 Even though it carries a. high price tag, it’s hard to deny that Kentucky Owl Bourbon Batch #12 delivers a quintessential classic sip that won’t disappoint those who pay its asking price.

In 2014, Kentucky Owl started releasing their bourbon batch blends which were originally brought to market by Dixon Dedman.  Kentucky Owl Bourbon Batch #12 is the latest batch by Master Blender John Rhea. He blended 7- to 14-year-old bourbons with two different 4-year-old bourbons to create Batch #12.  

Kentucky Owl Bourbon Batch #12 is a quintessential bourbon through and through. The sip kicks off with a great combination of scents that balances sweetness with more grounded aromas that draw you in. The midpoint contains classic well-defined flavors that are nicely enhanced by the bourbon’s higher proof, but never feel overpowering. While the finish doesn’t quite live up to the nose and palate, it still delivers a satisfying ending to the sip. Past batches of Kentucky Owl bourbon have carried high price tags, and Batch #12 continues that trend.

Tasting Notes:

Kentucky Owl Confiscated is a complex bourbon with distinctive flavor. There's plenty of vanilla and oak, but layered atop that are notes of aniseed, green cardamom, cherry, and brown sugar. It drinks hotter than one might expect, but enjoyably so; it's a whiskey that can be simply enjoyed but also rewards exploration.
