Tasting Notes

In keeping with Fort Hamilton’s love of rye, Fort Hamilton Double Barrel Bourbon boasts a high-rye mash bill. This cocktail-friendly vatting is comprised of two bourbons; the first is a New York-distilled whiskey made with New York grains in a mash bill of 25% rye, 70% corn, and 5% malted barley. The other bourbon comes from MGP in Indiana. This MGP whiskey, with a mash bill of 36% rye, 60% corn, and 4% malted barley was hand-selected by Fort Hamilton founder, Alex Clark. The combination of these two distillates results in a distinct bourbon with aromas of cardamom, turmeric, and apricot-chocolate bars with green peppercorn and orange zest on the palate. With its high-rye backbone, this bourbon makes an effortless Old Fashioned. Non-chill filtered and 46% ABV.
