America’s Hamburger Expert, George Motz, hand picked Barrel No. 476, a four-and-half year old rye whiskey from New York Distilling Company, for its specific attributes to pair with a great smoked or grilled burger. At 100 Proof there is an immediate rush of tropical flavor - banana flambé, butter caramel and a hint of honey. The complexity that follows - a variety of white pepper and meditative smoke - and the slow, deep, and rewarding burn that lingers, makes for an incredibly long finish. Each bottle is numbered and signed by George.
