Description

Spirits Industry veteran Dave Schmier began Proof & Wood in 2015, with the goal of compiling a portfolio of some of the best spirits in the world through the time-honored tradition of independent blending and bottling. Although the cornerstone of the company’s selection is American whiskey, its spirits span a range of categories. A focus on aging, blending, and bottling rather than distilling—quite literally the proof and wood involved in the crafting of these spirits—has resulted in a curation of stellar distillates that are must-haves for cocktailing and sipping alike.

Taste
  • This selection from Proof and Wood’s Curated Collection is a blend of American Whiskies; the second release in under the ‘Seasons’ label. It features a spirit aged for an unusually long period of time (a TN Bourbon from 2003 that has endured over 72 seasons in barrel) balanced with younger whiskies.
  • Aged 8–18 years
  • Composed of Kentucky whiskey distilled from 99% corn in 2013, bourbon (mash bill of 75% corn, 21% rye, 4% barley) distilled in Indiana in 2015, American Light Whiskey distilled in Indiana in 2007, and Tennesse bourbon distilled in 2003.
  • Finished in used American rye barrels for 8 weeks; blended and bottled in 2021

Holly’s Tasting Notes: Pine Cones, roasted almonds, and cashews. Lemon and vanilla creep in alongside for sweetness with the pine, such a fresh smell! The palate is softer at first with caramel and nougat. Candy sweetness as well, Cracker Jack caramel popcorn. The finish shows more rye spice again with a long, dry herbal and menthol quality.
