Woodinville Whiskey Straight Bourbon
Bourbon /45% ABV / Washington, United States
- Washington, United States
- Tasting Notes
- Bold, Smoky, Toasty, Woody
Awarded the Best Straight Bourbon Double Gold Medal by the San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2020 This truly small-batch bourbon starts with traditionally grown corn, rye & malted barley. All of our staple grains are cultivated exclusively for us on the Omlin Family farm in Quincy, Washington. The grains are mashed, distilled, and barreled in our Woodinville distillery, then trucked back over the Cascade Mountains to our private barrel houses, where Central Washington’s extreme temperature cycles promote the extraction of natural flavors from the oak. Prior to being coopered, the barrel wood is seasoned in open air, rain, wind, sun, and snow for eighteen months, softening the wood’s harsh tannins. The barrels are then slowly toasted and heavily charred to further enrich the wood’s desirable flavors.View all products by WoodinvilleCalifornia Residents: Click here for Proposition 65 WARNING

Good smooth Bourbon. Better with a chaser than straight shot neat. Really good whiskey doesn’t need anything if smooth enough. Very decent for price! Wouldn’t go past the $33, some selling very high!

This bourbon is fantastic and now a staple in my home bar. A friend told me to try it and now I’m hooked. It’s real craft whiskey and truly handmade in small-batches in Washington state. Apparently, Dave Pickerell was a mentor to the 2 gentleman that established Woodinville in 2010. If you haven’t tried this bourbon: do it now. You won’t look back.
Rare find. What a Gem!
Because of the liquor’s aging process variation, bourbon’s colors range from light amber to dark caramel and each bottle must contain at least 40% ABV. Bourbon can only be called bourbon if it’s aged in an oak barrel; barrels must be new and are pre-charred to help the liquid extract as much flavor as possible from the wood.
While both whiskey and bourbon are made from the same base ingredients (a predominantly corn mash, yeast and water), a spirit can only be called bourbon if it’s crafted in the United States, surpasses a minimum 40% ABV and is aged in new, charred, white oak barrels. Bourbons are generally on the younger side of the whiskey family (compared to older whiskies like scotch) and thus deliver a sweeter profile.
Raise a glass to science: While rye, barley and wheat all contain the gluten protein, the actual gluten is removed during the bourbon’s distillation process, in which the gluten molecules are separated from the actual distillate used to make the final product.
