Motörhead Ace of Spades Straight Bourbon

Brew Pipeline recently announced the launch of Motörhead Ace of Spades Straight Bourbon, its latest collaboration with rock legends, Motörhead. This 90 proof, high-rye bourbon was aged four years on charred oak and is produced and bottled by award-winning small-batch Proof Artisan Distillers from Fargo, ND. While receiving a limited release last august, popular demand now has Brew Pipeline fulfilling orders across the U.S., including online orders via Craft Shack, shipping to 41 states. 

The following tasting notes are provided at


An initial distinctive “In-Your-Face” punch of high rye bourbon, quickly evolves to a rounded balance of sweet notes including butternut, vanilla, and toasted oak. A balanced combination of spicy-sweet, which is in contrast to the predictable dessert-like sweet.


Spice and grains take the lead with cinnamon, rye, black pepper, and a hint of mint. The 90 proof warmth quickly eases into full-bodied bourbon notes of oak, caramelized brown sugar, tobacco, and cocoa. Complex waves of spice and sweetness take alternating turns with each approach of the tasting.      


The waves gradually subside from full-bodied bourbon to sweetness, to wax walnut, and ultimately ending in a single note: Cinnamon. A single note that lingers and resonates – like echoes from the amplifier – ACE OF SPADES.
