Clocking in at 116-128 proof depending on the batch, Kings County Barrel-Strength Bourbon is pulled from older barrels than our flagship bourbon, aged anywhere from two to almost five+ years. Many enthusiasts prefer whiskey straight from the barrel, which allows the drinker to add ice or water to taste. Smooth and bold, this is our most flavorful and intense whiskey. Wine and Spirits magazine awarded it Best Bourbon of 2015.
Composed of 66 barrels across three different cask sizes — but built primarily from one of our last remaining lots of 10-gallon barrels — batch #15 features a particularly concentrated range of many of the rich-end flavors that we’ve long considered house favorites. A tightly connected nose and palate both exhibit brandied cherry, viscous maple, mahogany, brown sugar, and toasted malt, while a finish of stewed plum and caramelized shortbread lingers with pleasant heat. - the Distillery
