Retired — 2021 Single Cask #3: Boulder Spirits

Bourbon At Its Peak, From The Peaks

Boulder Spirits was founded by Scotsman Alastair Brogan, who has brought Scottish whiskymaking traditions to the Colorado Rockies. This dry, high-elevation environment makes for bold and unique spirits.

We are proud to have this unique straight bourbon whiskey as our first selection from the state of Colorado, one of the hotbeds of the whiskey renaissance taking shape all over the country. And this whiskey captures just why we’re so excited about Boulder Spirits, and about Colorado whiskey in general: it does something new.

Befitting Alastair’s roots in Scotland, Boulder uses a traditional Forsyths Scottish still and much of its output is Colorado single malt. So it’s only fitting that this straight bourbon whiskey, which was aged for 5 years in a 53-gallon new American oak cask, has a very unusual high-malt mashbill: 51% corn, 44% malted barley, and 5% rye. That’s the highest proportion of malt we’ve ever seen in a bourbon, and it works spectacularly well.

The result, after 5 years of aging at over a mile in elevation, is a very big, rich, juicy straight bourbon whiskey. Hearty oak surrounds chocolate mousse, maple syrup-drenched waffles, fudge, and toffee.

With a natural cask strength of 69.3%, this is a bourbon for people who love big bourbon, with a flavor profile that could only come from the mountains.
