We don’t know much about Frank August but we do know that each batch is blended with no more than 10-15 barrels, and comes in a container that’s described as being “intentionally crafted to function as a beautiful decanter. Along with a heavy-weight brass closure, discrete precious metal gold decoration, and a clear back label that peels away effortlessly, leaving zero residue. The CEO and co-founder is Johnathan Crocker who comes from a marketing background. A minimalist bottle design, custom-made too, as the brand puts it, reflect its “philosophy of modernity and belief that less is more”. “America’s Spirit. Be Frank.”
Case Study 01 | Mizunara, Japanese Oak | Sourced from a Kentucky Distillery in Bardstown
For the foundational release of ‘Case Study’, Frank August hand-selected 5 barrels to be finished with Mizunara, Japanese Oak. Due to the porous nature of Mizunara, each of the 5 barrels was tested every 30 days to monitor the development of the flavor profile that was being impacted by this rare and beautiful wood. After an undisclosed time, the flavor profile evolved into a beautiful bend of butterscotch and baking spices.
Brand Tasting Notes: The nose opens up with butterscotch before some mild rye spices make their way forward. The palate has an immediate warm, smooth, butterscotch profile that hits the front of your tongue, before slowly moving toward the mid-palate, where notes of apple and mild spices begin to pick up. As the whiskey coats the mouth and moves to the back of your tongue, there are hints of mint and pepper, before notes of butterscotch and caramel make their return. The finish is beautiful and pronounced which evolves with the time between each drink. While notes of butterscotch persist, the strength of the 114.4 proof provides an ideal balance that warms your mouth and chest and highlights some of the softer baking spice notes.
