On today’s episode of A Tasting at The Murder Table, we’re sampling Samuel Maverick Barrel Proof Straight Bourbon Whiskey (here’s their website: https://maverickwhiskey.com/) from San Antonio, Texas, a relatively new distillery that’s located in a historic bank building that’s just a stones throw away from The Alamo.
This whiskey clocks in at a hefty 57% ABV and comes in a really pretty shiny package. We do love whiskey with a “5” in it!
Here are a few words about this whiskey taken directly from a recent press release:
The Samuel Maverick Barrel Proof Straight Bourbon Whiskey is distilled from a mash of 72% Texas-grown corn, 18% rye, and 10% malted barley. It is aged a minimum of two years in new charred White Oak barrels. The Texas Barrel Proof Straight Bourbon Whiskey is non-chill filtered and hand-bottled at barrel proof (57% alcohol by volume / 114 proof) ensuring the true, bold flavor of this Texas bourbon.
“To produce our Samuel Maverick Barrel Proof Straight Bourbon Whiskey, we expertly select the best barrels of Certified Texas Whiskey that are brought in from a Texas distillery,” says head distiller Kevin Graham. “Once aged, we expertly blend the right barrels to bring out the sweet caramel flavors balanced with just the right pop of spice.”
We were lucky enough to try this whisky during a Zoom meeting with Kevin Graham a few weeks ago and were quite pleased with how it tasted. To find out what we thought of it on the second go around, click the play button on the following video:
