Old Carter Whiskey Co. is the brainchild of Mark and Sherri Carter, the producers of fine Napa Valley wines under the name Carter Cellars. According to Mark and Sherri, “Old Carter Whiskey Co. is focused on creating totally unique, very small-batch, straight rye and bourbon whiskies. “We create our spirits from the heart, each one a single expression of what we love.” From selecting barrels, creating new blends, and handwriting each individual label by hand, the Carters do it all. Since the first releases in 2018, quite a few different batches of Old Carter have been released, ranging from less than 100 bottles per batch to over 2,000. This review is for the 2021 release of Old Carter Bourbon Batch 9, a high rye bourbon whiskey that was bottled at 116.3 and carries a retail price of $175 USD.

On the nose: rich oak with faint cherry, hints of vanilla, and sweet corn.

On the palate: rich and heavy mouthfeel with a rush of brown sugar and vanilla. Sweet corn and rye spice follow on the mid to back palate.

Finish: Spicy rye and corn on the finish with a low heat that settles in your chest. Rye tingles hit the tongue with aromas of dried fruit and vanilla coming back in between sips.
