Wolf Spirit Distillery of Eugene, Oregon, recently introduced Puncher’s Chance, pure Kentucky Straight Bourbon. A marriage of 4-, 5-, and 6-year-old Kentucky Straight bourbons, it leads with caramel, spicy, slightly sweet, and creamy vanilla notes. The palate shows complex oaky sweetness alongside orange, dark chocolate, leather, and baking spices. The finish is long with sweet maple and sugar notes.
With suggested retail pricing of $34.99/750mL and packed 6 to a case, 90-proof Puncher’s Chance™ will be distributed or brokered by Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits in several states, and present in other states with Atlantic Beverage (MA/RI), Badger (WI), and Empire Distributors, Inc. (GA/TN). Initial shipments went to FL, TX, CA, KY, WI, MA, RI, MN, IN, and MI, with a second round to follow mid-September. One early customer is Liquor Barn, which will stock Puncher’s Chance in all of its stores, as well as debut an exclusive single barrel, cask-strength expression Puncher’s Chance in mid-September.
