Overall: Long story short: Complex, delicious, sweet, warm and bold. Truly a remarkable "journey" across the palate from start to finish. The sweetness is enough to draw in the bourbon lover. The spice is plenty to appeal to the rye sipper. The single malt is soft enough but certainly noticeable in the form of floral and light fruits. But understand, these flavors and sensations don't follow each other from sip to sip...they dance around the palate and create a unique and delightful experience. This is something Blender, Ari Sussman knows quite well. An incredible addition to this release. Ari is the former head of Spirits Development at the Artisan Distilling Program at Michigan State University, and an award-winning whiskey maker.
The price point on this upcoming release fits the bill, in my opinion. Just let the components speak for themselves. Also, it just won Double Gold at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition...no small feat.
A little insight from the media sample insert:
Nashville, TN - May 2nd, 2023: Outsiders Spirits unveiled its premiere release today-a bold, new best-in-class spirit that friends and company co-founders Eric Church and entrepreneur Raj Alva have named Whiskey JYPSI - a contemporary interpretation of the "jYPSi Spirit" in all of us that seeks adventure and deeper meaning.
The first release, Whiskey JPSI's Legacy Batch 001, recently winning the Double Gold at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, is based on a traditional bourbon mash bill. However, instead of blending the grains before fermentation, or sourcing from the usual geographies, Whiskey JVPSI lived up to its name - sourcing individual aged whiskey components from various origins, then scientifically blending them to recreate the mash bill.
The Outsiders partners took a hands-on approach to every aspect of their new whiskey, creating and curating everything from inception to release - from taste, packaging and marketing to point of view.
With Whiskey JYPSI, the brand has set out to not only create the finest whiskey, but also to inspire.
"Whiskey JYPSI celebrates doing things the unconventional way. It's the commitment to the creative spirit, the process and the journey that excite me the most" says Church. "It's meant to inspire others to take chances like we have - follow a different path and enjoy and experience life at its fullest."
This release will be available in limited quantities on ReserveBar.com and in retail stores throughout Tennessee later this month. Be sure to stay connected and subscribe to whiskeyjypsi.com so you don't miss a beat!
A great big THANK YOU to the great folks at JYPSI for providing this media sample. It's the perfect fit in The Library.
