Shenks Homestead Sour Mash Whiskey 2021 Review

Shenk’s Homestead Sour Mash Whiskey

Shenk’s Homestead honors John Shenk, who founded a distillery in 1783 that would later become Michter’s. It’s a limited-production release shrouded by a little mystery. This is a “high rye” whiskey that doesn’t make its mash bill public. The 2021 release’s aging process uses barrels made from Chinquapin Oak trees. Some use the oak as proof that Shenk’s can’t possibly be bourbon. It could be that the mash bill has less than 51% corn, which would knock it out of the bourbon sphere.

Bombergers Declaration Review 2021

Bomberger’s Declaration Review

We hope you enjoy our Bomberger’s Declaration Review! So, I am assuming that everyone knows that Bomberger’s Declaration is made by Michter’s? Shenk’s, too? But, do you know the history of the names? They both refer to the distillery that would eventually become the original Michter’s distillery. That’s the Michter’s Distillery which was in Pennsylvania, not the current Kentucky one, which is of fairly recent construction.
