Hooten Young, a veteran-founded American Whiskey and cigar brand, launched its newest limited-edition product, Hooten Young & Jack Carr Warrior Proof American Whiskey. The 16-year reserve is a collaboration with former Navy SEAL and New York Times Best Selling Author of The Terminal List.

After being featured on episode 1 of The Terminal List’s book-turned-series Amazon Prime debut, Hooten Young knew this was the start of a brilliant partnership. And so, with the right-hand support of Jack Carr and MGP Distillery, we’ve co-created a whiskey bottled straight from the barrel.

At 125 proof, this is a whiskey fine for drinking neat or with a few drops of distilled water. It stays true to the brand’s master mash bill, 99% corn and 1% barley. With its high corn percentage, the 125-proof is made smoother and sweeter, rounded out by notes of clove and baked apple.

Starting this spring, the new whiskey will be available in limited quantities at shop.hootenyoung.com, and select Texas, California, and Florida liquor stores. Online presale began May 16, 2023. It will be packaged in a keepsake bottle that features the distinctive branding of Hooten Young and Jack Carr, making it a must-have addition to any whiskey lover’s collection.

Hooten Young was founded by Tim Young and Norm Hooten, Special Mission Unit Member (MSG RET) and real-life “Hoot” from Black Hawk Down – a Hollywood depiction of the Battle of Mogadishu. Hooten Young created its cigars and whiskey as a tribute to the brave men and women of the armed forces who have gone above and beyond the call of duty.
