Vegas Whiskeys // The Younger + Uncut // Set of 2 // 750 ml Each
Located in the heart of Downtown Las Vegas, Smoke Wagon takes its name from old west slang for the 1873 Colt single action army revolver or "the gun that won the west." The logo stamped in wax consists of two crossed Smoke Wagons over the state of Nevada. Below it is their motto and a quote from Seneca, "bibamus moriendum est." The literal translation is "drink, for we must die" but the meaning is more along the lines of, 'drink and enjoy today because we won't be around forever'.
Smoke Wagon's Uncut Unfiltered is a high proof bourbon that tasted its best neat. There's no water added because none is needed. Blending vintages of the high rye mash bill to achieve this flavor profile at 115-116+ proof was a very rewarding challenge. There is a delicate balance between creamy mouthfeel, tannins, and sugars that comes into play that makes the end result magical. Older vintages have more evaporation which means a higher concentration of fats and sugars per ounce which gives them a nice creamy mouthfeel as well as caramel and honey goodness. They also have more tannins because alcohol has been in contact with the wood for longer. A lot of what some perceive as alcohol burn is actually a harshness due to tannins. This can counterbalance the benefit gained by the high concentration of lipid esters insulating your pallet from alcohol heat. There needs to be enough of the older bourbon for the oak flavors and mouthfeel, but also some younger ones to cut back on the tannins and bring in some delicate fruit and caramel flavors.

Smoke Wagon Uncut The Younger is an expertly crafted, full bodied, young-aged bourbon aged in new white oak barrels that were charred to specifications, and lit on fire. This bourbon is fruit forward with tons of delicate candy flavors and big cinnamon spice on the finish. The mash bill is comprised of 36% rye and an undisclosed amount of other grains, which can be estimated to be 60% corn, 36% rye and 4% malted barley mash bill, but, it could be different.
