BAXUS COLLECTOR'S PACKAGE

Lot # 16 (Sale Order: 16 of 37)      

This package includes three collector's bottles: ...more Bardstown Bourbon Company Steve Nally's Legacy Release 50th Anniversary Straight Bourbon Whiskey - Hand signed by Steve Nally The Bardstown Bourbon Company's "Steve's Legacy" is a tribute to the illustrious 50-year distilling career of Steve Nally. This unique blend marries two five-year bourbons from Bardstown's own production with a 15-year Kentucky Straight Bourbon from an undisclosed source. After a 25-day finish in French Oak barrels, it emerges with the lightness reminiscent of an Irish whiskey, yet retains the signature sweet body of a classic bourbon. Released in 2022, this bottle not only honors the golden anniversary of Steve Nally's distinguished journey in the world of distilling but also carries his personal signature, making it a collector's dream. Steve's dedication, from his early days at Maker's Mark to his instrumental role at Bardstown, is encapsulated in this bottle, a testament to his enduring passion and mastery in whiskey-making. Jim Beam Lineage 15 Year, Travel Retail Exclusive Jim Beam Lineage is a 15-year-old bourbon, marking a special collaboration between master distillers Fred and Freddie Noe. This unique blend, distilled in 2004, represents the combined expertise of the 7th and 8th generation family of distillers. Available exclusively in travel retail, its profile boasts notes of peanut shells, apple, and cherry. The palate delivers classic Beam characteristics: peanut brittle, charred oak, and cherry syrup, complemented by warm fudge. The finish is robust with old oak, wood spice, and leather. At 111 proof a touch of water brings out its depth, making Lineage a notable representation of the Beam family's distilling tradition. Buffalo Trace Experimental Collection 6.5 Yr Old - 15 Minute Infrared Light Wave Barrel A masterpiece from Buffalo Trace's Experimental Collection, this bourbon marries tradition with innovation. Crafted in 2009 with the Independent Stave Company, it underwent a unique infrared light wave treatment before charring, aiming to unlock distinctive oak flavors. Filled with Buffalo Trace’s Bourbon Mash #1, and exposed to 15 minutes of varied wave frequencies, the result is a bourbon with a floral aroma, harmoniously blending oak, tannins, dry raisin, and sweet caramel. Aged over six years, it epitomizes Buffalo Trace's pioneering spirit and dedication to exceptional whiskey-making. A collector's delight and a testament to innovation in bourbon craftsmanship.

SINGLE CASK NATION 24 YEAR KENTUCKY STRAIGHT BOURBON

Lot # 19 (Sale Order: 19 of 37)      

A rare gem, this bourbon boasts a rich history, distilled at the renowned DSP-KY-31 before the tragic fire of 1997. This spirit began its journey aging in Kentucky for 12...more years, before being transported to Scotland for another 12 years, benefiting from the temperate Scottish climate. This unique aging process imparts a flavor profile that's both deep and nuanced. On the nose, it reveals wood smoke, caramel apple, and hints of cherry cola. The palate is a symphony of dried berries, vanilla ice cream, and deep oak, with a soft, marshmallow-like texture. Its finish is pleasantly sweet, with notes of honeyed oak and a touch of baking spice. A bourbon that challenges conventions, it's a testament to the art of whiskey-making, and a must-have for enthusiasts and collectors alike. 1 of 300.

UNOPENED 100TH KENTUCKY DERBY 1974 JIM BEAM DECANTER

Lot # 20 (Sale Order: 20 of 37)      

As we approach the 150th anniversary of the Kentucky Derby, now is your chance to collect an unopened Jim Beam whiskey decanter commemorating the 100th running of the Ken...moretucky Derby in 1974 (the year Cannonade won). Two unglazed horseheads on the front of the decanter depict the first Derby winner Aristides, and the 100th winner, with a little sticker with Cannonade's name (presumably original to the bottle, applied post-race). The tax stamp and bottle seal are intact and the decanter comes with its original bag. While we can’t see how much bourbon is in the decanter, based on weight, we estimate the decanter to be 90% full. Decanter holds 4/5 quart of 100 month old 86 proof Jim Beam Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey.

RABBIT HOLE MIZUNARA FOUNDER'S COLLECTION

Lot # 21 (Sale Order: 21 of 37)      

This is a Limited Edition, Founder's Proof 20/23. ...more For this Founder's Collection edition, Rabbit Hole's founder, Kaveh Zamanian, an avid collector of rare bottles and barrels of whiskey, has selected a handful of 15-year-old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey barrels from his personal trove and finished them in casks made of Japanese Mizunara Oak, the most elusive and coveted barrels on the planet, to create this one-of-a-kind double oaked cask strength bourbon. Named after Japan’s indigenous wood, Mizunara is a unique type of white oak. Mizu translates to water, while nara means oak. This luxurious wood grows in the northernmost island of Japan. Mizunara Oak is more porous and delicate than European or American Oak which means only the most-skilled master coopers can make barrels fit for aging fine whiskey. It takes between 200 and 500 years for this elusive oak tree to reach maturity. Only then is it ready to become a barrel. This is Rabbit Hole's most rare whiskey. The best of the best. Never to be offered again. Whiskey, weather, and wood, have gracefully converged to create only 1403 bottles of this exceptional Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. Aged for 15 years in new American Oak and 1 additional year in new Japanese Mizunara Oak, this double naked cask strength bourbon is a once-in-a-lifetime whiskey only a very few will experience. Deep shades of mahogany with henna accents foreshadow the smooth, thick mouthful of this luxurious whiskey. Each sip greets you with a nose of banana, apple, pear, and cherry balanced by notes of mint, pepper, wood, and vanilla, before filling your palate with a sophisticated mix of earthy confectionery flavors. Tobacco and oak linger as hints of custard, nutmeg, and cinnamon give way to honey, rose, and currant, then fade into a long buttery finish. It is not merely a drink. It is the pinnacle of quality and craftsmanship. A true masterpiece.
