A potpourri of herbs, dried flowers, licorice, candied lemon peel, baklava, and furniture polish on the nose. The palate shows some minerality and is a bit bitter, but has prominent blueberry, grape, and boysenberry flavors, along with licorice, coriander seed, mint, and oak spice. It finishes with dark fruit, menthol, licorice, roasted nuts, and plenty of oak. Takes water well. - "Whiskey Advocate"
Born from Romance: Our Sherry Cask Finished Bourbon is inspired by the wife of our founder, Kaveh Zamanian. Elegant, sweet, and charming, she is the muse behind our brand. A Louisville native, she helped Kaveh fall in love with bourbon, luring him away from his beloved scotch. This simple act of affection evolved into a passion for creating whiskey and led him down a rabbit hole he may have never dared alone.
Inviting to the Senses. Dareringer is perfectly sweet with the smallest kiss of spice. This charming whiskey invites you in with an intoxicating nose of sherry and cherry. On the palate, Dareringer displays elegant flavors of raisins and currants coupled with hints of almond and vanilla. The layers and complexity of this modern whiskey will have you falling in love, whether neat or in a cocktail.
Toasted & Charred Barrels: Developing our super-premium whiskey takes time. We slowly toast our barrels over a wood-fired flame before charring, a process that takes up to 20 minutes per barrel. Toasting coaxes sugars from deep in the fibers of the wood which mingle with the distillate during the aging process, giving our whiskeys unparalleled complexity and flavor.
Rested in Hand-Made PX Sherry Casks from Spain. This super-premium Straight Bourbon Whiskey is carefully crafted by taking fine wheated bourbon aged in alligator char barrels and resting it in hand-made Pedro Ximenez Sherry Casks from Spain’s renown Casknolia Cooperage. We then intimately blend no more than fifteen barrels to produce our desired flavor profile - a true small batch. Every step we take in our whiskey-making process is intentional. When a spirit is made with this kind of love there’s nothing to hide, so we forgo any chill filtering. The omission of this process gives this 93 proof whiskey the most authentic barrel to bottle flavor in the market.
An Unmistakably Balanced Expression. We created Dareringer as an expression of our passion for whiskey and redefining what it can be. Resting this Straight Bourbon Whiskey in Pedro Ximenez Sherry Casks results in an unmistakably balanced expression that blends modern and traditional whiskey making. An entrancing spirit, Dareringer lures you with flavors that please every palate from the novice to the whiskey purest.
