Sam Houston 12 Year Kentucky Straight Bourbon is made from a high-rye mash bill and aged for 12 years in new, charred American white oak barrels with a #4 char level. The barrels were selected by the team at Bardstown Bourbon Co. with just three barrels selected for each batch and each state that it's sold in gets its own batch. Only two states received the first release: Texas and Tennessee, both states that Sam Houston held the office of governor.

Tasting Notes

"This well-aged bourbon delivers ample sweetness on the palate, with notes of vanilla, light tobacco, and butterscotch. Elevated proof and a bit of spice balance it out quite nicely; it's straightforward in profile and very enjoyable for sipping."
