bourbons unique, says Prewitt,
" is the fact that our bourbons are
tripled distilled, a rarity in the
industry. Our uniquely designed
2,000-gallon doubler, named
'Mary' after the matriarch of the
Bowman family, has been proudly
distilling our bourbons and
whiskies for over 30 years, helping
bring out the cherry and apple
characteristics of our distillate. "
KO uses state-of-the-art
Vendome stills as well as
temperature-controlled mash
tanks, says Karlson.
Ironclad Small Batch Bourbon
is double-distilled in a 500-gallon
copper and stainless still.
Barrels: Legal guidelines
call only for " charred new oak
containers, " which leaves great
leeway for creativity.
To char barrels, cooperages
gently toast or ferociously burn
the inside of each barrel. This
burning process adds to the
chemical magic and subtly affects
the palate magic. Char levels
typically range from #1 (burned
for 15 seconds) to #4 (55 seconds),
sometimes up to #5 and higher.
Charring methods can also result
in more surface area for the
liquor to interact with and affect
filtration.
Bourbons from Reservoir
Distillery, says Carpenter, age in
" our unique alligator char barrels
that are a 5+ on the 1-5 char scale. "
Oak: Although barrels made
with American oak are frequently
used for aging bourbon, other
oak trees can find their way to be
used in barrels, too. Of the 600
species of oak, four are widely
used in aging spirits and wine:
American white oak, European
oak, French oak, and Japanese
oak. Each species has a different
chemical composition, and even
the microclimate where a tree
grows can affect its taste and
performance.
Size: In barrels, size matters. In
addition to the standard 53-gallon
barrel, distillers may use smaller
containers, say, from five-gallon
up to 32-gallon.
The greater ratio of oak surface
to whiskey in a smaller barrel
allows for faster aging, especially
beneficial for new distilleries
anxious to get product to market.
The alcohol more quickly draws
out dissolved sugars and other
compounds that contribute
flavors like vanilla, spice and
oak. At the same time, shortened
aging cuts down on oxidation
and maturation processes, which
contribute flavors like leather and
tobacco.
In 2018, the TTB proposed
modifying the definition of
bourbon to require aging in
