This no-age-statement is one of two Blade and Bow marques (the other being a 22 year old offering). Paying homage to the Stitzel-Weller Distillery which closed in 1992, the bourbon is matured in a solera-style system, using some of the last remaining stocks of whiskey from the old distillery, which is then blended with other whiskeys and bottled on site at Stitzel-Weller.

Tasting Notes

"A fairly straightforward nose of grain, oak, and vanilla predominates with a hint of toasted coconut and a bit of alcohol punch. In the mouth, the initial impression is of a fairly sweet bourbon with vanilla fudge and coconut macaroon, before a surprising secondary note of cinnamon and baking spices rushes in. As it recedes, flavors of oak, toasted almonds, apricot preserves, peppermint and milk chocolate appear. The finish is a bit short, but this bourbon packs a surprising amount of flavor into an approachable and easy drinking whiskey. "
