“We are super excited to add these two new expressions to the Same Old Moses whiskey line-up!” said Derek Duty, WanderFolk GM/Director of Sales and Marketing, in a prepared statement. “The rye is both complex & perfectly balanced to be enjoyed neat or to upgrade any whiskey cocktail. Same Old Moses PX Sherry-Finished Bourbon truly is an extremely special expression of our blending process. The liquid sings with beautifully developed PX Sherry notes accenting the key qualities of our double-barreled bourbon.”

The Same Old Moses label, for the curious, is tied to a Kansas grocer said to made his way to the newly opened Oklahoma Territory. He noted for “establishing the first legal saloon in The Territory, roughly 100 yards from the distillery that crafts the whiskey named in his tireless pursuit ’s honor today. That saloon was Same Old Moses.”
