Boondocks is brought to you by Whisky Advocate Lifetime Achievement Award winner, Dave Scheurich. And while you may have never heard his name, Dave has helped create some of America’s most recognized whiskeys over the last 40 years. Made from 80-90% corn, the spirit is distilled to 160-190 proof and aged for 11 years in used oak barrels. While it has a bourbon-ish base, it is not legally a bourbon because the product is not made to bourbon's legal standards - it doesn't use new, charred barrels and it exceeds proof limits at distillation. Boondocks is only the first expression, with plans for additional variations from Dave and his team in the future.
Boondocks American Whiskey (95 Proof) has already garnered several accolades including a Gold Medal/90 Points from the Los Angeles International Spirits Competition 2016 and was named a Finalist in the Ultimate Spirits Challenge 2016, receiving 92 Points.
Boondocks American Whiskey Cask Strength (127 Proof) has distinctive aromas of rich caramel and vanilla. A robust and pleasantly aggressive palate is highlighted by fall spices and oak that leaves a long lasting finish. This expression received a Gold Medal/91 Points in the Los Angeles International Spirits Competition 2016 and Best of Category in the Ultimate Spirits Challenge 2016.
