Boondocks Cask Strength 11 Year Old American Whiskey was a surprising item. Created by Royal Wine Corporation, it's stats make it a light whiskey: 80 to 90% corn, some rye and malted barley in the mashbill; distilled to above 160 proof; and aged in used oak barrels.

Tasting notes

Though the proof is high, the whiskey feels soft and pillowy in the mouth. It's a deft balance of malty corn cereal, milk chocolate, maple and vanilla sweetness mixed with earthier notes of oak, spice and leatheriness. Only a faint hot tickle catches the back of the throat at the end, though flavorwise, the finish comes up a bit short.

Why the name Boondocks?

Distilleries need plenty of room to operate and good, abundant water sources. Close proximity to grain supplies and to farmers who were willing to feed the spent mash to their livestock were also a must. Therefore, historically, it was prudent and practical to build distilleries in rural areas…or “the boondocks”. Boondocks sources its whiskeys from distilleries that are, for the most part, outside the city limits or in the boondocks.
