Kentucky Owl Batch 9 Bottling Note

Behold, the ninth batch of Kentucky Owl Bourbon! These expressions are highly sought-after, and just generally very impressive indeed - and the brand has an interesting story behind it, too. Kentucky Owl dates back to 1879, created by Charles Mortimer Dedman, but its production ceased when Prohibition came along. In 2010, Dixon Dedman revived his great-great-grandfather's whiskey brand, and the Kentucky Owl spread its wings once again!

Kentucky Owl Bourbon - Batch 9 Reviews

My overall impression is that if the proof were reduced just a bit there would be more flavors -- they are in there, but the alcohol burn is so strong it masks them.

Valentine's Day was on Sunday, so my wife gave me a bottle of Kentucky Owl Batch 9 on Saturday so I could try it Saturday night. The nose was interesting, with leather and tobacco, plus a sweetness (I wouldn't call it honeydew). The high proof creates a substantial alcohol burn, almost so much so that it hides flavors from the palate, although it subsides by the finish. I noted vanilla and a sweet tea flavor, but I have no idea where the the "chocolate chip cookie" referenced in the Tasting Note comes from. The finish is a two-phase: Once the alcohol burn subsided I tasted sweet tea and oak and more vanilla, and then cinnamon, and then more of the sweetness (I wouldn't call it cherry, but sort of like that).
