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.
American Whiskey — Pure Kentucky
Pure Kentucky XO 107 proof 53.5%
Brimming with the usual bourbon flavours of strong sweet white oak, a hint of eucalyptus and big vanilla notes dominate. The heavy rye component adds a real blast of hot spices to compliment the sweetness from this small batch Kentucky Bourbon, bottled at a natural cask strength.
