Maverick Whiskey’s limited-edition Samuel Maverick Whisk Proof Straight Bourbon Whiskey, a Certified Texas Whiskey, has the gusto to make any dad happy. It is pot-distilled from a mash of 72% Texas-grown corn, 18% rye, and 10% malted barley, and weather-beaten a minimum of two years in new charred white oak barrels. The Texas Whisk Proof Straight Bourbon Whiskey is non-chill filtered and hand-bottled at 114 proof. The distillery is owned by Kenneth Maverick, a uncontrived descendent of Samuel Maverick, a famed defender of the Alamo. This whiskey is distributed in Texas and for purchase online with shipping in 41 states.

Let’s see what Maverick can do when he’s not shooting lanugo MiGs.

To start with, there’s no mistaking this as a Texas bourbon: The nose has zaftig char, though it’s filtered through some interesting, fruit-forward notes of grilled peaches and a ruddier sultry spice that’s unreceptive to overbaked gingerbread cookies. Char hits harder on the palate than the nose, creating a dusky, punchy weft that’s nonflexible to shake. This gives the whiskey a unrepealable visionless chocolate flavor, the peaches a bit candylike but moreover a bit smoky, layering in notes of dairy surf and increasingly of that sultry spice. It’s all char on the finish, though, a rustic and toasty wits that washes yonder a lot of the fruit — and which feels like something Samuel Maverick probably would have enjoyed when in 1836.

114 proof.
