The Doc Swinson’s Collection began with an extremely small cache of Bourbon Barrels that were just too good to pass up. It has since grown into a unique and on occasion extremely rare, collection of American whiskies.
The proof is in the palate. Each whiskey brought in is personally tasted by the four of us at Doc Swinson’s.
Whatever whiskey comes through these doors, our small group of tastemakers at Doc’s work hard to create flavor profiles that hold our expectations of great whiskey to a higher standard; and that starts by always letting the whiskey shine. No need to take our word for it, give ‘em a try!

We borrowed and twisted many of these techniques to produce Doc’s Alter Ego Bourbon. Our goal was to take good whiskies, blend them together and see how we could enhance these blends as well as maintain the flavor of the whiskey itself. After years of finishing whiskies in a variety of casks, we believe we have struck success using Olorosso Sherry, Pedro Ximenez Sherry, and Cognac casks from a number of curated producers.
This higher proof takes our Triple Cask finishing process to the next level. Experience the boldness.
A Summer 2022 limited release
Tasting Notes: Marzipan, dark cherries, whipped cream, allspice, caramel, rich oak tannins
A rich pairing, this 5-year bourbon is finished in a selection of Pedro Ximenez Sherry Butts, delivering depth, thickness, and body. Doc’s Blender hand-selected the whiskeys from each sherry butt and skillfully blended them for this limited release and aptly named it El Cuerpo, Spanish for “the body.” EL CUERPO is one of three limited bourbons that complete the Mind, Body, and Spirit line, named for their contributions to the Doc Swinson’s Alter Ego Triple Cask Bourbon.
This limited single finish expression allows you the chance to experience one of the individual pieces of the whole, all outstanding on their own at cask strength.

After numerous releases of our Triple Cask Alter Ego Bourbon,
Jesse Parker, Doc's blender, started to notice a late-night trend
as we sampled the base bourbon. After witnessing copious
nights in the warehouse with glasses that refused to be set
down, it became apparent that the Blenders Cut needs to be
shared! We oer this to you at a whopping 115 proof, from the
cask. Enjoy straight from the bottle or add a little water to bring
out some more flavors.

Rye whiskey and rum are a natural complement, and Doc

methods fround in the Spanish sherry bodegas and blending
techniques of South and Central America to create this nuanced
and award winning whiskey.
Nose: Slight smoke, caramel apples, poached spiced pears
Palate: Peach pit, cherry blossom, molasses, anise, velvet tides of fig, vanilla frosting, Caribbean spice cake
