Whiskey Review: Filmland Spirits “Town At The End Of Tomorrow” Kentucky Bourbon

Tasting Notes:

About:
Mash bill of 78% corn, 13% rye, 9% malted rye. Aged 9 years in American White Oak. ABV 47% (94-Proof). Limited release at a SRP of $109.99.
Appearance:
A bright golden wheat yellow.
Nose:
The whiskey presents as light and refreshingly fruity on the nose. The aroma of summertime raspberries and slightly vegetal notes are strong, with some yeasty elements that give way to an earthy sweetness.
Palate:
There’s a current that runs through the whiskey. Sweeter at the front of the palate, with the taste of seedy dark berries and cocoa powder, moving into pithy, orange peel notes, finishing strong with spicy heat on the back of the palate.
Finish:
Comments:
I personally love everything about Filmland Spirits. It’s a strong bonus that I find the whiskey so well-balanced and tasty, because even if I didn’t, I would support such a creative and exciting concept. The artwork of the label, the appealing aesthetic of the heavy bottle, the immersive nature of the marketing campaign – everything hits the spot for this whiskey and cinema lover.rnrnWhile I always like to know a little more about the actual process of the liquor, I give Filmland a pass for creating such an exciting experience.

Filmland Spirits, a newer non-distilling whiskey producer founded in 2020, offers a unique blend of cinematic and whiskey appreciation, taking inspiration from classic B-movies and focusing on innovative storytelling in the branding and marketing of the whiskey. With two new releases recently, Filmland Spirits has created two new worlds, “a wildly creative pairing of an original retro B-Movie concept … complete with monsters, robots and over-the-top plots … with a delicious and unique whiskey.” The “Town at the End of Tomorrow,” a Kentucky Bourbon, and Ryes of the Robots Extended Cut.”

Filmland Spirits is headquartered in Los Angeles, and the small-batch team’s founder and CEO of Filmland Spirits, Troy Bolotnik, says of the company’s first aged bourbon expression, “Town at the End of Tomorrow is a celebration of bourbon’s past and future and to bring this tale to life, we knew we needed a Kentucky product. We found a blockbuster liquid worthy of our concept and are thrilled to premiere it in Bardstown, Kentucky during the Bourbon Festival.”

While there isn’t a huge emphasis on the process of the distillation of the whiskey within the promotional world of Filmland Spirits, the script is the king here.

“The Town at the End of Tomorrow” isn’t just an exciting story, it’s a truly delicious bourbon. The whiskey is aged for 9 years in American White Oak barrels and bottled at 94-proof. The mash bill comes in at 78% corn, 13% rye, and 9% malted barley, and the tasting experience was only heightened by enjoying the theatrics that come along with the brand – a trailer, storyboard, and script – fully invoking the spirit of old Hollywood.
