Oyo Bourbon¬†Whiskey Michelone Reserve
We are defined by the character our spirits exude.
It‚Äôs character that reflects the flavor Ohio‚Äôs soft red winter wheat gives our vodka. Our local fields are the key ingredient to our unique flavor profile, and we wouldn‚Äôt have it any other way.
It‚Äôs character that comes only from our intensive, small-batch process that centers on time-tested distilling traditions. It‚Äôs how we ensure we stay true to our ingredients and bring natural flavor to the forefront of our spirits.
It‚Äôs character that comes from two passionate owners, who hand-touch every part of the process. And it comes from the artisans we partner with, who are as passionate about their craft as we are about ours.
Four generations of distilling traditions and one particularly determined grandfather inspired Middle West Spirits‚Äô first Master‚Äôs Blend. This small-batch whiskey pairs the finest Kentucky straight bourbon with our award-winning OYO Whiskey to create a smooth, smoky, and softly sweet bourbon that proudly bears the name of the grandfather who inspired it all. The Michelone Reserve is a flavor-forward blend of sweet yellow corn, soft red winter wheat, dark pumpernickel rye, and two-row barley.
Tasting Notes: ‚ÄúDark amber color. Aromas of banana, coconut cream pies and toffeed nuts with a supple, fruity medium-to-full body and a sweet cream, dried fruit, honeyed whole nut, incense and baking spices driven finish. A flavorful and elegantly balanced bourbon.‚Äù ‚Äì International Review of Spirits, Beverage Testing Institute
Master‚Äôs Blend. All natural, pot-distilled bourbon whiskey. Kosher. 45% alcohol by volume (90 proof).
NOSE: Cedar, honey, corn banana
PALATE: Butterscotch, peach, corn, cedar, spearmint
FINISH: A very strong and long finish but not unpleasant. The initial flavor slips quickly over your tongue and then it is all about the burn. ¬†It drinks smooth and wheaty but the finish leaves you with the tingling on the tongue and a mild heat in the throat. But oddly enough it is almost a cool burn.¬†There is bitterness to the final taste
