This whiskey, launched in May 2023, comes to us from Outsiders Spirits, a new company co-founded by country music artist Eric Church. Whiskey JYPSI Legacy Batch 001 is a blended whiskey composed of 70% 7- and 8-year-old Indiana bourbon, 21% 20-year-old Canadian rye whisky and 9% 4-year-old Indiana single malt whiskey. Bottled at 115 proof and priced at $199.99, this looks to be a promising, intriguing blend. Let's dive in!
Sweet butter and honey, surprisingly light but full of caramel, honey, sweet cream and rising bread with a salted caramel undertone.
Rich on the palate with an impressive blend of woodiness and tannin with salted caramel, red fruits like cherry and raspberry, pleasant tobacco and a nice balance of ethanol to flavor. Wow, this is complex. Impressive stuff!
The finish is perhaps the best part of this whiskey. This really brings it all together with sweet, roasty malt tones, plenty of pleasant oak, toffee, crème brûlée and a touch of cocoa and vanilla bean.
I love that on the surface, you have no idea this is a celeb whiskey. In the glass... you'd never know it, either. Full of complexity and flavor, it's well blended and easy to drink and savor. It's a wild blend, but it works and it works well.
