Daddy Rack Tennessee Straight Whiskey recently began offering its first-ever allocated release, Daddy Rack Single Barrel Cask Strength.
Seven single barrels, ranging from 121 to 126 proof, have been sent to Tennessee’s bottle shops and whiskey destinations.
Crafted with high-grade corn from local farmers, the limited edition was distilled and aged for four years in charred level 3 new American oak barrels. It was then double mellowed for a smooth and flavorful finish.
Only seven barrels are available for the Tennessee market. Each barrel features its own distinct flavor.
“I can’t take all the credit for the Single Barrel Cask Strength of Daddy Rack Tennessee Straight Whiskey,” said Master Maker and Blender J. Arthur Rackham. “All the work was done by my friends and team at the distillery. My work was to pick the casks that were exceptional, I marked these barrels with XX. I think everyone thought I was marking barrels with kisses at first. But they knew I shared my appreciation for their great work. These seven barrels are my personal picks, each finished with a light second maple charcoal filtration (Lincoln County process).”
Daddy Rack Tennessee Straight Whiskey launched in Tennessee in September of 2020. Leaning on what’s described as purity and flavor nuances, all barrels chosen for Daddy Rack are aged for a minimum of three years, then blended by Rackham to produce a smooth, 80-proof Tennessee whiskey.
Daddy Rack’s whiskey is made with Grade 1 locally-farmed corn, sour mash fermentation and lightly rectified copper double distillation. It is also filtered using Lincoln County maple charcoal slow filtration before aging in new American oak barrels.
