Inspired by America's rich rye heritage, Robert Cooper crafted Lock, Stock & Barrel Limited Release 13 Year Old Straight Rye Whiskey. Cooper is a third-generation distiller - his grandfather, Maurice, founded Cooper Brewery in the early 20th century and his father, Sky, worked at a distillery known as Charles Jacquin et Cie. Lock, Stock & Barrel Limited Release 13 Year Old Straight Rye Whiskey is crafted in Pennsylvania, the birthplace of rye whiskey, from 100% rye grains. Following distillation, the rye is aged in new, charred American oak casks for 13 years before being bottled at nearly barrel proof (101. 3 proof). As a result of its extra-long maturation, the rye has an aroma of salted caramel, buttered popcorn and toffee. The aroma gives way to complex notes of sweet vanilla, milk chocolate, roasted coffee and honeyed oak, which are nicely balanced with a subtle spicy undertone, and lead a sweet, elegant finish.
