Maisano's Maker's Private Select Barrel

Maisano's Maker's Private Select Barrel

Jonathan Maisano spent the afternoon at the Maker's Mark Distillery in January tasting through 5 different Bourbons, each finished in a barrel made with one of the below stave types. He then combined the whiskies to achieve a unique flavor profile, once the right balance was achieved a used Maker’s Mark barrel was deconstructed, Jonathan then lowered in the following ten staves; 1 Sp Toasted French Spice, which is cooked in a convection oven over a long period of time, 1 P2 Baked American Pure 2, American oak that’s convection-cooked on low heat for a long time, 2 Maker’s 46 seared French oak staves, 3 Cu a French oak stave that’s seared on high heat over a short period of time, 3 Mo Roasted French Mocha, which is treated with a short burst of extreme heat. The barrel was then reassembled and filled with fully matured Maker’s Mark at cask strength and aged 9 additional weeks in Maker’s limestone cellar to extract more flavor. The 10 finishing staves can be any combination of five flavor profiles chosen especially for this program. With 1,001 possible stave combinations we hope you enjoy this custom crafted Bourbon created by Jonathan Maisano for all of his customers Maisano's Fine Wine and Spirits to enjoy.

The Maisano Hand Select 1792 Full Proof Bourbon Has Arrived!

The Maisano Hand Select 1792 Full Proof Bourbon Has Arrived!

We are excited to announce that Jonathan was able to taste and select one of the first barrels that Barton Distillery (owned by Sazerac / Buffalo Trace) has allowed a customer to hand select and it has just arrived! The Full Proof 1792 is bottled at 125 proof the same proof that this Bourbon originally went in to the barrel at. This barrel was hand selected by Jonathan in June and comes from the 6th floor of Warehouse Z (the original home of 1792). When Jonathan tasted this barrel it was 127 proof so what you get to enjoy is basically barrel proof 1792 Bourbon with 8 years & 6 months of age. Enjoy lots of aromas and flavors of chocolate covered cherry, vanilla, baking spices with a touch of fresh cut wood. Great balance of sweet and rich flavors, it is powerful but graceful. Pick up a bottle to enjoy with the beautiful cool weather this weekend!
