BOURBON AGED IN DRAGON'S MILK BARRELS.
Many craft brewer’s will attest that whiskey barrels make great beer, and New Holland's Dragon’s Milk, a stout aged in bourbon barrels, is a delicious example. But their new Beer Barrel Bourbon seeks to demonstrate that the opposite is also true; beer barrels make remarkable whiskey.
Beer Barrel Bourbon is first aged in new American oak barrels for several years, before a three month beer-y slumber in used Dragon's Milk Barrels. The beer-barrel aging lends biscuity notes and a smooth malt character to the robust whiskey tones of toffee and caramel. The end result is certainly still Bourbon, but with a round richness sure to please even the most jaded whiskey connoisseur.
