|Content||When Alabama moonshiner Clyde May needed to keep his then-illicit barrels of homemade bourbon hidden from the law, he buried them under huge piles of sawdust. Necessity, as it often does, begat innovation as May realized that the whiskey inside the barrels became toastier and more flavorful while it rested under the piles. From this historic process comes?Clyde May's Cask Strength Straight Bourbon,?aged 10 years and bottled at an intense 117 proof, from the Alabama-based distiller, which has been making whiskey since 1946, and marketing it legally since 2001. A limited release of only 3,500 bottles, it offers notes of caramel, chocolate and almonds and a long, rich finish.|
This hand selected barrel produces a deep rich amber color.1792 is full bodied with notes of cinnamon and pepper and lots of brown sugar and hints of maple. Long spicy finish that brings out oak, baking spices, and a dark fruity sweetness.
1792 is the year that Kentucky became a State, and the bottling of this special Bourbon commemorates that date. Aged for eight years, this Bourbon has aromas of corn, caramel and shortbread. Classic balance of spice and oak leads to a long dry finish.
Our American is a pre-prohibition style, short-aged, under 1 year, in American white oak barrels used previously for our 291 Colorado Bourbon. Floral with a buttery mouthfeel, while the copper provides a fresh cut leather finish.
?291 Colorado Whiskey's summer sipping whiskey? great in a cocktail, served neat or over ice.

10th Street's line currently includes two whiskies, both of which are single malt varieties and are ?hand crafted? and distilled in custom cooper pot stills. While the STR Single Malt is non-peated, the Peated Single Malt straddles American and Scottish tradition as it is created with specially peated malt imported from Scotland that the distillers believe is synergistic with San Jose's water and means the water doesn?t need to be treated. The Peated Single Malt Whisky also earned the ?Best in Class? gold medal at the 2018 Whiskies of the World competition, and Double Gold at the New York World Spirits Competition this year.
