J.W. Kelly Old Milford Bourbon...$32.99
We have captured the spirit of J.W.Kelly's original bourbon by marrying 5-, 6-, and 8-year-old aged barrels of bourbon, hand selected by our JWK crew. Our Old Milford Straight Bourbon Whiskey is handcrafted in 3,000-gallon pot stills to give it bold and unique characteristics.

Old Milford Straight Bourbon Whiskey is a wonderful caramel color with spicy flavor notes of oak, white pepper, vanilla and English toffee. The unique blend teases your palate with honey, baking spice and nutmeg as well as hints of coffee and fine chocolate. The finish is long with cinnamon, white pepper, barrel char and a slow warming heat. This is an amazing drink that needs nothing added. Enjoy it straight up or with a cube of ice.
