The Redwood Empire Whiskey brand now has three bottlings, all of which are select blends of aged whiskeys between 4-12 years that feature new labels inspired by California’s most iconic conservationist, John Muir. They are as follows:
- “Lost Monarch” Blend of Straight Whiskeys (this is likely the one we previously reviewed): Named for the tallest tree in the Redwood Empire’s Grove of Titans, this blend of rye and bourbon is crafted from three to five year-old rye, and four to twelve year-old bourbon.
- “Pipe Dream” Bourbon: Standing at 367 feet, “Pipe Dream” is the fourteenth tallest tree on earth. Blended from barrels that have been aging anywhere between four and twelve years, this bourbon is a deep golden color with rich, complex flavors of vanilla, roasted pecans and a slight woody char.
- “Emerald Giant” Rye: This expression’s namesake is the tallest tree in the Emerald Grove. It is blended from rye barrels aged three to five years and brings an amalgamation of spice, orange peel, a hint of honey and peppery cinnamon finish.
