Log Still Distillery recently announced the second release in their limited Fifth District Series, an expression that pays tribute to the historic distilleries of the fifth tax district in Kentucky.
A statement from Log Still notes that Fifth District Series II particularly honors the legacy of F.M. Head Distillery, which operated on Log Still’s current grounds, and a distillery that’s included in the DSP-KY-47 lineage.
That lineage is where Log Still’s DSP number, 47, comes from.
The distiller noted that this new release is an 8-year-old high rye bourbon finished in toasted barrels. It clocks in at 50% ABV, 100 proof.
Lynne Dant, distiller and chief operating officer at Log Still, said that with the Fifth District Series, their line of Monk’s Road Bourbon steps back into time, acknowledging the history of their distillery grounds.
“Fifth District Series II has been nurtured for eight years as a high rye bourbon, and finished with a secondary barreling in toasted barrels, infusing it with a distinctive smoky character,” he added. “This smokiness is beautifully counterbalanced by flavors of cherry and spice, creating a layered spirit of remarkable depth and complexity with a very smooth finish.”
The new Fifth District Series II will be in retail locations starting in August, in Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio, Tennessee, Mississippi, Georgia, and South Carolina. It has a suggested retail price of $99.99.
