Doc Swinson’s, a Pacific Northwest producer of blended and finished whiskeys, has announced several new whiskeys for the summer of 2023.
A statement from the whiskey maker explained that in this release are three notable finishes that explore the use of casks made from different species of oak, and their effect on the flavor profiles on the bourbons and ryes used.
Doc Swinson’s calls Ferndale, Washington home, and has made whiskey since 2017.
The company’s master blender, Jesse Parker, along with his team looked to create unique blends to satisfy a wide range of whiskey enthusiasts. The three they came up with are:
- French Toasted – Straight bourbon whiskey finished in French oak casks that exhibit a tight grain oak.
- Garryana – Straight bourbon whiskey finished in Garryana oak casks native to the Pacific Northwest, where Doc Swinson’s calls home.
- Bossa Nova – Straight bourbon whiskey finished in Amburana casks, a legume tree native to Brazil.
In addition to these double wood finished products, the company also released new batches of several previously released products, all finished in European fortified wine and other spirits casks.
The statement from Doc Swinson’s noted that these include a Pineau des Charentes barrel finish and a Moscatel barrel finish, as well as their Tres Amigos finish, a blend of rye whiskey finished in rum and añejo tequila casks.
And finishing up their spring releases are new batches of El Cuerpo and La Mente, two from their Alter Ego Triple Cask whiskey.
“We’re thrilled to introduce our new whiskeys for Summer 2023,” Parker said. “These blends represent the exceptional balance of tradition and innovation, and we’re confident that they will exceed our customers’ expectations.”
The new whiskeys are now available in 26 states, as well as in Canada. And the bottles are also available on Doc Swinson’s website.
