Milam & Greene Whiskey is releasing its limited-edition HOME Single Barrel Bourbon Whiskey at a special event at the distillery. A special cask was selected and bottled to raise funds for HOME, Housing Opportunities for Musicians and Entertainers, a non-profit group made up of musicians and music business professionals dedicated to helping aging musicians in the Austin area pay their housing expenses.
The single cask of bourbon was selected by HOME board member, Marsha Milam, founder of Milam & Greene Whisky, and HOME vice president and founding board member, Marcia Ball, Austin’s own multi-Grammy-winning singer and pianist who performs a blend of New Orleans piano, Louisiana swamp rock, and smoldering Texas Blues.
The whiskey selected came from Cask # 21-0489, which was filled March 7, 2016, aged for five years, four months, and 13 days in a 53-gallon new American white oak barrel, and bottled on June 22, 2021 at barrel proof, 125 proof or 62.5% ABV. It has delectable aromas of maple, butterscotch, toffee, and dark chocolate, and bold flavors of cinnamon, pepper, and spice wrapped up in a warm finish.
