This year, Wilson Living Magazine asked us to hand-pick a few special varieties for their Bachelors of Wilson photo shoot, featured in the March/April issue.

The three we picked are truly special–here’s why:
EAGLE RARE
We hand-selected our 10 year old Eagle Rare single barrel from Buffalo Trace Distillery in Frankfort Kentucky. This mahogany colored bourbon is full bodied that finishes with a nice spice note. This is our everyday, go-to, sipping whiskey at our house. And at under $30.00 it is certainly a great value. Eagle Rare is the only bourbon to wine double gold twice at the San Francisco International Spirits Competition. This is truly a rare bourbon that you will not find on every shelf.

KNOB CREEK

Named after president Abe Lincoln’s boyhood home in Kentucky, Knob Creek is a standout in Jim Beam’s small batch collection. Our hand-selected barrel proof , 9 year old Knob Creek is special because it was chosen with the help of Fred Noe. Noe, who represents the 7th generation of the Beam family is also a Castle Heights grad. Full and smooth with a nice long lingering finish, Knob Creek can be enjoyed with a few splashes of water from the tap like Fred’s daddy, Booker liked. Fred was kind enough to spend some time with us and sign our bottles at the shop. These bottles are just special enough for the big day.

ANGEL’S ENVY

Angel’s Envy get’s its name from the “angel’s share” or the small amount of whiskey that evaporates in the barrel during the aging process. This blended Bourbon is the swan song of late master distiller, Lincoln Henderson. Henderson is known for developing Jack Daniel’s single barrel as well as Woodford Reserve. His son, Wes now runs the show at Angel’s Envy as they continue to produce premium whiskey. While this whiskey can be delicate, our blend is full-bodied, balanced and expressive at the end. Angel’s Envy spends eight monthes in port barrels giving it a unique flavor.
