Character Goatson
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.

Appearance / Color
Hot Amber

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma has a wonderful note of buttermilk biscuits with warm butter over notes of vanilla, cinnamon, espresso, and interesting florals.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The palate is bold with a nice spice up front followed by a wonderfully complex flavor profile of Cracker Jacks, baking spices, sultanas, more florals, a dash of cocoa, and a hint of smoke.

Finish
The finish is long and a bit dry on the back palate.

Bourbon matures quicker than Scotch due to higher temperatures in American warehouses.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Bourbons are very high in vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
At any given time, there are more barrels of Bourbon in Kentucky than there are people. The population of the Bluegrass State is about 4.4 million. Today there are more than 5 million barrels of Bourbon sitting in the rick-houses of that Old Kentucky Home. That’s nearly 300 bottles of Bourbon per person, or about 60 gallons each.
Sure, Kentucky gets all the press when it comes to Bourbon. And with good reason—nearly 95% of it is produced there. But Bourbon can be made anywhere as long as it's within the United States. Just ask states with budding distilleries like Illinois and New York.
Bourbon rules refer to manufacturing methods rather than location. Bourbon must be matured in new and charred American white oak casks for at least 2 years. If the bottle has no age statement, the Bourbon is at least 4 years old. No coloring or flavoring of any type is allowed, and the mash bill must contain at least 51% corn.
