Buzzard’s Roost was created by Jason Brauner, the co-owner of the influential Bourbons Bistro in Louisville, KY. The bourbon is originally sourced from MGP before being rebarreled in a brand new charred oak barrel that is custom ordered to Buzzard’s Roost’s specifications. The end result is a rye that has the underpinnings of a classic sweeter MGP rye flavor profile with just a hint of extra oak coming through on the finish. The proof is quite manageable and results in an easy-sipping, everyday rye.
