The label is very transparent though, saying it was distilled by MGP in December of 2015 and bottled in March of 2022. It uses the 95/5 rye recipe and was selected by “Bourbon Finds” and was double barreled (I’m assuming with a second, charred oak barrel).
Distillery – MGP
Bottler – Latitude Beverage Co.

Would I buy a bottle? Yes
Thoughts: I got this on sale for a little over $50 (normally about $65). Either way I think it’s a solid value. The rye is present but it isn’t overwhelming or super off putting if you aren’t a fan of the super heavy mash. The finish starts very dessert-like but then gets a nice change of pace with the savory spice. Very nice composition to this whiskey.
