George Dickel has teamed up with the Leopold Bros to produce an innovative rye whisky offering. The release blends George Dickel’s column still rye produced at Cascade Hallow Distillery with Leopold Bros’ Three Chamber Rye to recreate a historic style. This union between column distilled rye and Three Chamber distilled rye turns back the hands of time, returning to an era that saw heavy-bodied rye whisky served at bars and saloons throughout America. The Cascade Hollow component of this blend is a never-before released traditional column still rye.

Bottled at a respectable 55% ABV, this is the newest chapter from Bardstown Bourbon Company. This release features 10yr Tennessee bourbon with an 84% Corn, 8% Rye and 8% Malted Barley mashbill finished in a Kentucky Breakfast Stout barrel from Founder’s Brewing in Grand Rapids, Michigan. KBS has long been a notable release in the beer universe – the stout is coffee and cocoa infused before aging in ex-bourbon barrels. Stout finished whiskey are often polarizing among critics and enthusiasts alike, so let’s dive in and see how it fares.

  • NOSE:

    Sweet and malty on the nose, lots of cocoa, espresso, cinnamon and a touch of praline.


    Long finish, a great blend of tannin, bourbon character, and some malty stout character here. Each stops before becoming overbearing – expert balance.


    I don’t always enjoy beer finishes – they almost always end in a too-sweet, malty, fake chocolate combination of notes that don’t land well. This, on the other hand, works well and while I don’t suspect it will reach the levels of unified glory that Labaude did, it will be polarizing yet delightful to many.
