Hole 31 – The Lost 9

By March 21, 2024No Comments

Perfect for whiskey connoisseurs, golfers and dinosaur lovers alike, our newest, breathtakingly detailed polo release, The Lost Nine, is quite the vibrant design! Its distinctly prehistoric motif features six different prehistoric creatures, the almighty T-Rex, Stegosaurus, Triceratops, Velociraptor and a Parasaurolophus. Combine these with colorful golf accents on a jet black background and you’ve got a truly unique color scheme that pops! 

The Lost Nine – The Whiskey

The inspiration for this release came when ParHopper & The Local Drive had the opportunity to select our own single barrel of whiskey from our friends at Old Elk Distillery. We got to tour the distillery and then sample whiskey straight from the barrels. After much deliberation and smacking, we had our unanimous pick!  It’s a rich and refined tasting 9 year straight barrel proof bourbon from deep in their archive, the very first 9 year old private barrel pick ever released by Old Elk! 

The Private Barrel Pick

Accordingly, it will be called The Lost 9 as well. It’s a time capsule if you will, from almost another decade, something majestic and almost prehistoric. At a nice 108 proof, this barrel pick is spectacular! We get aromas of caramel, honey, and vanilla with hints of oaky banana on the nose, with sweet honey and vanilla with a touch of cinnamon and oakiness on the palate. The finish is smooth and gentle with lingering flavors of banana and a nice hug! This is one release you definitely don’t want to miss, so stay tuned for the announcement of the official release of the bottle. As for the polo, it just dropped so go grab one NOW while supplies last.
