One Eight is a distillery located in Washington DC that offers a range of spirits including homemade and sourced whiskeys. Their best-known line of whiskeys has to be the Untitled series: sourced whiskeys finished in a range of interesting things such as wine, brandy, and even coffee. If you ever get a chance, I recommend visiting the distillery for a tour and for a 3-pour flight so you can get familiar with some of what they offer. It’s a great time and a worthwhile experience.
The topic of this review is One Eight’s Untitled No. 13, a 10 year old bourbon (source unknown) finished Cognac, Spanish brandy, Amontillado, Oloroso and Pedro Ximenez sherry barrels. That’s 5 different finishes! Fun fact – while Cognac is French, the rest of the finishing components are Spanish. I’m a big fan of sherry and still drink them on occasion, so that is something also worth investigating if you want to try something new and expand your whiskey knowledge. It’s interesting that they chose to use so many finishes because it’s likely that some notes will get lost in the huge mix, but we’ll find out what happens in this One Eight Untitled No. 13 bourbon review.
