Sunshine Reserve has been specifically crafted to be a hybrid between a Bourbon and a Single Pot Still Irish Whisky in terms of flavor. As a result, it has the dominant caramel and vanilla flavors of a Bourbon, but instead of having Bourbon's heavier oak and smoke flavor, it has the soft smoothness and light fruit notes of an Irish Whisky.
- Aged primarily with toasted oak instead of the more traditional charred oak. This gives it lighter, brighter vanilla flavors like marzipan or creme-brule and reduces the heavy oak and smoke flavors typical of Bourbons.
- Aged at a lower proof than almost any other American Whiskey on the market (around 110 proof), which gives it a softer, sweeter flavor that has less spice and dark wood to it than other Whiskeys that are aged at a higher proof.
- Hand crafted in upstate New York using grains sourced through partnerships with small local farms.
- Unique, four grain recipe is primarily based on Oats, which give the Whiskey its signature floral softness. The remaining 3 grains, Rye, Spelt, and Malted Barley, provide the Whiskey with mild cinnamon spice and maltiness that balance the Oats perfectly and create its wonderful complexity.
