Leopold Bros Cask Strength Straight Bourbon Whiskey 8 Year Old 750ml


SKU: 54868

There is a litany of great things that we can say about the new Leopold Bros 8 year old cask strength Bourbon finished in Three Chamber rye barrels, so we’ll list them here right off the bat:

    -It’s the oldest whiskey ever released from the revered Leopold Bros at 8 years of age.

    -It’s also the highest proof whiskey they’ve ever released at 55% ABV.

    -It may be the most transparent whiskey ever released by any American distillery, with its proof-it bottle tag. Simply hold any smart phone near the tag on the bottle’s neck and a window pops up with an 11 minute video from Todd Leopold and a chemistry book’s worth of stats and specs.

    -It’s the most fairly-priced limited edition Bourbon this year at a more than reasonable $59.99

    -Finally, it’s easily the best whiskey that Leopold Bros has ever released and the best Bourbon we’ve tasted so far in 2024.

    What makes this whiskey so special, you ask?

    It’s the finishing in the Leopold Bros own Three Chamber rye whiskey casks that puts this release over the top. For those who don’t know the story, Todd Leopold resurrected the Three Chamber still from its pre-Prohibition roots almost a decade ago (this video from Eater with over 580,000 views already is worth a watch).

    This one-of-a-kind still creates a whiskey so oily and thick on the palate that even the whiskey’s residue inside the barrel once emptied is enough to beef up a standard Bourbon. And that’s exactly what the Leopolds did. They took their new 8 year pot-distilled Bourbon—which after 7 years is finally starting to evaporate and go up in proof from their barrel entry ABV of 50%—and decanted it into freshly-emptied Three Chamber rye whiskey casks for a finishing period of a few additional months.

    The sweet and supple texture that those casks added to this Bourbon is simply phenomenal.

    It’s a rich, round, mouth-coating Bourbon, loaded with brown sugar and caramel with plenty of sweet spices and just enough pop at 55% ABV. It’s not only the best new Bourbon we’ve tasted this year, it’s the Bourbon we’ve been waiting for Todd Leopold to make since we first fell in love with him and his Denver distillery.

    The only problem is we’ve got a limited amount and the California allocation is already backordered for the next few months. For that reason, we’re limiting the Bourbon to just 1 bottle per customer until more supplies arrive later this summer.

    The stores have a very limited inventory right now, so don’t forget you can use the shipping option to transfer between the warehouse and your preferred pick up location while checking out.

    As an additional incentive, we’ve been told that some of these bottles are from the Bourbon’s initial batch or “first edition,” but you’ll need to scan the bottle’s tag and register it to find out which edition you received!

    We hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
