Charbay R5 Whiskey 750ml Bottle
13th Generation Master Distiller Marko Karakasevic, who pioneered the idea of distilling bottle-ready beer to make whiskey, double-distilled this lot in the family’s classic Alambic Charentais pot still from Bear Republic’s award-winning Racer 5 IPA® beer (7% abv) in April 2012. Aged in French Oak for 28 months, Lot No. 3 has its own character: it’s more deeply spiced with a dark green almost herbal aroma, and the malty, hoppy, herbaceous, soft dried papaya flavors are a touch more subdued than earlier Lot releases.
