On Monday, Firefly Distillery is releasing a very limited run of their special Barrel Proof Bourbon. Limited to 192 bottles, the bourbon is aged for six years, selected by the Firefly team, and bottled at cask strength of 121.2 proof.
Cask-strength provides a pure form of the bourbon, according to a press release, and “This particular cask was identified as unique with its composition, tasting notes and aging process.”
“We released our first cask strength bourbon last year and it sold out within 24 hours,” said head distiller and general manager, Jay Macmurphy in the release. “What really drew us to this barrel for our most prized pick this year was the lingering complex finish of cocoa nib, and robust tobacco and herbal notes.”
Each bottle of bourbon is hand-labeled with its proof and batch number and sealed with black wax to preserve its flavors.
Bottles are limited to one per person and available only at the distillery at 4201 Spruill Ave. in the Park Circle neighborhood of North Charleston.
