According to the company, Batch 5 is blended from three bourbon mashbills aged 3–4 years in new American oak barrels and completely uncut and non chill-filtered. The resulting bourbon contains classic bourbon flavors that walk hand in hand with the bourbon’s stout 116 proof. The overall sip is approachable and does a good job of hiding the relative youth of the bourbons in the mix. Penelope calls this their “nightcap bourbon,” and for those looking for an affordable easy to sip bourbon, Batch 5 fits the bill.
