If there’s any silver lining to the pandemic, it’s got to be the elevated appreciation for the golden brown liquid: bourbon whiskey. Like its counterpart, Scotch whisky, curiosity in bourbon has grown steadily through the years and types are sizing the chance to introduce themselves to the customers. One of the manufacturers which have made its foray into Singapore is Kentucky Owl, an American whiskey model below the Stoli Group. Sought out by whiskey connoisseurs worldwide, the ultra-premium bourbon model was rejuvenated in 2014 however its roots may very well be traced again to 1879.

Originally based by Charles Dedman, Kentucky Owl was identified to be the producer of “the smart man’s bourbon” earlier than the distillery closed in 1916 and his loss of life in 1918. During the Twenties, the US underwent a interval generally known as Prohibition, the place a nationwide ban on alcoholic drinks was enforced which led to Kentucky Owl shedding all of its remaining shares of bourbon to the federal government because it was sized. The warehouse that held the whiskey, near 250,000 gallons, was mysteriously burned down in 1923 and that spelt the top of the Kentucky Owl.

In 2014, Charles Dedman’s nice great-grandson Dixon Dedman revived the model and produced its first batch of bourbon known as “Batch 1”, which took him six years to create. The course of concerned tasting a number of samples from completely different barrels throughout Kentucky after which mixing them to concoct the specified flavour profile. The last mix is bottled at barrel proof, uncut and unfiltered.

For the launch in Singapore, Kentucky Owl will showcase the Kentucky Owl Bourbon Batch 11 from the model’s annual signature, barrel proof whiskey sequence. A single batch is produced every year for the worldwide market and as soon as they’re offered, it’s not obtainable. Thus, every batch is eagerly anticipated by collectors and connoisseurs alike. “Boasting notes of shiny citrus, velvety darkish chocolate and sticky toffee, Batch 11 gives a welcome mélange of mature oak, allspice, honeyed bread, and deep cinnamon palette with a toasted oak, sultana, peppercorn, and recent thyme lengthy end.”

The expression opens up with a caramel flavour adopted by notes of allspice, citrus fruit and a nudge of oak.

For The Wiseman Rye, it’s a straight rye whiskey. Launched in April this yr, the whiskey is a part of the Wiseman sequence and has been listed amongst Whisky Advocate’s Top 20 and Bourbon Review’s Top 10 whiskeys of the yr. “Providing a wealthy and spicy nostril with hints of recent rye bread and slight hints of candy caramel and cinnamon, this whiskey’s spicy character immediately fills the mouth with wealthy rye flavour with a protracted end that begins as recent rye bread, slowly strikes in direction of buttered cinnamon toast and ends with a touch of English walnut.”

Lastly, the St. Patrick’s Limited Edition Bourbon Whiskey is Rhea’s third launch with the Kentucky Owl. He collaborated with Louise McGuane, who’s attributed to reviving the custom of Irish whiskey bonding, to create this particular mix. The whiskey is a celebration of the deep relationship that connects Irish and Kentucky whiskey-making.

The end result, “lengthy notes of caramel, butterscotch and frosted cinnamon roll, with hints of chocolate, orange, sweet floss and a few citrus peel”.
