Cooper's Craft Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Cooper's Craft // Kentucky, USA
Cooper's Craft celebrates the role and heritage of the coopers, who meticulously construct and repair barrels for whiskey making. It was specifically created as a tribute to the Brown-Forman Cooperage, which has been operating since 1945, and is the only American brand to have its own for making new barrels. It also marks the first new brand the company has launched in 20 years. The bourbon is matured in Brown-Forman Cooperage barrels, then filtered using a proprietary beech and birch charcoal-filtration system and bottled at 82.2 proof.

"This light and fruity bourbon has so much apple and pear flavor it nearly resembles apple brandy. That's not a bad thing, especially with its smooth, toasty notes, dark caramel, creamy vanilla, lemon zest and mild, sweet spices. Finishes quite sweet with just a slight flame of heat and a tinge of leather. "
