Denis Lynch - Ted Huber has been distilling a long time. While many of today's craft distillers were running around in diapers, Ted was running spirit through the imported German still at his family's farm in Boden, southern Indiana. The Huber family have been farming this land since 1843, when Simon Huber emigrated from Baden-Baden in Germany, bringing with him his extensive knowledge of farming and winemaking. Ted Huber cut his teeth in fruit production and winemaking, and later decided that he should begin distilling the fruits of his labor into brandies, carrying on the practice as his ancestors did in Germany. It was 2001 when Ted fired up his still for the first time, and since then his brandies have won critical acclaim. Producing a world-class spirit on a small scale takes a lot of skill and perseverance, but it's the attention to detail that Ted, Jason Heiligenberg (Master Distiller at Huber) and his closely knit team have put into their work that really shines through.

It's for this reason that Vine & Table's crack tasting team headed south in April of this year to visit with Ted and Jason and check out some of the projects that they are working on. And one of those happens to be bourbon. While we are big fans of Huber's original release 'Carl T.

And then something happened...

The second barrel that we tasted was so profoundly good that we asked if we could purchase it then and there. The expression on Ted's face was priceless, simply because he had prepared about a dozen barrels for us to taste. But we wanted this one; there was no need to go any further because we had tasted bourbon nirvana!

The nose has inviting notes of black tea, light wispy toffee, freshly buttered toast and oak spice that sits evenly in check with all of the other aromas. At 108 proof, there is not the faintest hint of alcohol, which is one of the key features of this barrel and a testament to Ted and his team. On the palate, warming honey comes in waves along with light liquid toffee and flecks of vanilla. The richness of the spirit is what drew us to to Barrel 1401 and that richness continues into a pretty long finish. A drop of water or an ice cube accentuates the richness and really brings the sweetness of the whisky to th
