"I'm an avid whiskey lover," says Darek Bell, master distiller at Corsair Artisan Distillery in Kentucky, "but I do think whiskey could be better. Different. More interesting. More imaginative." Bell, a graduate of the Bruichladdich Distilling Academy in Islay, Scotland, is a mad-scientist and a notoriously experimental distiller. Since opening its doors in 2009, Corsair Artisan Distillery has received numerous accolades and awards, including being named the 2013 Craft Distillery of the Year and 2013 Innovator of the Year by Whisky Magazine.

Corsair Rasputin Hopped Whisky is crafted by first brewing a traditional Russian Imperial stout. Stouts are a type of dark beer made from roasted barley and hops, and typically have a bold, intense flavor profile characterized by bitter chocolate and coffee. Once the beer has been brewed, Bell distills it through his 240-gallon copper-pot still. During distillation, Bell adds additional hops to the still's carter head in order to infuse the whiskey with a stronger, bolder flavor profile. Following distillation, the whisky is matured in charred American oak casks, which contribute notes of vanilla and caramel.

As a result of its unique mashbill and distillation process, Corsair Rasputin Hopped Whisky has a malty aroma, with hints of pale ale, honey and mint. The aroma gives way to notes of caramel, oak, whipped cream and smoke, which are balanced by a subtle, warming undertone. The finish is rich and complex, with touches of hops and roasted malt.
