Living up to its namesake, Soaring Spice highlights an array of spices in its flavor profile.

According to the company’s press release, Soaring Spice is one of eight bottles in Lost Lantern’s “Summer of Bourbon” release collection. It is one of two blends, with the other six releases being single barrels. Soaring Spice combines four barrels from Frey Ranch Distillery in Nevada that were chosen for their rich baking spice flavors. The release is a total of 900 bottles. 

Frey Ranch Distillery is an estate distillery located in northern Nevada. On this 165 year old, 1,500-acre family farm, they grow all of their grains, malt their barley onsite, and the whiskey is both produced and aged on their grounds. The whiskey goes through both a continuous still and pot still. In 2006, they became the first licensed distillery in Nevada since the advent of Prohibition. Initially distilling vodka, they produced their first batch of bourbon in 2015 and released it to market in 2020. Since then, the distillery has gained more popularity as they continue to expand into new markets. 

This particular blend of only four barrels lives up to its name. It’s spice forward from beginning to end, with layers of baking spices including clove, allspice, and cinnamon throughout. Orange peel, charred oak, graham cracker, and caramel also creep in, providing balance and a degree of complexity. The sip is punchy at times, which isn’t surprising at over 127 proof, but may be a bit too much for some drinkers. Finally, the heavy spice helps create an extremely long, spicy finish that will please those who enjoy a robust, lingering ending to the sip. Overall it’s a well done blend that drinks exactly as its name suggests.
