Bowsaw American Whiskey Bottling Note

This here Bowsaw American Whiskey, a wonderfully creamy straight corn whiskey produced in Kentucky. The name is a nod to whiskey traditions, named after the cooper's saw used to cut the heads of whiskey barrels. This buttery whiskey is a winner when paired with ginger ale and a lime slice.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Buttered popcorn, milk chocolate-dipped banana and chai latte.

Palate More sweet popcorn, with chocolate peanut praline, maple syrup and fresh pancakes.

Finish Cinnamon butter and vanilla sponge cake.

Reviews for Bowsaw American Whiskey
Liquid brass, but not liquid gold
On the nose Bowsaw is very mellow, with butter, popcorn and an interesting soupy, creamy chanterelle-profiled smell. Not very spicy to say the least. Fairly sweet, but nothing too special.

On the mouth the profile tries to open up, but doesn't really get there. It's butter, popcorn, light saltiness, chanterelles and even slight bitter oakiness, but the taste is only a linger, nothing too much in the finish. It does remain as a semi-long finish, but just like snacks after a cinema night, the profile feels like it does overstay its welcome.

Tge finish is very mellow, but adequate. Not very clean, to say the least. Solid corn whiskey, though.

So yeah, it's a good one to give for friends for a try, but I cannot recommend this as a top bottle. However, it's still fairly mellow and does have a nice variety in taste, so it is not all in vain; quite the contrary. It's like listening to old music; it feels good for 15 minutes, but after a second dram I feel like drinking something sweeter, like rum to combat the butter in my mouth.

My verdict? 82/100. Very much a friend's whiskey; a mixer. However not a faux pas as a serving whiskey; paarticularly to new acquaintances. This is not high-level, but somewhere in the class of old-fashioned, meaning this can be a surpriser over a cocktail or at a friend's house, but will disappoint, if you expect something complex and mind-blowing, while drinking alone and listening to your favourite tunes. This is simple, yet moderate. Be prepared, if you sip on this. This is for someone with an interest of keeping things simple, but this is not for someone with more of a multi-layered taste, which wants to develop and expand.

Great Corn Whiskey
Got a bottle as a gift as they knew i am a big lover of bourbon. Had to do a little research why it’s called corn whiskey rather than bourbon and found out it’s because of very high corn mashbill ( minimum 80%). The first smell notes reminded of tequila. The taste fixed it all. Really good tasting whiskey if you are into American whiskey. Next one to try- mellow corn

Don't buy it
Worst bourbon I've ever tasted. Not any sweetness or smoothness. It was so expensive I thought it would be better. Maybe I try to mix it with coke.

Corn on the cob with a side of buttered popcorn
This liquid gold is distinctly buttered corn on the cob with a Popcorn chaser. It is sweet and subtle with a wonderful buttery mouth journey, prepared to be pleasantly surprised!! 91% corn mashbill is very apparent and is more CORN whiskey than other brands, really worth a try!!!

Vanilla popcorn
Awesome, the level of corn in the mash is hugely recognisable in the nose and especially the taste. So unique and it stands as a reminder of US spirit history.

Popcorn in a bottle, proper nice stuff!!
Really nice corn whiskey this. Sweet, popcorn taste. Nice aftertaste again of corn and popcorn and more sweet stuff. If you like a high corn whiskey cant go wrong with this. 5 star will be buying again!

Do not buy this whiskey
I am not sure who provided the tasting notes on this but it is genuinely one of worst whiskeys I’ve ever had. Avoid this whiskey wouldn’t even recommend as a mixer... For an alternative at the price point I would recommend heaven hill.
