Top 5 Bourbons and the Flavor Profiles

Bourbon is America's native spirit. There is no drink as full of history as an American Bourbon. Bourbon has to be distilled according to specific guidelines to earn the name, including being made from a mash of at least 51 percent corn, getting aged in new charred oak barrels, and bottled at no less than 80 proof.

Sipn is here to help you navigate the complex world of Bourbon.

Here are the top 5 Bourbon flavor profiles you should try:

Woodford Reserve 2022 Kentucky Derby 148 Bottle
