Blaum Bros. OldFangled Knotter Bourbon 9 Year
Blaum Bros. // Indiana (further aged & bottled in Illinois), USA
Described on the label as "The Oldest Straight Bourbon Whiskey We Never Distilled," the guys from Blaum Bros have no problem telling their fans they sourced this whiskey from Indiana. Hand-selected 8 year-old whiskey is aged an additional year the Blaum Bros' way to make up this cask-strength bourbon (which was just released in September 2016).

"As with many cask-strength spirits, this whiskey starts out intense. Once the heat settles the scent of vanilla, cherry, and touch of orange can be found followed by a bright and fun bubblegum scent. Don't fear the burn--this is surprisingly mild and very creamy for 112.5 proof. It is, of course, spicy with lots of wood but that's a very welcome taste. If the heat is too much, add a bit of water to reveal a dab of salt."
