Kentucky Tavern Straight Bourbon Whiskey
750 ML (Standard)
Again, fairly straightforward and simple at first with brown sugar, burnt popcorn, vanilla, and a bit of candied citrus.A bit more woody than I expected, dusty cinnamon and clove, sawn oak.A bit of peppery rye towards the end.Again, like the nose, it'sa bit harsh, but maybe a little less so than the price would suggest.
Simple, clean, and a somewhat light bourbon nose.A juic orange spiked with cloves along with raisins, vanilla bean ice cream, and roasted corn, Lesser notes of burnt caramel, corn oil, and bright Vietnamese cinnamon.
Shortish and a little empty, with a bit of sweetness, a bit of heat and more slightly burnt, woody notes.
Created by James Thompson, famous founder of the Glenmore Distillery, Kentucky Tavern has been around since the early 1900's .The bourbon was named after a bar and restaurant in Louisville.It's aged for a minimum of four years in charred, new American oak barrels.
