Your beloved San Antonio distillery, Maverick Whiskey, is excited to announce two new spirits to our inventory line up! Firstly, we have our white rum, a spirit that has been a really fun project to work on. And secondly, we have our straight bourbon whiskey that is finally ready to break free of the barrels in which its been aged.
Samuel Maverick White Rum
Our Maverick Samuel Maverick White Rum is made from imported Columbian Panela, a raw sugar created from boiling down and evaporated cane juice. The rum is column distilled and charcoal filtered for a smooth, round mouthfeel, while retaining the original character of the Panela sugar. The nose is bright and sweet with notes of honey, brown sugar, and citrus peel. On the palate sweetness prevails with the Panela’s flavor prominent along with orange zest and vanilla. The finish is smooth. Spearmint lingers nicely with a hint of more brown sugar. Furthermore, it tastes delicious and is perfect in your next Daiquiri or Mojito.
Samuel Maverick Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Can we get a drum roll please… it’s time for the main event. Our Samuel Maverick’s Straight Bourbon Whiskey is one of our most prized processions because it is our first aged spirit.
This spirit is distilled from a mash of Texas-grown Corn and Rye and aged (yeah we said aged) a minimum of two years in new Charred White Oak Barrels. This bourbon is proofed to 88 (44% alcohol by volume). We us reverse osmosis filtered water so that it sips nicely neat; yet holds up on-the-rocks, or in your favorite whiskey cocktail.
The Bourbon is non-chill filtered ensuring the true bold flavor of this Texas Whiskey. The nose is very sweet with notes of Crème Brûlée, caramel, and stone fruit. Charred oak is prevalent as well. The palate is delightfully smooth with notes of sweet black tea, cola, and cinnamon. The finish, while silky, has the peppery bite of Rye and a touch of menthol. Basically it tastes good, damn good. It deserves to be served neat in a Glencairn, or in a nice Old Fashioned complete with Luxardo Cherry.
