"Copper Fox Whisky
A copper Pot Still coaxes the spirit from ripe grain in 3-barrel batches. But before the waltz of whisky and wood in charred oak, Copper Fox does a little tango with hand-toasted apple wood chips from the seasoned hearts of fulley matured trees. This gives Copper Fox a smooth richness that is like no other whisky in the world!"
I have not tried it unfortunately.
Happy reading, a Merry Christmas and aHappy New Year.
Took the plunge and ordered 2 bottles via the internet. And yes, it is not a rye but a whisky and toasted apple bark is part of the formula..........should be interesting!
PS...Mark Twain said it right!..."There ain't no such thing as too much good whiskey!" Words to live by!

No, it's NOT bourbon. By federal law (1964), nothing can be added to bourbon but water to bring it to barrel (up to 125 at entry) or bottle (usually 80-101, but as high as 2003 Stagg's 142.7) proof. And the only wood it can contact past the still is oak (barrels).
The only mention of bourbon on the website states that Coper Fox whisky is aged in used bourbon barrels (bourbon must be aged in new barrels).
Here are the specs for American whiskeys (see 'Class 2'):
Golly, I am not a real sharp guy with the correct verbage that others on this forum have. I rate whiskys/bourbons under two catagories...........bite & burn.
I tried it 3 ways..........straight..........1 to 1 with water (2oz each) and my usual of 2ozs to 8ozs of water.
Straight...........very nice..very little "bite & burn" with a noticable flavor.........might drink this whisky straight most of the time.
1 to 1........really nice to the palate..........not much flavor loss.
2oz to 8oz.........really lost the flavor.......almost like drinking water.
Sorry I couldn't be more descriptive .... best I could do.
I order it from InternetWines.com 12 at a time. With shipping that comes to $20.33 a bottle. Not bad when compared to the regular price of $17.99 per bottle in the Virginia ABC stores. Y'all have got to try it!!!!!!!!!!!!
