Double Barrel 1910 Medianoche | WeldWerks Brewing Co.
Style: Stout - Imperial / Double
Description: As our barrel program has grown and matured over the past five years, so has our appreciation for the spirits originally produced from our casks. When Old Forester® released their 1910 bourbon in late 2018, we quickly fell in love and it has became one of favorites. After we managed to secure a few of the casks used to produce 1910, we knew we wanted to incorporate the same double barrel technique Old Forester uses to produce their unique bourbon. The journey began by aging Medianoche in four freshly emptied 6-11 year-old Kentucky bourbon barrels for 12 months, which feature a heavy toast and light char, identical to the initial casks used for 1910. Then we racked each Medianoche bourbon barrel into a freshly emptied Old Forester 1910 barrel, which are heavily charred and lightly toasted casks used to finish mature Old Forester bourbon for six to nine months. Mirroring their process, this batch of Medianoche was finished in the 1910 barrels for nine months, resulting in over 21 months of barrel aging between the two casks.
