For this limited release, we took an exceptional 15-year-old Kentucky Straight Bourbon and finished it for one year in new French Oak barrels sculpted by the virtuoso artisans of Tonnellerie Leroi, one of France’s most renown cooperages. The exquisite bourbon that has emerged from these barrels is as luxurious in taste as it is in appearance.

Nevallier began with a selection of ten, rare Kentucky Straight high rye bourbon whiskeys chosen by Kaveh from the private collection he began curating before he founded Rabbit Hole. Kaveh cloistered the charred American oak barrels for 15 years of vibrant seasonality in Kentucky, where the bourbon derived a distinctive flavor from the particular barrel in which it was aged. When blended, the whiskeys came to a stunning conclusion, with elevated layers of aroma, nuance and complexity.
Per the brand, forest of origin played a pivotal role in the choice of oak that Kaveh selected for the barrels to be used in finishing. Given that the terroir and climate of a region affect the density of the wood’s grain and the manner in which the wood imparts its oak flavors, he ultimately selected oak from the Nevers and Allier forests of central France. There, the woods are of medium-to-tight grain and release the region’s characteristic oak flavors slowly, while imparting the soft tannic structure that discerning winemakers have long favored.
