About This Whiskey
The Ghost Barrel on fruity steroids - a bright, punchy opening that evaporates into a sweet, rich mid-palate of butterscotch candies, kettle corn, & spicy rye kicks. Ridiculously loooooong, dusty oak finish. 
Hand-Selected by Two Souls Spirits for its incredibly unique combination of aroma's & flavors. This is a "Boss Level" bourbon - novices may want to reconsider their life decisions. 
Distilled from a mash bill of local grains (corn, rye, malted barley) with loads of old-school pot still influence

Sometimes you find a great whiskey, sometimes a great whiskey finds you. This bourbon from Rush Creek Distilling (Harvard, IL) found us in December 2023 and we loved it so much we put it straight into this bottle for you to enjoy. Born from Rush Creek’s passion for community, craftsmanship, and innovation, this straight bourbon whiskey is everything we love about craft spirits. This is our only barrel from Rush Creek, so enjoy this collaboration while you can! Cheers! 

Tasting Notes: Sweet and bright with a big proof punch - dusty kettle corn, apricot, brown sugar, butterscotch, warm baking spices, dry oak finish.
