LAS VEGAS (May 2022) – SAHARA Las Vegas announces the second bottle of its exclusive whiskey label partnership series with Rare Character Whiskey Co. The extremely rare KRY-542 barrel—never released before and never to be released again—is a five-year and 10-month-aged, straight rye, 95/5 mash bill whiskey, distilled and bottled in Bardstown, Kentucky. Distilled by Bourbon Hall of Fame distiller Steve Nally, this bottle offers a particularly special corn unique to Kentucky made bourbon.
Created by restaurateur and whiskey aficionado Pablo Moix, Rare Character Whiskey Co. was created out of Moix’s love for collecting and producing rare and distinctive whiskies. The limited-edition SAHARA Las Vegas high-rye bourbon barrel is available at Chickie’s & Pete’s Crabhouse and Sports Bar, CASBAR Lounge and The Tangier while supplies last.
“Distilled and aged in Bardstown, Kentucky, the Bourbon capital of the world, this is a rye whiskey at 82 proof aged for 5 years and 10 months,” said Nate Hedlund, director of beverage, SAHARA Las Vegas. “You get the typical spicy notes from the rye, complimented with bright orange zest and floral flavors of coriander and jasmine.”
Whiskey enthusiasts can expect SAHARA Las Vegas’ third barrel release of Rare Character Whiskey Co.’s straight Kentucky rye whiskey in the coming months.
