Sale price$299.00
Sold out

Old Elk Bourbon is a premium bourbon that uses four times more malted barley than traditional recipes, giving it sweeter, lighter notes that these barrels will transfer to your barrel-aged beverage.

Please note: This listing is for Old Elk Bourbon barrels with head bungs plus belly bungs that we drilled at our warehouse. They can be stored horizontally on traditional barrel racks and are backed by our leak-free guarantee. If you want head bung-only barrels, please order from THIS LISTING.

Not all barrels have stamps.

These barrels aged 5 Year Old Elk Blended Straight Bourbon Whiskey, a premium bourbon that has lighter and sweeter flavor notes than many other bourbons. That's because Old Elk uses four times more malted barley than those traditional recipes. Add the softness of malted barley to the spiciness of rye and the richness of corn and you've got a bourbon with a robust taste profile.

Those flavors and aromas are now locked inside the staves of these barrels, just waiting to be imparted on any beer, cider, wine or other beverage you fill them with. The barrels are fresh-dumped, used only once and come to us straight from the distillery.

Tasting notes
Aroma: Sweet vanilla and caramel, clove spice, slight maple, and nutty almond
Taste: Maple syrup, almond, raw bran, chocolate, deep wood, and coconut

Please note: These were originally head bung (top fill) barrels. We have drilled a new bung hole into the side of each barrel for horizontal storage on traditional barrel racks. Watch our video to learn more about this process.

If you want head bung-only barrels, please order from THIS LISTING.

Not all barrels have stamps.
