Retired — 2020 Single Cask #4: Ironroot Republic

Over-the-top and welcoming, just like Texas

We’ll be honest: We didn’t plan to have a straight corn whiskey as one of our first releases. But then we visited Ironroot Republic Distilling on the North Texas plains, just a few miles from the Oklahoma border. We were hunting bourbon, not straight corn whiskey. But the Likarish brothers, who run the distillery, insisted we try this cask. Then they insisted again. They said it was special. They were right.

This cask’s incredibly rich flavors — bold and spicy, but with hints of violet — represent Texas whiskey at its finest: over-the-top and welcoming at the same time. More than that, it represents exactly what we want to accomplish with Lost Lantern. There isn’t very much of it, and even now corn whiskey isn’t very well known, but this cask is truly one-of-a-kind.
