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 — Rowan's Creek
Rowan's Creek Small Batch 100.1 proof (50.5% Abv)
An artisan bottling of Kentucky Bourbon from Bardstown, Rowan's Creek is made from a combination of barrels of whiskey, aged for between 5 and 15 years. It carries a spicy, strongly sweet palate with lashings of fresh oak and molasses-rich flavours and a nutty pecan note.
