“Special B” Single Barrel Straight Bourbon Whiskey is the first release from Liquid Riot’s Michaud Family Reserve series. “Special B” refers to a specialty Belgian malt often used in some of the most rich and flavorful Belgian beers. A small addition in the grain bill adds a subtle richness and unique depth of flavor. Local Maine-grown corn as well as a high percentage of Maine grown wheat from Buck Farms rounds out the recipe for this wheated Straight Bourbon.
After resting 5 years in a single new, charred, American oak barrel at our waterfront distillery surrounded by the salty sea air, this edition was bottled undiluted at 134 proof barrel strength. The result is a deep amber color, with rich and complex aromas, tremendous depth of flavor, and a smooth and lasting finish.
