Kentucky Owl The Wiseman Bourbon

Kentucky Owl The Wiseman Bourbon....$47.99
The Wiseman Bourbon as its first Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey produced and distilled by Kentucky Owl in collaboration with the Bardstown Bourbon Company. It a blend of Kentucky Owl 4-year-old wheat and high-rye bourbons, along with 5 ½-year and 8 ½-year-old Kentucky-sourced bourbons

The Bouquet is soft and grainy, incorporating heady scents of caraway and wheat toast. Jasmine, ginger, and a bite of black pepper show depth of character. On the midpalate, a burst of apricot is guided along ty mineral undertones. The aftertaste is woodsy, mature, and confident
Rated 94/100 The Tasting Panel

#17 Whisky of the Year - 2021 Whisky Advocate
The first Kentucky Owl release under master blender John Rhea, this bourbon drops the high proof and price point typically associated with Kentucky Owl for something more approachable—a blend of bourbons ranging from 4 to 8 years old. Green apple candies, cinnamon stick, buttered popcorn, and sage on the nose. Ginger spice and sweet bubble gum notes intertwine on a creamy palate along with blackberry tart and cocoa powder. Candied raspberries on the finish are matched with a sustained spice that lingers. —Ted Simmons
