Release 6, The Kelvin Collaboration II
Release 6, Batch 6
THE KELVIN COLLABORATION II
In April of 2019, we released our very first barrel finished whiskey, dubbed THE KELVIN COLLABORATION. The reception was better than we ever could have hoped for. To follow up on that with our first release in 2020, we returned to the same mash bill that made batch 1 so popular and added a twist.
In collaboration with Kelvin Cooperage, we took our now 12 year old high rye Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey and filled three massive Cognac barrels and a selection of dark rum barrels Kelvin Cooperage acquired from the same rum distillery as the barrels used to finish batch 1.
That’s right, a 12 year old Kentucky Straight Bourbon whiskey finished in Cognac and Dark Rum casks. It’s a worthy inheritor of The Kelvin Collaboration name and we’re confident you’ll love the smoky and sweet combination of flavors.
The Kelvin Collaboration II will be available in Kentucky, Tennessee and Seelbachs.com in April of 2020.

TASTING NOTES FROM THE CHIEF BLENDING OFFICER
Nose: Deep brown
Taste: Sweet and spicy, the outer palate is coated with sugary molasses and dark rum notes while the rear palate is inundated with mature oak and booze-soaked red grapes.
Finish: Medium-long, the rum and barrel tannins linger in a sweet yet oak-filled experience.
