Wilderness Trail Straight High Rye is a small grain Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, offered as a Small Batch Bottled in Bond, up to 18 barrels per batch, which was the result of one fermenter.
The goal of the Small Batch is to capture the total essence of more complex notes from multiple barrels from distillate of the same fermenter. Wilderness Trail decided to release the Small Batch Bourbon as a Bottled in Bond so fans of their Wheated Small Batch Bourbon can do a side-by-side comparison.
