Release #1
Collaboration by Louise McGuane (Irish Whiskey Bonder) and John Rhea (Master Blender)

"100-proof limited release with comforting and buttery aromas of resin, baked peaches and caramel. It shows superb clarity through its sweet flavors of wood, roasted nuts, cream and cereal. Perky notes of nectarine, patchouli, and loose tobacco are buoyed by the finish fo peach nectar"
Rated 97/100 The Tasting Panel

A blend of Kentucky Straight Bourbons varying in age from 4-8 old each
coming in with their own unique flavor characteristics. Rich caramel and vanilla from some more rare well aged Bourbons. Spice and fruit from Bourbons with higher rye content, and a feel of sweetness and citrus from Wheated Bourbon.

Kentucky Owl Bourbon was founded in 1879 by C.M. Dedman on the banks of the Kentucky River. The distillery produced “The Wise Man’s Bourbon” for decades until its long and storied history was interrupted by Prohibition. Fortunately, the Kentucky Owl brand was relaunched with Batch #1 in 2014.

Each Bourbon batch is made from some of the finest bourbon in bottled at 118.8 Proof to bring out the most desirable bourbon flavor. Every new batch is an original with its own unique taste profile, carefully crafted Kentucky and by Master Blender John Rhea. These highly sought after, artfully blended, craft bourbons have become an instant sensation and every batch sells out almost solely by word of mouth.

Louise McGuane (Irish Whiskey Bonder)
Irish whiskey production has long been an all-male industry, but now, with sales soaring worldwide, Ireland has its first woman heading a new label, J.J. Corry Irish Whiskey. Louise McGuane wanted to bring back the tradition of Whiskey Bonding, becoming the first Whiskey Bonder in Ireland in well over 50 years. Her bottlings have already won numerous awards, including a Gold Medal in the Irish Whiskey Awards and the SF World Spirits Awards. I conducted an interview with McGuane to find out about edging into the industry and her intention to be different from her now numerous competitors. -- Forbes
