Whiskey R5 (Lot No. 4)
Now in its fourth release, Charbay's R5 Lot No. 4 is double-distilled from Bear Republic Brewery's award-winning Racer 5 IPA® beer (7% abv)
Marko chose this IPA for its upfront aromatic hops, great dose of bittering hops, high quality two-row barley, balanced and a smooth, clean finish… See if you can taste how each of these is revealed in the whiskey.

"...an amazingly flavorful whiskey...rich in flavor and a must-try for the whisky enthusiast." - Oliver's Markets (Sonoma County, CA)
Some enjoy it neat. Some add a large cube of ice. Some add a splash of water... or two - it releases the flavor molecules and allows you to taste even more layers of flavors.
