Oregon-based Hood River Distillers recently unveiled “Trail’s End 10.” The drink is the newest addition to the maker’s Trail’s End Bourbon portfolio.
Made with 10-year Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey, this new addition to the Trail’s End family was finished in Oregon Garry oak casks. The Garry Oak casks are said to heighten the notes of vanilla and spice.
Trail’s End 10 is the second whiskey collaboration between Hood River Distillers, the oldest distillery in Oregon, and the expert team at Clear Creek Distillery, which is owned by Hood River.
On the nose, Trail’s End 10 offers aromas of vanilla, caramel and cherry with warm summer pine at the end. The palate features caramel, vanilla, cherry and roasted corn with a foundation of warm, earthy notes of summer pine and high desert moss. Bitter orange and delicate hints of lilac are hidden by the vanilla and oak.
This new expression is currently available in Oregon and Washington and will be introduced to additional states in the future with a suggested retail price of $59.95 at 52.5% ABV/105 proof.

Back in April, Hood River Distillers announced the launch of its newest brand, Timberline Vodka. Timberline reflects the spirit and love of the outdoors and those who thrive in it, says the brand. In March, the brand relaunched Big Gin. Handcrafted in Seattle, Washington, in the shipyards of Ballard, the gin comes in three expressions: London Dry, Bourbon Barreled, and Peat Barreled, as well as limited single barrel releases.
