Frey Ranch Four Grain Straight Bourbon is a small-batch, estate-made bourbon whiskey crafted from sustainably grown grains. Aged for an average of five years, this 90-proof spirit boasts a smooth yet complex flavor profile with hints of oak, citrus, vanilla, and caramel.

Description

Frey Ranch Four Grain Straight Bourbon offers a unique journey for your taste buds, thanks to its distinct mash bill and aging process. 

Aroma

Oak and Citrus: The initial aroma is dominated by the influence of the charred oak barrels used for aging. This translates to a rich, woody scent with hints of vanilla and baking spices. The citrus notes add a touch of freshness and vibrancy, potentially grapefruit or orange peel, depending on your palate.

Honey and Candied Orange: Subtle sweetness emerges with hints of honey and candied orange peel. These notes suggest a touch of caramel and a hint of floral character.

Palate

Vanilla and Caramel: The initial sip delivers classic bourbon flavors of vanilla and caramel, creating a smooth and inviting foundation. These notes are a result of the natural breakdown of sugars during fermentation and aging in the oak barrels.

Dried Mint and Banana Chips: A surprising twist comes with the introduction of dried mint and banana chip flavors. These unique notes contribute to the complexity of the bourbon and might be attributed to the use of rye and wheat in the mash bill. The rye can introduce a subtle peppery or herbal quality, while wheat can add a touch of graininess or even a hint of banana bread sweetness.

Dried Hay: A subtle note of dried hay adds a touch of earthiness and complexity to the overall flavor profile. This could be a result of the specific grains used or the interaction with the char from the oak barrels.

Finish

Smooth and Slightly Sweet: The finish of Frey Ranch Four Grain Straight Bourbon is smooth and lingers pleasantly on the tongue. The sweetness from the vanilla and caramel notes carries through, balanced by a touch of oaky dryness. You might also detect a hint of black pepper or cedar in the aftertaste, adding a touch of spice.
