“This is an Arizona-only release. Our Ten Year Anniversary offering boasts flavors from our Whiskey Del Bac Classic matured in new American Oak and finished in ex-Calvados barrels. On the nose, you might find pipe tobacco, crushed grape skin, and hints of green apple. Served neat you might taste leather up front, heading into a bright pear and finishing with citrus mid-palate. On the rocks, the sweeter notes of pear and citrus move forward, bolstered by notes of sweet grapes. The vanillas and light tannic bite subside, replaced by flashes of salted caramel. It is 100 proof and has an ABV of 50%.”

Bottles will be priced at $110 and sales will be limited to one each order.

Westbound — where the party is being held — is located at 267 S. Avenida Del Convento. For more information, visit whiskeydelbac.com
