St. Louis, MO – Yellowstone Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey Finished in Toasted Staves, part of the Yellowstone Special Finishes Collection, will be available for purchase in October. Aged for four years and bottled at 100 proof (50% ABV), it will have a suggested retail price of $49.99 for a 750-ml bottle.
Yellowstone Toasted is based on the brand’s traditional bourbon mash bill, with an additional stave finishing process. Distiller Stephen Beam selected a blend of five different staves – high toast, American oak double-toast, vanilla, rick house, and spice rack – to achieve the desired flavor profile.
The resulting bourbon offers aromas of toasted caramel and vanilla, with hints of fall spices and cinnamon. It has a medium body with flavors of walnut, toffee, black tea, and white pepper, concluding with notes of cocoa, tobacco, and oak.
The release is part of the Yellowstone Special Finishes Collection, an effort to celebrate the brand’s bourbon heritage while introducing new variations. Distiller Stephen Beam, a seventh-generation master distiller, utilized his experience with toasted barrels in crafting this release. The packaging maintains the brand’s iconic bottle design and artwork, with a more prominent Yellowstone brand name and a Special Finishes Collection label. A brown top-wrap distinguishes Yellowstone Toasted Bourbon from other Yellowstone variants.
This addition to the Yellowstone Bourbon family provides consumers with another option to enjoy the brand’s bourbon legacy.
