Straight Bourbon

United States



Sabbatical Distillery


A full-bodied yet delicate American Bourbon aged over 3 years in charred new American Oak casks and bottled at 100 proof. Barrel Reserve No. 2 is made from hand-selected choice barrels for an impressively smooth and flavorful small batch Bourbon. Non chill filtered, no coloring or flavors added, just straight whiskey from the barrel.

Pleasant sweet notes combine with a hint of spice for a rich and flavorful bourbon with a smooth finish. Enjoy at its robust full strength or on the rocks with a few drops of water to reveal even more flavor notes.

Notes of vanilla, straw, and oak on the nose. Rich amber color. In the beginning sip it was hot. Theres a full oily mouthfeel. Hints of nutmeg and other baking spices. Finishes smoothly
