Stats – 57% alcohol, aged in new charred oak, batch 09-148, from Kentucky Bourbon Distillers
Price – $55
Color – Very dark amber
Nose – Sweet and maple
Palate – Much like a concentrated Rowan’s Creek, also from the talented folks at Kentucky Bourbon Distillers (part of the Willett family of brands). The added proof goes a long ways here. It is sweet from the beginning, but also rich and nutty. The body has a spicy character, almost rye-like. But cherries and plums take the attention of the body here. A nice warm brown sugar at the finish mellows down the remainders of the spice and alcohol burn. A fabulous bourbon!
