The new Calumet Farm 15 Year is an unusal release from this upstart Kentucky based brand. Both the highest proof and highest age for the brand to date, this is great old Kentucky Bourbon bottled without chill filteration. The Single Rack is a reference to source of the batch being from a single rack in the rickhouse, meaning all aged in the same center part of the warehouse, which lends itself to longer aging as compared to the top floors. Calumet Farm is a famous horse farm and their famous pedigree has allowed them access that few others have. Distilled and aged in Bardstown entirely in 2006, only 19 barrels were used in the production of this batch. At the time only one distillery was operating in the area, so we can assume this is good Barton juice. The mashbill is 74% corn, 18% rye and 8% malted barley. History of the farm, "William Monroe Wright established Calumet Farm in 1924 on a small farm in Lexington, Ky. After Wright’s death in 1933 his son Warren began to move the farm’s business toward Thoroughbred racing. After developing the farm’s stock and pedigree for a short time the Wrights hire famed horse trainer Ben A. Jones. Through dedication passion and hard work the farm began an unparalleled ascent eventually topping the horse racing world. This rise to glory would cement Calumet Farm as one of the most dominant names in horse racing history. Over the decades that came the farm produced 2 Triple Crown winners, 8 Kentucky Derby winners and 8 Preakness winners."
