    Untitled Whiskey No. 3 and 4 are a unique local collaboration. We loaned freshly emptied bourbon barrels to Vigilante Coffee roasters. For our second batch of No. 3, we refilled barrels that held roasted coffee beans with our sourced six year-old wheated bourbon, creating a smoky whiskey with notes of bittersweet chocolate and roasted coffee; the after-dinner drink has been redefined!

    For Untitled Whiskey No. 4 we took our bourbon barrel used to age Vigilante Coffee's unroasted, green Sumatran beans and aged Tennessee sour mash whiskey in the barrel. The sweet, smoky maple of the whiskey was reborn with savory notes that are unlike anything you have tried before and that will keep your palate intrigued long after the dram goes down.

    Untitled Whiskey No. 9 is a six year-old wheated bourbon blended and finished for 8 months in Limousin French oak Calvados casks.

    This is a bourbon that reads like a fruit forward Speyside Scotch. Months in Calvados casks impart a dry minerality, with toasted oak and crisp apple notes.

    Whiskey No. 10

    Best in Category; Double Gold Medal Winner
    2018 San Francisco World Spirits Competition

    Untitled Whiskey No. 10 is a nine-year old high-rye bourbon that was rested in Cognac and Spanish Brandy casks and then blended and finished in barrels that had previously contained our own Rock Creek Rye whiskey.

    Floral and honeyed on the nose, the first sip of this whiskey is a bold medley of sweet candied orange and piquant ginger. Sun-ripened grapes settle on the mid-palate before ending in a succinct, spicy finish. This unique whiskey will keep you coming back to savor its many intriguing flavors.

    Whiskey No. 11

    50% alc. by vol

    Untitled Whiskey No. 11 is a blend of bourbons finished in a combination of Cognac, Ruby Port, and Pedro Ximenez and Oloroso sherry casks.

    Hands down our boldest expression to date, this whiskey has a nose full of candied orange peel with a hint of spring campfire. Flavors are reminiscent of a rum-raisin ice cream before spiced buttery coffee cake and hints of leather emerge, leading to a finish with chocolate-toffee candy and brandied cherries.

    Whiskey No. 12

    44% alc. by vol

    For Untitled Whiskey No. 12, we furnished Harper Macaw chocolate makers with barrels to age cocoa nibs sourced from Vale do Juliana farm in Bahia, Brazil. We then refilled barrels with a 7-year old heated bourbon. The nose is full of dark plum, raisin and toasted cinnamon and star anise. The palate starts with creamy butterscotch and sharp crystallized ginger before decadent flavors of spiked cocoa and dark cherry syrup develop. The finish brings earthy notes of tobacco, slate and bitter chocolate.

    Whiskey No. 13

    53% alc. by vol

    Presenting Untitled Whiskey No. 13, a 10-year old high rye bourbon rested in a combination of Cognac, Spanish brandy, Amontillado, Oloroso and Pedro Ximenez sherries.

    The nose on this whiskey is bright and fresh, reminiscent of expressed grapefruit peel and maple sap. The palate starts with candied orange peel before richer, fruitier notes of blackberry jam and maraschino cherries appear. The finish stays on the tongue long after swallowing with hints of chestnut honey and tiramisu.

    Whiskey No. 14

    50% alc. by vol

    Presenting Untitled Whiskey No. 14, a 6-year old wheated bourbon rested for an additional year in barrels previously used to mature red wine Bordeaux-style blends from RdV Vineyards in Delaplane, Virginia.

    The nose on this whiskey is loaded with summer berries, primarily strawberries and currants. Upon sipping, the first flavors that appear are spicy cinnamon candy and sweet orange, which proceed into the bright acidity of rose wine and the richness of raw honey. The finish lingers with hints of plum and toffee.

    Whiskey No. 15

    52.5% alc. by vol

    Untitled Whiskey No. 15 begins as a wheated bourbon aged 7 years in charred new American oak. It was then sequentially finished in Ruby Port and Cognac casks before resting in barrels that had previously aged our own District Made Rye Whiskey.

    This whiskey is bold and flavorful in every facet. The nose begins with baking spice aromatics of cinnamon and clove. The first sip continues the spice-filled journey suggesting cardamon, nutmeg, and mulled cider before escalating to the lengthy finish of Mexican chocolate and red hot candies. While the smooth character of the whiskey belies its robust strength, this is an reflective sipper that will warm the soul.
