FIVE TRAIL BLENDED AMERICAN WHISKEY RELEASES LIMITED BATCH
FROM THE WIRES
Five Trail Blended American Whiskey is the first full-strength spirit from the iconic Molson Coors Beverage Company. Today, the brand announces the release of its limited Batch 002 blend, created in partnership with Bardstown Bourbon Company.
The second release under the Five Trail banner, Batch 002 blend features an intentional blend of 4-year Indiana wheated bourbon, 4-year Kentucky four grain bourbon, 6-year Colorado single malt, and 12-year Kentucky bourbon. It’s cut to 95 proof with Rocky Mountain Water. The result is a golden amber whiskey with an aroma of sweet caramel, pecans, and biscuit with hints of wood sugar, caramel, apple, white cherry, smoke, ginger, and allspice on the palate. The finish is easy going and lingering with notes of oak, ginger, and nutty balance.
