To mark the fall season, Sagamore Spirit today announced that it is launching two limited time offer whiskey selections under its Sagamore Reserve label: Double Oak and Moscatel Barrel Finish. The releases will be available next week in stores where Sagamore Spirit products are currently sold.
“We are excited to continue to spread the word about Sagamore Spirit,” said Brian Treacy, President of Sagamore Spirit. “We are very proud of the addition of the two, new limited time offer whiskies, and we are certain they will provide new and exciting drinking experiences for our fans throughout the country.”
Double Oak is Sagamore Spirit’s Straight Rye Whiskey (a four year old) placed into wave stave barrels and aged for an additional four months. Wave stave technology is a new process consisting of using barrels with specialized grooves that age the whiskey quicker. The barrels are toasted, never hit with a direct flame, resulting in a high concentration of caramelized sugars. The bottle boasts a rich navy label, highlighting the 96.6 proof whiskey’s radiating amber and warm chestnut color. Sagamore Reserve Double Oak Straight Rye Whiskey will have a suggested retail price of $59.99 per 750 ml bottle.
The bolder of the two, Moscatel Barrel Finished Rye Whiskey, is Sagamore Spirit’s award winning Straight Rye Whiskey aged for 107 – 110 days in Moscatel fortified wine barrels, sourced from the south of Spain. The Sagamore Spirit distilling team acquired just 20 barrels for this aging process, making this a very exclusive and limited batch. At 101.2 proof, this full-bodied whiskey is perfect for sipping on cold winter nights. Sagamore Reserve Moscatel Barrel Finished Rye Whiskey will have a suggested retail price of $79.99 per 750 ml bottle.
