Above the previous numerous decades, the distillers at Boulder Spirits by Vapor Distillery have quietly redefined Colorado whiskey. Now, with seven whiskeys (alongside with gin and vodka), Boulder Spirits is giving a unique likelihood to sample the variety of its choices in the Adventure Package: 50-milliliter bottles of 6 whiskeys.

The package includes 3 American one-malt whiskeys and 3 bourbons. American single-malt whiskey is a quickly escalating class, and its distinctive from its illustrious cousin Scotch single-malt whisky (frequently spelled without the need of the ‘e’). Brogan, a Scot and former member of the Royal Air Power, brought a 1,500-gallon copper pot nevertheless forged in Scotland to Boulder when he joined the distilling workforce in 2012. The continue to was designed by Forsyths, a Scottish enterprise that is been earning stills for additional than a century, and Boulder Spirits claims it is the biggest in the West.

The continue to is suitable, Brogan states, for assembly the standards that the freshly made American One Malt Whiskey Fee have place in play for the category: 100% malted barley, created in the U.S. at a person distillery, aged in oak casks. Brogan claims even nevertheless the one-malt historical past and the continue to comes from Scotland, the concentration is on creating a new spirit, not a replication of the abroad version. Boulder Spirits ages its single-malt whiskey on white oak barrels from Missouri oak trees, water will come from Eldorado Springs, and the semi-arid climate of Colorado is so vastly different from the sea-tinged, moist air in Scotland, that the growing older method produces a exclusive spirit.

So, in the Journey Kit, tasters will get 3 single-malts to check out: the New American, Peated Malt and Bottled in Bond. Aged for 3 yrs in all those Missouri oak barrels, the New American has tasting notes of citrus and stone fruit, with a healthy dose of wooden and vanilla. The Peated Malt is 1-of-a-form aged for three yrs, there’s a distinctive but perfectly-apportioned kick of peat that delivers a nice amount of earthiness to every single sip. And the Bottled in Bond is aged longer (more than 4 many years), has a greater liquor material, and has a balanced style of product and spice.

The bourbons, meanwhile, are also exclusive to Boulder Spirits, and to Colorado. The Straight Bourbon’s received the usual 51% corn, but the addition of 44% malted hardly in the mash bill, and a tiny rye, generates a sleek, interesting bourbon with notes of apple and fig. The Sherry Cask edition — finished on former sherry barrels — is fruity and spiced, like a fruitcake or mulled wine and the Bottled in Bond is a punch of malt.

For under $30, the package also consists of a tasting sheet and a QR code that’ll immediate drinkers to a 30-minute video in which Boulder Spirits Proprietor Alastair Brogan and Manufacturer Ambassador Ryan Negley walk through the flight.
