Founded in 1879 by C.M. Dedman on the banks of the Kentucky River, Kentucky Owl, The Wise Manís Bourbon, has a long and storied history that was interrupted by Prohibition.
In 1916, nearly 250,000 gallons of Kentucky Owl were seized by the government and later disappeared in a mysterious warehouse fire. Every drop of this legendary bourbon was gone ... until now.
One hundred years later, C.M. Dedmanís greatgreat-grandson, Master Blender Dixon Dedman, has resurrected the family bourbon in a series of hand-selected, artfully blended, ultra premium bourbons and now a rye whiskey. Dixon has applied the same impossibly high standards to handcraft the brandís first extension, 11 Year Old Kentucky Straight Rye.
Nose: Honey, nougat, vanilla, cloves, cinnamon, lavender, sweet pine, oaky undertones, not forwardly spicy on the nose.
Taste: Immediately coats the entire palate, rich in consistency. Nutmeg and cinnamon give way to pepper spice with vanilla on the front and anise across the middle. Subtle cinnamon spice clings to the finish.
Batch #1 - 55.3 ABV - 110.6 Proof
