The use of fresh, 'virgin' American Oak barrels is one of the key contributors to the overall flavour of Kentucky Bourbons, bold with spice, vanilla and a strong woody influence.
America has seen a considerable growth of craft and small-scale producers, many of which are eschewing the traditional styles, offering a more diverse range of grains, casks and types of whiskey being produced.
