The Casey Jones Family story begins during Prohibition when Al Capone favored a particular Moonshine that came from Golden, Pond Kentucky. The reason for this was due to Casey’s custom stills. Apparently, revenue, tax officers could tell a Casey still just by looking at it because they were square! For over 30 years Casey Jones built stills all over Kentucky only using copper. He refused to use steel even though it was cheaper. He built these copper stills in 3-piece setups so they were easy to move and in all different sizes. Some of them even had handles! They were literally meant to fit in the back of a truck. He built his last still in 1967 but his grandson Arlon Casey Jones wanted to follow in his footsteps and make whiskey again. One of the original square stills is still on display.
This is wheated straight Bourbon. The mash bill is only disclosed as bloody butcher corn and wheat, apparently, there is no rye.
Brand Tasting Notes: Velvety smooth with subtle sweetness, slight nutty body & distinct caramel.
Holly’s Tasting Notes: Nuts and vanilla. Very creamy on the nose. The palate is a bit dryer but still silky with pecan ice cream, vanilla, and almond butter with a bit of ginger and oak spice on the finish.
