Clyde May's unveils nine-year Cask Strength Whiskey

Clyde May's Whiskey has unveiled its new nine-year Cask Strength Whiskey in the US for a limited time.

This is the second limited-edition Cask Strength Whiskey from Clyde May's. Master brewer Ron Call said: “Our nine-year Cask Strength is complex and uncommonly smooth at 117 proof. Finishing it in the Alabama style rounds out and even softens the bold flavors into a surprisingly smooth finish.

"Our first Cask Strength, an eight-year, was very well received and we believe an extra year of ageing reveals more complex flavours than last year's release." 

The company is planning to release its 117 proof whiskey product at select stores across the country on Father's Day in the US.

"Our nine-year Cask Strength is complex and uncommonly smooth at 117 proof."

The new nine-year Cask Strength Whiskey product will be available across the US for a suggested price of $99.99.

Clyde May's Whiskey, produced by Conecuh Ridge distillers, was created by Alabama farmer Clyde May in the late 1940s. May used copper stills, fresh Alabama spring water, and the finest local grains in the drink, which was then aged  in charred oak barrels. He added oven-dried apples to his barrels and the resulting hint of apple made the whiskey particularly smooth.

Clyde May's Whiskey is claimed to be the official state spirit of Alabama.
