A bold Bourbon blend from Kentucky finished in California Chardonnay casks.

Trinchero Family Estates was founded more than seventy years ago by Italian immigrants when Mario Trinchero and his brother John moved to Napa Valley, California, from New York to purchase the Sutter Home Winery. The family business has expanded rapidly since then through solid management, organic growth, acquisition, and innovation — including inventing the White Zinfandel Wine category in 1971. Today they encompass brands of Wine and six brands of distilled Spirits — including Ménage à Trois, Sutter Home, Napa Cellars, Amardor Whiskey Co., Tres Agaves Tequila, and dozens more.

Amador Whiskey Co. partners with some of the top Whiskey distilleries in Kentucky to create limited edition, luxury Whiskies. Amador Double Barrel Bourbon is a blend of prime Bourbon aged for three and a half years in new oak. Those casks are shipped to the Trinchero facility in Napa where the Spirit is finished in French oak barrels that were used to rest Napa Cellars Chardonnay for another six months — equally four full years in wood. The resulting Spirit is bottled at 43.4% ABV.

Smartass Corner:
Amador Whiskey Co. should not be confused with Amador Distillery. Both are located in California but are unrelated.

Herb
Herb,
None of these bourbons came close in taste, flavor or heat to some of the better bourbons that I’ve had in my lifetime. (81 yrs.)

Amador double barrel bourbon, has excellent quality, smoothness with a hint of brown sugar. This bourbon quite possibly will become my bourbon of choice.

Super smooth!
 
Ryan
Ryan,
My first quarterly bottle from Flaviar. I’ve enjoyed it, though it’s not one of my top bottles in my young collection. It is a good, affordable bourbon. Surprisingly smooth and easy to drink neat. Don’t think I would go out of my way to buy it again, but it is certainly not a bottle of regret either.
 
Josiah
Josiah,
Good for an old fashioned with a crisp taste... but not a fan of it neat or with a splash of water.

There was no need to mix it. It was delicious as is.

A very good Bourbon with a finish that blew me away.

Great to sip alone or with a cube or two of ice. lovely caramel & spice flavors
 
Jared
Jared,
Absolutely incredible bourbon,
 
David
David,
It’s strangely nice to be sad when a bottle is almost gone - means I was happy while I was emptying it! Deeper flavor without being overly complex, easy to drink without being boring. Cheers!
 
Wilbur
Wilbur,
Loved it. Hint of spicy, with a whisper of maple note, nice mouth feel allover. Very good for sipping neat or with a cube of ice. Would not us as a mixer any mix would take away from this subtle flavors of this one.
 
Brendan
Brendan,
Really enjoyed this whiskey and will continue to look for it in the future. I have had better bourbons, however, for the price this is a great choice. Even my wife who does not care for whiskey enjoyed it.
 
Matt
Matt,
As a lover of oaked chardonnay notes in whiskeys (Jameson comes to mind), I had high hopes for this. The nose is wonderful, but the palette and finish are syrupy sweet. I enjoy some sweeter whiskeys (nothing wrong with Four Roses), but this one has an almost soapy note to it that really turns me off.
 
Dan
Dan,
Was impressed with the flavor and enjoyed it over a couple of small ice cubes. Will purchase again in the near future.
 
Robert
Robert,
Good flavor. I think it is still a little young and has a little heat to it. Not bad overall. It did go down smoothly as a mixed drink in an old fashioned.
 
Dotti
Dotti,
We loved this one, especially in an old fashion. Great color and flavor!

Great flavor, notes of brown sugar with an ultra smooth taste and after taste.
 
MARK
MARK,
Nice and smooth with a caramel finish
 
Ken
Ken,
On the sweet side, but not overpowering. Light and smooth.
 
Jordan
Jordan,
Chardonnay on the nose. Chardonnay comes out on the finish. Spicy heat burns off fast. As it rests on my tongue you can feel it change from bourbon to Chardonnay.
 
Andrew
Andrew,
It was nice to try this one--everyone is saying "smooth" and they're absolutely correct...sometimes I think it's almost TOO smooth and mellow. If you prefer bourbons with a bit more bite left in them, this one might not be worth it to you. However if you're looking for something different or prefer smoother/sweeter bourbons, this one is certainly worth the go. It reminds me of Angel's Envy.
 
Nathan
Nathan,
Great smooth whiskey with a very light vanilla flavor on the finish.
 
Peter
Peter,
2 fingers, 2 cubes - very smooth & mellow - definite hint-hint of chocolate & a subtle whisp of “wineish/grapeish” flavor on the palate - will definitely have more of this bourbon again
 
Moses
Moses,
Smooth goes well with a cigar
 
Drew
Drew,
Super smooth with hints of chocolate and coffee
 
Mark
Mark,
I’m a big fan of a lot of wine/port finishes and this is near the top
 
Paul
Paul,
Nice bourbon. Easy Sipper. Not much of a finish. Sweet - the wine influence not really detectable to me. Good but not great. Worth a try if you like a sweet bourbon.
 
Alan
Alan,
Good choice for a cold and dreary night. Pretty smooth, easy to drink.
 
Robert
Robert,
Upon opening the bottle it had a very nice aroma. The whiskey was a little hot to the tongue. It did very well as a mixer (as suggested on the bottle). Overall, not a bad whiskey.

I don’t normally choose bourbons as I’m a rye girl but this one is very tasty. It makes a nice Old Fashioned.

Smooth a light taste of chardonnay from the barrel was present.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Really nice bourbon. The chardonnay finish imparts a subtle, enjoyable flavor.
 
Tori
Tori,
Good flavor profile, easy to drink. Not especially distinct, this is good on its own and perfect for cocktails.
 
Michael
Michael,
Very easy drinking. Had it neat, was very smooth. Also good with a big rock. Great description by Flaviar on this bourbon. I would get it again!
 
Evan
Evan,
Amador double barrel has great flavor but very little bite to it. The flavor profile is sweeter in nature, but if you enjoy a strong bourbon then I would avoid this. It’s very smooth and flavorful, if thats your thing!
 
Graham
Graham,
Solid utility scotch. A bit harsh, but not in a bad way...puts a little hair on your chest. Would be a great bottle to bring ice fishing.
 
Steven
Steven,
Very smooth front end - with a nutty oaky finish.
 
DONALD
DONALD,
Smooth, light, can taste the floral, to me a little too light and not as complex. I don't taste the biscuit or smoke but still a pleasant sip. Not sure if I'd purchase again but glad I tried it.
 
Jeff

Very good.
 
Alexander
Alexander,
Very enjoyable and smooth. I could definitely taste the chardonnay on the finish
 
Gene

Nice mahogany color. Very smooth sipper served neat.
 
David
David,
Nice aroma. First sip is tricky, smooth on the front of my tongue then the burn going down. Second sip is smooth and it gets better. Definitely nice to have around when you just want a nice sipping whiskey.

Great!
 
Morgan
Morgan,
Great either neat or as an ingredient for a Manhattan or Old Fashion. It’s flavorful and balances well with added ingredients. It could be a great staple to your collection.
 
Jake
Jake,
I found this to be very delicious. Oaky and Smooth with subtle hints of the white wine cask. Highly recommend if you enjoy oaky bourbon.
 
Anthony
Anthony,
Very good. Smooth taste and feel.
 
Alex
Alex,
An outstanding performer & surprise for the price point. The spice/smoke coupled with the sweet/slightly bitter notes of the cocoa, raisins, & dried fruit make this whisky a must try for all palates. You’ll more than likely buy yourself a bottle of you do.
 
Matt
Matt,
Delicious, Sweet at first, then wood comes through, nice Chardonnay hint on finish. Tried with 3 friends we all enjoyed it very much, good value for $$, a definite in the home bar
 
Chase
Chase,
Love the taste and the spice. Smooth finish. Will be keeping this stocked at the home bar!
 
Mark
Mark,
This was really tasty, really nice smooth finish with very small Chardonnay notes on the end. When you read the description you don’t think it will work but it really does. Shared it with a few friends
 
Erik
Erik,
The initial taste I had was very much a bourbon super smooth, not overwhelming strong but definitely recognizable. This was my first double barrel that was not a double oak and I think I may have enjoyed this more! This I one that I will definitely share with as many friends as possible!
 
Mark
Mark,
Very leggy. Hints of caramel and licorice. Nice finish.
 
Shawn

Delicious. Unique style Bourbon, finished in Napa Valley Chardonnay Barrels

Perfect bang for buck... taste and nose is really great. Finish is smooth too...
 
Brian
Brian,
Good flavor. Mellow. Easy drinking.
 
Dave
Dave,
Awesome Taste...some spice
 
Scott
Scott,
So far, I’ve only sipped it neat though there are some intriguing cocktails in the booklet banded to the neck. It’s wonderful sipped by itself, almost to the point where mixing it in a cocktail would be sacrilege.
