Smoke Wagon Uncut Unfiltered is a cask strength Indiana bourbon coming from Nevada Distilling, based in Las Vegas, Nevada. This isn’t the first distillery to sell cask strength MGP bourbon, as Belle Meade, Backbone Bourbon, Traverse City, Old Carter, and others have also been doing it for years. Still, I’m sure each company does things differently with different profiles and approaches in mind, but that conversation is for another time.
Being a little too attentive to whiskey news, I know that there are stratospheric levels of hype around some Smoke Wagon bourbons and I have no good idea why, but here we are. Smoke Wagon Uncut Unfiltered bourbon, released in multiple batches per year at slightly different ABVs, is part of that aura. This one happens to be batch 14, bottled August 11, 2020. Let’s shine a light on this bourbon in this Smoke Wagon Uncut Unfiltered bourbon review.
