    • The Nevada H&C Distilling Co., home of Smoke Wagon Bourbon, is one of the early wave craft distillers who nabbed a good contract from the excellent distillery in Lawrenceberg Indiana. 12 years later, these guys are sitting on some really top notch Straight Bourbon, but no one seems to know anything about them. The distillery is in the heart of down town Las Vegas. They've released a range of excellent bourbons in various price points, but we're only now getting access to the very best juice.

      Uncut Unfiltered is a blend of high rye bourbons rumored to be between 4 and 10 years old, bottled at barrel strength without chill filtration in individually numbered batches.  The nose is initially punchy with big barrel notes that alternate between matchsticks and dark chocolate with the occasional, fleeting bit of dark cherry and flamed orange peel. As it opens, the oak softens considerably, allowing more toasted sugar and praline notes to emerge. The palate is oily with a generous, even heat. There’s a nice depth of flavor, with silky brown sugar and toffee notes that turn leathery and spice-filled into the mid-palate before giving way to brighter orange rock candy and clove.
