Carefully hand-selected barrel-by-barrel to offer a robust, mature flavor, this reserve Kentucky Bourbon is aged 9 years in charred new American oak barrels and bottled at 120 proof. Its deep, complex flavors of vanilla, nuts and oak earned it a Silver medal at the 2014 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

"This is a stylish, big, broad-shouldered bourbon with a thick, sweet foundation (nutty toffee, pot still rum, maple syrup) peppered with spice (cinnamon, but also vanilla and evergreen) and dried fruit."
