The Engine 49 80 proof Bourbon is a wonderful bottle for both beginner and advanced spirits consumers. The heat and lack of humidity give a very smooth and deep flavor without the typical burn or thin flavor many young bourbons acquire. We keep all our barrels in a warehouse environment that promotes the barrels pulling the spirit into the staves. This gives a very smooth and easy to drink bourbon, that also provides a deep flavor profile. The mash bill is 75% corn and 24% rye with 1% set aside for malted barley to help fermentation. This gives us a unique style that many can enjoy.
