This no-age-statement bourbon is sourced from a Kentucky Distillery in Owensboro and made from a mash bill of 75% American bent corn, 13% rye, and 12% 6-row malted barley. It is aged a minimum of 5 years in new, charred American oak and bottled at 88 proof. Named for John "The Duke" Wayne and reportedly made in the style of whiskey he prefered.

Tasting Notes

"On the nose, this smells like you expect a standard, no-nonsense bourbon to smell like: corn and caramel, a light fruitiness, a hint of cinnamon. In the mouth, you get honey, rosewater, pepper spice, tobacco, and vanilla sweetness. A bit of char and pine show up in the short finish. It's about as recognizably bourbon as bourbon can get without being outstanding in any sense. "
