The American White Oak (Quercus alba) can be found on the Cahaba Bourbon Whiskey. These majestic trees sprout across North America’s eastern and central regions. The acorns produced by the oak are a source of food for birds and mammals within their ecosystem. To be considered a Bourbon, the whiskey must be aged in new charred American White Oak barrels.
Using 51% corn as well as barley, wheat, and rye, this whiskey can be classified as a “Baby Bourbon”. After being aged for only 6 months in new, charred American White Oak Barrels, this title is fitting. Our Bourbon has notes of caramel on the nose, hints of a floral and sweet flavor, and an oaky finish.
