Proof66 Notes

Filibuster is a label of whiskey owned and managed by Washington DC retailer Modern Liquors (purchased by Mukesh Dilawri in 2010 according to the write-up at TBD). The whiskey itself is bottled at Strong Spirits of Kentucky. The name is an homage to the fine tradition of American politics where, in the words of the website, "talk and talk, without saying anything." Which is, of course, the point. 

Filibuster bourbon is called "dual cask" because it undergoes an additional finishing of a few months in 225 liter (~60 gallon) French oak barrels following the customary aging required of all bourbon in toasted American White Oak. To our mind, the larger barrels give a slower, more gentle aging than the increasingly common process of staves, small barrels, or other accelerants. The French oak previously held wine and some of these flavors are said to infuse the whiskey (indeed, the federal Tax and Trade Bureau classifies this as a whiskey specialty rather than a regular bourbon). They believe this gives their whiskey a "bipartisan blend" of "spicy edginess" and "mellow smoothness."
