Distilled in a custom Scottish copper pot still, Boulder Spirits Straight Bourbon is the result of some of Vapor Distillery’s barrels finally reaching four years of age. The bourbon meets the qualifications to be labeled bottled in bond, and the company chose to highlight that fact. Derived from a non-traditional high malted barley mashbill, the bourbon is nicely developed and very easy to sip. It offers a mixture of tropical fruits and malty notes, but doesn’t stray too far from the more traditional caramel-focused bourbon base. It’s both delicious and unique, and succeeds in piquing my interest in tasting the other spirits being produced by Vapor Distillery.
