Benjamin Chapman 4-Year Corn is fitted with a mash of 80% Corn, 11% Rye and 9% Malt. Sourced and produced in the United States, the water source for distillation is Kentucky Limestone Water which imparts important minerals and acts as a unique filter for the base liquid. The primary distillation takes place in a column still with the subsequent distillation in a continuous pot still that acts as a doubler to extract flavors.
After distillation, the whiskey is then placed in bourbon seasoned barrels that had been used to age bourbon for just 2 years from new barrels. The liquid is then aged for four years in barrel, reaching the optimal amount of time for oak influence. The result is a remarkably unique and smooth, small-batch whiskey.
The coat check noticed a small piece of paper fall from the man’s Chesterfield as he dashed out the door. She unfurled it and smiled, revealing a beautifully penned thank-you note, addressed “Dear Whiskey.” The moment bore all the hallmarks of an encounter with the elusive Benjamin Chapman.
Delicate and soft on the entry, tropical notes from the aromas are prominent on the velvety palate with baked upside-down pineapple cake.
