This isn?t your ordinary American bourbon style whiskey its Tim Smith?s century-old moonshine recipe aged and filtered with toasted oak and maple wood imparting color and revolutionary flavors. Premium southern Appalachian Oak-in tank inserts are made of white oak staves. Hand selected to be without defect from millions of board feet of wood. Each white oak stave is carefully cured to within +/- 0.5% moisture content before undergoing our unique small batch open flame wood toasting and aging process throughout the entire thickness of the whole stave and is allowing for 100% of the oak to work on the maturation process. The final process allows the whiskey to cool in Oak containers and the result is Tim Smith?s revolutionary Climax Whiskey - Made to be in a Class of its Own.
