Today we’re taking a closer look at StilL 630’s Experimental Collection Release #11. The X-11 is a high rye bourbon mash bill with a twist. Instead of using only one type of malted barley, it contains four different varieties – three of which are smoked. Here’s the full mash bill for reference:
- 60% Corn
- 20% Rye
- 5% Applewood Smoked Malted Barley
- 5% Cherrywood Smoked Malted Barley
- 5% Mesquite Smoked Malted Barley
- 5% Malted Barley
Aged in a 15-gallon #3 char barrel for 15.5 months, the X-11 is a unique blend of rye spice and smoke. What our video review for our full review and tasting notes.
