J. Mattingly 1845 Distillery Gives Back to Veterans with Two Releases

Frankfort, Kentucky-based J. Mattingly 1845 Distillery is honoring military veterans with the release of two limited edition bourbons – 10th Mountain Division Small Batch Bourbon Whiskey and POW/MIA Small Batch Bourbon Whiskey.  Both bourbons are limited editions that went on sale on July 3, and are available now online.    

Only 310 bottles of each expression are available for purchase. A portion of sales from each bottle will go towards Kentucky area Gold Star families, through the nonprofits Three Rangers Foundation and Good Skies for the Good Guys and Gals

The 10th Mountain Division Small Batch Bourbon Whiskey is a blend of seven-year-old barrels bottled at 116 proof. The nose consists of seasoned oak, mellow baking spice, smokiness, almonds and cashews. On the palate, the bourbon is nice and viscous, with caramel and vanilla sweetness up front. Mid palate is characterized by cashews and almonds with nice barrel spice notes. The finish is mid-length, marked by a return of the caramel sweetness, more seasoned oak, and a small hint of the malted barley. 

The POW/MIA Small Batch Bourbon Whiskey is a blend of five-year-old barrels bottled at 126 proof. Notes of caramel and crème brulee, along with apricot and plum can be found on the nose. The palate has a full-bodied texture, giving notes of dark chocolate nibs and roasted peanuts. There are slight notes of oak spice in the middle. The finish is long-lasting, with a return of the maple and caramel sweetness, and notes of stone fruit, particularly apple and pear.  

Pricing is $155 for each 750 mL bottle with $20 from the sales of the 10th Mountain Division Bourbon going towards Three Rangers Foundation and $20 from the sales of the POW/MIA Bourbon going toward the Good Skies for the Good Guys and Gals nonprofit.
