Longbranch means an extending welcoming hand and it's not-so-secret secret is Mesquite. It's the actor's favorite grilling wood and it grows in Texas. They used it to refine the Bourbon and give it "that scent you remember."

Hum and pound your chest like a Wolf from Wall Street and share a sip of this rare and special potion with your Bourbon lover.
