The 2019 release for Brown Forman's King of Kentucky 15 Year is scheduled to be released July 2019. This is just the second release for this newly resurrected brand which launched the summer of 2018. Like that release, these are single barrel releases so expect the proof to vary from 125-130 range. Aged for 15 years, these are bottled without chill-filtration at cask strength. Only 2000 bottles produced.

Tasting Notes

"Intense, well-knit but potent aromas of oak and leather come first, with a gust of heat behind them. Tannins and alcohol bring a drying and zippy tingle to the front of the palate, yielding to a classic whiskey right around its peak - any older would be a mistake but this hits the sweet and peppery spot. Great bourbon."
