Clyde May's Cask Strength 8 Year Old Alabama Style Whiskey
Always distilling whiskey outside the law, May was arrested in 1973 and served an 18-month sentence at the Maxwell Air Force Base. "He sure had a reputation for making fine whiskey," said Thomas Allison, a former officer with the United States Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. Upon his release, May gave up his cell to the man who convicted him Attorney General John Mitchell, who was convicted in 1974 on charges relating to the Watergate scandal.
After May's death in 1990, his son, Kenny, took up the family business and began working with Kentucky Bourbon Distillers to produce a whiskey in honor of his father. Using his father's recipe and water imported from Conecuh Ridge, May produced the first legal batch of Clyde May's in 2001.
Today, Clyde May's Whiskey continues to be made from the same recipe that Kenneth's father perfected nearly 50 years ago — a mash of corn, rye and malted barley. Once the grains are distilled, they are aged in charred American Oak barrels for eight years.
This new cask strength release from Clyde May's Whiskey at 117 proof is older and bolder than prior releases — a full-proof version of the classic! On the nose, red apple skins and flesh mix with pepper and vanilla, continuing to a fruity palate followed by a long lasting finish of apple, spice, toffee, and vanilla.
