Release: October 2016
Price: $90
Proof: 117
Availability: 3,000 bottles
Style: Bourbon

Need to know: This is the first limited-edition Clyde May’s and joins the 5-year and two existing Clyde May’s — 85-proof Whiskey and 110-proof Special Reserve, introduced in 2015 .

Whisky Advocate says: According to their website, Clyde May’s hallmark is the addition of oven-dried apples to the barrels, a technique they refer to as Alabama Style and claim provides a special smoothness to the whiskeys. This bottling is finished with natural apple essence in the Clyde May’s style, while the 92 proof Straight Bourbon (above) stands alone, unadultered by chill-filtering or apple influence.
