The Doc Swinson’s Collection began with an extremely small cache of Bourbon Barrels that were just too good to pass up. It has since grown into a unique and on occasion extremely rare, collection of American whiskies. The proof is in the palate. Each whiskey brought in is personally tasted by the three of us at Doc Swinson’s. If it’s good we will find a place for it in either the Flagship, Exploratory or Rare Release series.
When it comes to finishing techniques, we look to the old-world traditions that have stood the test of time, from Scottish whiskey blenders to the timeless sherry pyramids of the Spanish solera. However, sometimes we stumble upon a whiskey that needs no perfecting and we simply bottle at cask strength.
Whatever whiskey comes through these doors, our small group of tastemakers at Doc’s work hard to create flavor profiles that hold our expectations of great whiskey to a higher standard; and that starts by always letting the whiskey shine.
95% Rye and 5% Malted Barley
51% Rye, 45% Corn and 4% Malted Barley
Aged Up to 7 years old before entering Solera
Solera Est. 2020 and will continue to age/mature with every cascading pull/bottling
We handmade our own Solera Pyramids of Rum casks to age Doc’s Alter Ego Rye blend, we used a blend of 3 Ryes aged 3, 4 & 6yrs w/ two mashbills, of 95% and 51% Rye. We used our old bourbon barrels (13yr Seagram Bourbon, 12yr TN Bourbon, and MANY more) to age our Rum blend (Trinidadian, Crucians, Venezuelan, Jamaican, etc.), some of the Rum was aged in those Bourbon barrels for upwards of 7yrs.
Now we have a traditional (Rum cask) Solera system where we pull only a fraction of the oldest barrels (then refill with portions of the younger barrels) to create our Rye aged in Rum casks!
