Conecuh Ridge Distillers, has announced the launch of a new 9 Year Old, cask strength expression, from its Clyde May's whiskey brand.

Clyde May's 9 Year Old Cask Strength Whiskey (58.5% ABV) has been aged for at least 9 years, in charred American oak barrels.

This latest release from the Alabama based whiskey brand, follows on from last year’s Clyde May's 8 Year Old Cask Strength Whiskey release, which sold out within a couple of months and earned a Gold Medal at the 2016 New York World Wine and Spirits competition.

Commenting on the launch, Ron Call, Whiskey Master at Clyde May's, said: "Our 9-year Cask Strength is complex and uncommonly smooth at 117 proof. Finishing it in the Alabama style rounds out and even softens the bold flavours into a surprisingly smooth finish. Our first Cask Strength, an 8-year, was very well received, and we believe an extra year of aging reveals more complex flavours than last year's release."

Clyde May's Whiskey, is produced by Conecuh Ridge distillers, which was founded by Clyde May, an Alabama farmer and war hero, in the late 1940s. Clyde lived in Alabama's Conecuh Ridge and was a moonshiner by trade but a craftsman by heart. Using copper stills, fresh Alabama spring water and the finest local grains, he vowed to make the best whiskey Alabama had ever tasted.

Clyde May's 9 Year Old Cask Strength Whiskey, will be available later this month from selected specialist retailers in the US, for a RRP of $99.99.
