The Whiskey Lover's Collection

The Whiskey Lover's Collection features four of Pop's favorite barrel picks, which he's helped pick out over the past ten years. This collection includes three bourbons and one genuinely unforgettable rye whiskey.

Traverse City Whiskey Co. Barrel Proof Rye Whiskey

  • 95% Rye MGP Mash Bill
  • 8 years
  • 116.6 Proof (64% ABV)
  • Pops' Note: When visiting Traverse City Whiskey Co., we sampled nine barrels. This barrel stood out above all others and required no deliberation. It is my favorite MGP rye whiskey of all time.

Green River Full Proof Single Barrel Bourbon

  • High-rye Bourbon Mash Bill
  • 6 years and 8 months
  • 119 Proof (59.5% ABV)
  • Pops' Note: I've been a fan of Green River since it was first released, and I was honored to be one of the earliest groups to select our single barrel. This barrel pick will be one I drink slowly for years to come.

KO Distilling Bare Knuckle High Rye Single Barrel Bourbon

  • Mash bill: 75% Corn, 21% Rye, 4% Malted Barley (MGP distilled)
  • Cooperage: Kelvin Cooperage Barrels
  • 7 years and 2 months
  • 134.6 Proof (67.3% ABV)
  • Pops' Note: This is unlike any MPG-sourced barrel pick we've done before. There was magic lurking in those Kelvin Cooperage Barrels that transformed this bourbon into a truly unique barrel pick.

Maker’s Mark Private Selection – “Loretto Modjeska”

  • Stave Profile: 4 Seared French Cuvee, 1 Maker's Mark 46, 4 Roasted French Mendiant, 1 Toasted French Spice
  • 10 years and 4 months
  • 109.3 Proof (54.65% ABV)
  • Pops' Note: This bottle's stave profile was inspired by the Modjeskas crafted by our friends at Art Eatables in Louisville. This pick was blended to pair perfectly with their Modjeskas which feature creamy vanilla marshmallow, layered between salted caramel, enrobed in semi-sweet dark chocolate and sprinkled with Shell-bee's™ Bourbon Smoked sea salt. We highly recommend you order a few bags if you're the lucky winner.
