NASHVILLE, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--O.H. Ingram River Aged is proud to announce the release of its third annual Flagship Bourbon. Released once-a-year, this extremely limited, premium expression of O.H. Ingram was curated by Founder Hank Ingram and Master Blender Scott Beyer. This year’s batch arrives at 102.3 proof.
“The colder months are here and so is the 2023 Flagship,” said Ingram. “The Flagship Bourbon is a true labor of love, as we go through the barrel selection process with great care and intention. We want every Flagship batch to be distinct. This year features a 12-barrel blend selected from among our favorite barrels, and so I’m proud to let folks experience the complexities and character of the spirit.”
2023 Flagship Bourbon Tasting Notes:
- NOSE: An aroma of vanilla frosting and fresh cut hay mingled with hints of pear and caramel apples.
- PALATE: The palate is dark and rich, with soft baking spices and notes of cocoa and toasted almond.
- FINISH: A long and lingering finish with nuances of brown sugar and honey, all balanced by the gentle embrace of oak.
Earlier this year, O.H. Ingram relocated to Columbus, KY and doubled its capacity for barrel aging. The expansion included a second floating barrelhouse bringing total aging capacity to over 6,000 barrels. The new location can also accommodate more than 15 additional floating barrelhouses.
Moored on the banks of the Mississippi River in Columbus, KY, O.H. Ingram barrels are exposed to the microclimate and humidity of the river, along with its drastic rise and fall, to provoke a unique interaction between oak and spirit. These conditions are not available inside a traditional barrelhouse, and the result is a whiskey with exceptional complexity.
We call it Mellowed on the Mississippi. You can see full details about the unique aging here.
O.H. Ingram is currently available on shelves in Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Minnesota, Tennessee, and Wisconsin. It is also available for online purchase via Seelbach’s.
