BALTIMORE, MD – Baltimore Spirits Company (BSC) has announced the release of a new addition to their Post-Epoch line; a series of their award-winning Epoch Rye whiskeys finished in alternative barrels. Post Epoch Rye, Batch #5 is available beginning September 18. BSC also announced that from this point forward, all of their future Post-Epoch releases will be aged a minimum of three years.
Post Epoch Rye, Batch #5 has been specially aged for three years total with the last 12 months taking place in a French oak barrel formerly containing Pineau De Charentes, which is a fortified wine similar to sherry from the Cognac region of France. The process of extra aging allows the whiskey to absorb ample flavor from the barrel, creating a distinct and rare type of Rye Whiskey with a sweet and fruity profile with a silky texture.
“I’ve personally been looking forward to this one for a full year,” said Baltimore Spirits Company co-founder and CEO Max Lents. “The Pineau De Charentes barrel is massively expressive in the final product.”
Post Epoch Rye, Batch #5 is the latest in a string of whiskey releases from BSC and the fourth this year. Post Epoch Rye Batch #5 is available for pre-order now and will be released at Baltimore Spirit Company’s tasting room this Friday in the Union Collective for $59.99.
