Kentucky Owl Confiscated Kentucky Straight Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USA
Tasted June 20, 2022
Deep, dark amber color. Fragrant, complex, and fruity nose shows peaches and apple pie, saddle leather, freshly split oak, vanilla, and noticeable but pleasant heat. The heat (96.4 proof) takes a leading role on the palate, with pepper, some woody and slightly bitter tannins, and a touch of cooling menthol. Brief vanilla on the finish. Kentucky Owl Confiscated merits attention: it holds its own in terms of aromatics, but doesn't follow through as strongly with its flavor profile and finish. It's pleasant to drink, but not a great value. It retails around $130 here in CT; I was able to purchase this from a friend of a friend's liquor store for about half that. N.B. All spirits tasted neat in a Glencairn glass.
