We’ve wanted to create our very own Bourbon from the first day of Flaviar.
When we went on a road trip through America, we realized that a great Bourbon must be truly American - a union of diverse wild Spirits that come together for something greater than their sum.
So, after three years of building the most American Bourbon, we’re proud to present Corn Trooper, a glorious blend of seven Straight Bourbons from seven states. Colorado, Texas, Kentucky, Michigan, New York, South Carolina, and Washington are the terroirs that gave the unique characters that went into this craft marriage. The harmony of Bourbons has a powerful nose and a spicy personality with notes of maple syrup, Oak, Cinnamon, Vanilla, Dark Cherry, Orange Peel, and Apple Peels.
There are no words to describe how proud we are of this release. We hope Corn Trooper becomes your next favorite Bourbon.
Nose / Aroma / Smell
Corn Trooper exudes a powerful nose with notes of maple syrup, oak, vanilla, banana, and green olive.
Flavor / Taste / Palate
The aroma is underlined by the spicy character of cinnamon, ginger, orange peel, dark cherry, and apple peels, all translating perfectly to the palate. A sensory grand tour of America.
The finish is pleasantly long and spiced with rich warmth.
I loved it, I was surprised and then amazed, I end up buying a couple bottles and then shipped one to my Mom, she loved it also!
I really didn’t like it straight up at first but when I added ice the water really opened up the flavor. I went from blah to Wow! My whole mouth enjoyed this dram.
Not bad. Light smoke
Wow, this was not good if you like your bourbon neat...it was all ethanol. The ONLY saving grace for this bourbon was if you let it mellow with a bit of ice or water for a few minutes. Then it had a bit of flavor past gasoline. There are SO many good bottles out there, don't waste your time with this one.
Smooth finish. I enjoyed it!
I loved this bourbon! It’s got an excellent sweet flavor and goes down smooth!
This is simply excellent.
Over cooked and I did not find it smooth. Dissappointed
smooth even with high corn content. maybe over-blended with a lot going on...like the Color of Money - lots of good actors don't make a great movie.
I really enjoyed Corn Trooper. Bit of unique flavor from the blend but a lot of different taste, but still has the soft vanilla and caramel that I love in a bourbon. The proof was perfect. This will be a slow drinking bottle for me.
Really enjoyed the Corn Trooper! Very smooth and flavorful. Enjoyed the idea of this being a blend of different bourbons.
I very much enjoyed this offering. It was strong at 101 proof but found it to be smooth and a bit sweet. This is a bottle that I would have on hand to drink often (as opposed to a special occasion type bottle) were it a regularly available offering.
Was little disappointed with this offering. I was sucked into the marketing ploy and thought multiple distilleries will add their value and give a great product. But it ended as "Too many cooks..."
Not a fan! was a bit strong but then again it is a 101 proof.
Don't think I will buy again but that's just my personal preference, I like my whiskey a little smoother.
Smooth, clean taste
Good bourbon. Is a good sipper and works well in cocktails. Love it.
Excellent bourbon. My favorite so far! Buttery, caramel notes, slightly sweet. Lovely going down. Don't tell the purists, but it's great as a mixer, too!
This bottle is a pretty decent bottle. Very spicy on the onset. With so much spice up front hard to tell the notes. But all it is a very good whiskey.
Maple and Red Vine Twizzlers on the nose with a hint of oak. Dried cherries, ginger, and some spiced apples on the first sip, let it linger and banana and orange zest creeps in. Long, slightly spiced aftertaste. Good stuff.
Excellent bourbon... It has a slight sweetness with hints of maple syrup to complete this well-rounded, smooth bourbon blend. I highly recommend it.
Absolutely loved it.
Decent - not amazing.
Being a beginner bourbon drinker, the initial taste was a little shock to the system. But as I drank is, it was better and better. Very good
Enjoyable with a nice flavor.
Unexpected gem! I was expecting a so so house brand and was very pleasantly surprised. All the bourbon notes in full force. And the leftover smell in the glass after it dries was heaven. Oh please tell me you never done that....
Agreed. Always breathe deeply from the glass after drinking. Such a wonderful smell.
My friends and I enjoyed Corn Trooper very much. Sweet with just enough heat at the finish. Nice blend.
Nice flavor. With the higher alcohol content it could benefit from an opportunity to mellow a bit more.
Very enjoyable. At 101 proof, it is surprisingly light and sweet. But at $65 a pop, it’s a little too high to become a constant for me.
Good blend bourbon. Lacked the wow factor. Will not purchase again.
Very enjoyable on the rocks.
Really enjoyed this bourbon. The aroma, taste and finish were all outstanding.
Outstanding bourbon. Extremely smooth.
Flavor there but the comfort of the drink was not there.
Flavor was there but the comfort of the drink is as not there
Love bourbon but not this one
All around I’m very happy with this Bourbon definitely one that I will always keep one in the cabinet.... or two.
Very good blend, I love the taste and I am buying one for me and my mother.
Excellent blend that hits all my preferences. Stands up great on its own and tasty in a cocktail, good legs.
Amazing. Really enjoyed straight up with water back. Very smooth!
Spicy, oak and sweet with a hint of vanilla . It's clean but gets you on the back end with a little pepper.
A little harsh but good flavor profile, good on the rocks or in an old fashioned
Middle of the road Bourbon for me, there are other options I prefer - particularly for price. I initially reviewed this a few months ago and enjoyed the first sips more than subsequent tastings.
Very enjoyable complexity. Smooth with a little sweet
I was a bourbon drinker for most of my life before moving to single malt Scotch a few years ago. I bought a bottle of Corn Trooper for my bourbon-loving brother-in-law for his birthday and he told me how much he liked it so I decided to get a bottle for my bar to have when he visits. I tried it tonight and I can see why he liked it! Very tasty, nice burn going down. An excellent addition to my home bar.
Just a tasty, unlikely, treat.
I have never liked bourbon. I've tried $250 bourbons before. Didn't like them at all. This bourbon was fantastic. I shared it with friends and everyone loved it (myself included). Wish I could get more. We drank the whole bottle in just 2 nights.
Excellent.... Found to be very full bodied and soft. Really filled my mouth with flavors and no burn. A wee bit pricey, but I am wanting to purchase a couple more when it comes available....
Starts off with a very sweet smell. First you get sweetness then you can taste some of the caramel pretty smooth at first then because it's 50% alcohol you get a nice burning sensation down the back end. All in all not too shabby.
Very smooth over a cube of ice. Nice smooth drink with good flavors.
Excellent smooth blend. Would definitely like to acquire more!
has a great nose but a bit harsh if you try to drink it neat but add some ice and water and oh my what a good drink
It was much more harsh than I anticipated from the flavor wheel and reviews. I wanted to like it, but in my opinion, it is overpriced for the quality. I would not recommend it.
Excellent blend! This combination of bourbons becomes more than a sum of it's parts. Very smooth, complex character.
Absolutely LOVED it!!
One of the best bourbons I’ve tried yet. Perfect for sipping or for mixing.
I loved it
So smooth, with a fantastic warm finish!
One of the best bourbons I’ve had.
Great job. Can’t wait to see what you do next.
Oaky with too much of a burn for me. Not as smooth as I would wish for the price.
I’ve had my share...and a few other shares of corn whiskey’s in my days...and I can’t say enough about this one. I purchased it as a gift for a friend for his birthday, and was so happy that he offered me a dram to say thanks. And now I want nothing more than to purchase a few more for my personal bar. It’s truly worth every penny. Salud!!
I found this to be a good, but sweet tasting, bourbon. Good starter whiskey on the rocks for a newbie bourbon drinker.
The first drink was my sons and the expression on his face told me it was very good. Great notes. I prefer it on the rocks or with a touch of ice cold water to smooth it out when it goes down. Glad I bought 2.
Solid go to.
May be my new favorite bourbon for the price. Definite notes of Maple and spice. Oaky but not charred. High proof but no burn. Splash of water makes this my new sipping bourbon. Love the complexity. Different notes in every sip and I’ve had lots of sips
I began to think of how to express the accolades I would write about this bourbon and decided to preview what your other members had to say first....they all pretty much expressed all of what I was thinking,,ha! It is quite a fine bourbon and not only ordered a second bottle, but will make sure I have an extra bottle in reserve.....
Nice vanilla, honey, chocolate like flavor followed by a pretty strong burn. Not very smooth for sipping, but decent in a mixed drink.
This was a great bourbon. The aroma and taste was one of the best I have had in a long time. The notes were great. Drink it on the rocks or with a mixer. Cant go wrong.
Very smooth with a great after taste, it was enjoyed by all.
This might be the first bourbon blend of different distilleries I've had and it didn't disappoint. This was delicious! I ordered a 2nd bottle to have on hand right away.
I won't pretend to know how difficult it is to make your own bourbon, but Flaviar clearly figured out the secret formula.
So good, no, so great, no, So Awesome! only complaint is that it is hard to decide if it smells better than it tastes or tastes better than it smells so be sure, really, be sure to pause part way through for another long whiff, oh, and order and extra bottle right away! side note: if you don't like corn tilt take a pass
Shared with some friends, totally enjoyed by all, worth the price
Shared it with all my neighbors on the street and all agreed it was a great pour! Should include it in a quarterly box!
Clearly the best bourbon I’ve ever had. Thanx for bringing it to my attention
Complex flavor - maybe too much going on.
A few minutes in ice makes it more pleasurable.
I drink a lot bourbon and this is good but not top shelf for my faves.
They were great!
It has a good flavor to it. Sweet and a little smoky. I'd definitely put this in a Manhattan or an Old Fashioned but it's pretty good on it's own. It is priced a little high and I do agree that there is a slight burn in the finish but it still does well.
You really get a good taste of the notes in it. A little stronger of a drink by itself, but mixes well with a Manhattan or Old Fashion in my opinion. Would buy again.
I expected more from this conglomerate of distilleries, but it’s alright. Price is too high for the quality to me.
SMOOOOTH !! This was a great idea to get a blend from differing sources.
Nice flavor in your mouth but it gives you a burn about half way down like you are getting heartburn. Nice attempt but you need to work on the finish for the price point. I classify bourbons as sippers or mixers. This is a mixer.
My favorite bourbon to date, you nailed it Flaviar! Spices, Oak! Bananas, and a wash of Maple Syrup. Can I get another bottle please? Already purchased 3
It was good but had a more of a bit than i prefer.
Corn Trooper has a great flavor with a little giddy up. Well done Flavair
Bananas Foster anyone, this was just fantastic.
This is an exceptional whisky
Enjoyed it very much. Nice addition to the home bar.
Enjoyed it very much. Nice addition to my home bar.
Great job Flaviar! This is my favorite bourbon to date. Love the notes of caramel and spices.. not too sweet and very savory the way a good bourbon should be. Have purchased three bottles to date. Awesome backstory and a exclusive bourbon. Looking forward to your next creation
A little sweet but finishes smooth. Fantastic balance.
New to whiskey tasting. Smooth with a bit of spice.
I like this bourbon. I tried a taste test against two other favorites that I drink on a regular basis. Didn’t think this one would hold up but I actually picked it over both of my bourbon favorites. The favorites I’m talking about cost significantly less than this one and I’m not sure if the price warrants the difference in flavor. I think if it was 50 bucks or less I would be more inclined to buy it.
Probably one of my all time favorites. My Fiancé, who is not a whiskey drinker, even likes it. This. Is. Good!
Expectations were very high and the drink was good but not great.
it was a bit harsher than I would’ve liked. Sorry but I just feel as though it’s overpriced foe the quality. I would not recommend this one.
Nice work, Flaviar! This is a really quality blend. Bright and flavorful. Nose is honey, very light oak, corn. Palate is bright maple, spice, more light honey. The only negative about this bottle is the finish, really. It's almost non-existent. You're left with the feeling of a light alcohol burn and that's about it. Delicious bourbon otherwise. You can really taste the richness of the aged bourbons and the balance that the younger bourbons bring to the blend. Would buy again.
Better than expected. A nice smooth taste with a sweet flavor that is very shareable.
It was OK, I was expecting more.
I normally prefer and drink higher proof bourbons, but I find this blend absolutely delicious. Sweet and soft that's big on maple with a little bit of spice. A little warmth. Finish is short-to-medium. Immediately bought a second bottle.
Amazing flavor profile.
One of my absolute favorites! I love the blend of flavors!
This is a good sipping whiskey that has a lil heat to it. I prefer it on the rocks.
Glad I tried it but I won't be buying it again.
I won't pour it out, though.
It might be a good change of pace every once in a while but it is too harsh for my taste.
Excellent pour. Will be buying another bottle ASAP
Enjoyed the first bottle sharing with my son...Keeping the second bottle to myself. We liked it neat.
Good flavor. Alcohol content a little high for me.
Not bad. I didn’t know what to expect. Good to sip with a couple of cubes in it.
One of my favorites so far. I've had it neat but I prefer it with an ice spear for me.
This one isn't for me. I have tried it neat, over ice, and as a mixer in a Manhattan. It starts out fairly fine but then I get an alcohol blast that lingers for a long time. I need another sip to cool it off but, bang, all over again. Others liked it at a bourbon switch party.
Very smooth, enjoyed it neat
A decent whiskey. I prefer this one over ice.
This is a good whiskey, but somehow doesn't live up to the parts. Its sweet and full of roasted corn - no surprise! - and there's some caramel/maple syrup. Its a solid sipper, but at the price, it's just good. I love seeing people trying new things and this seems like a good idea more than a great whiskey.
Very easy drinking. Smooth and flavorful.
Excellent whiskey! Purchased another bottle!
Very smooth for such a high alcohol content. Maple syrup rounded spicy edges and nice nose. Was great over ice and in a whiskey sour (made with maple syrup).
Great taste, smooth finish and pleasant aftertaste!! Loved this whiskey!!
It’s quite unique - even for a high octane blend. The maple syrup combined with the spicy make for a great sipper. Nice job Flaviar!
I wasn't sure about this at first, as I never cared for spicy liqour. The more I drink this, the more I really am enjoying it. Toasted caramel, with a very strong kick of spice. I have never been a big bourbon fan. This bottle could change me. Pleasantly surprised.
Usually drink Wild Turkey 101 and decided to try Corn Trooper due to my love of WT101. At first sip, I fell in love. The level of smoothness is unreal. It is a great sipping whiskey and a great mixer (but I prefer to just sip on it). The sticker and pin were a cool addition!
This is a great bourbon! The flavor is so good that the bottle is dangerous! It is perfect for this very hard political time and the covid-19 problems we now have.
One of the smoothest best tasting bourbons I’ve ever had in my entire life!
One word: GREAT !!
I am blown away by this bourbon. I have to tell you that I was not expecting this much from this bottle. I typically like things on the spicy side, which is why I love Ryes, but this is great. I love the cinnamon notes. I drink mine neat and I can't get enough of it .
Not exactly what I was expecting. Just a little too much bite for me. I tried it neat, then a few drops of water then an ice cube. None provided a tolerable solution. Will use it as a mixer but can't drink it neat.
Sweet caramel flavor and definitely taste the oak. Complex but easy drinking. I’m definitely liking this bourbon.
Better than most bourbons, good on the rocks.
Easy drinking. Complex profile.
Bright sweet nose, almost like rye
Spiced palate, I can taste the maple note
full-bodied finish, almost smoky
Glorious. Perfect for fall/winter.
I’m comparing this to a Willet. I’m loving the flavor, the feel, the kick. Excellent!
Once again a great bottle! The warmth and hints of spice make this a great drink for cool nights. Flavors seem to be muddled and a bit difficult to taste without ice.
Nice bourbon bite, my biggest issue is it arrived rolling around freely in the delivery box. The shipping material was not secured well enough to keep it free opening.
Excellent flavor no bitterness
Very mild, but not overly sweet or oaky. A nice balance between the two (think Angel's Envy). Very nice neat, not as good with ice.
This is a great blend of others. I thought it was a unique flavor, a good taste, sippin' style neat or with ice, then I read it was a concentrated effort of the best blends in the bottle. I will definitely enjoy the rest of the bottle with others or solo, and it's on the list to buy again. Thanks, Flaviar
Decent enough, but rather mild. Could've used an extra year or two in the barrel.
I rather enjoyed this bottle. So far of all the bourbon I have tasted it ranks very high just a few would I put above it. I will buy again
Once the maple subsides this is a fantastic drink. Too maple-y to begin with but as it opens up it’s a very smooth and flavorful drink. Drink neat but let it open up.
I wanted so much to really like this bourbon. Tried neat. The nose was stinging. The flavor and finish not pleasant. On the rocks drinkable but not to my taste. Sorry guys this is a pass for me.
Very smooth, lots of maple and nutty flavor
Spicier than most Bourbons...in a good way. Really liked it and would but it again.
Sounds like “STORM TROOPER”.
I prefer it neat. Good smooth flavor
This is one amazing dram!! The blend is perfect. I'll probably pick up a second bottle before its gone. Pleasantly surprised.
This is mind blowing. I want a constant supply
Full, butterscotch, toffee, chocolate, a warm, cozy ride. Just a sip goes a long way. Nursed this with crushed ice and had a smooth glidepath.
Very good on Ice, Smooth
Best Corn I've had since I left the hills. Smooth and flavorful. Would go great in a Little Brown Jug.
For me is just a little harsh.
Tried it neat first, as I do all spirits, and it was thoroughly enjoyable... deep, rich, complex, and just damn good. Made a whiskey sour with it and it was fantastic, that sweet corn foundation with plenty of proof and just a touch of bite to stand out and provide balance with the tangy lemon juice and sweet simple syrup.
Very nice Bourbon. Not the high alcohol burn I was expecting. Nose was not overpowering. Nice sweetness on the palate along with oaky notes with a hint of dark chocolate on the finish. More sweet note on the nose with a drop of water. Finish was better neat. Well done Flaviar..,
Excellent, much better than the average bars top shelf.
Great job on this. I was super intrigued when I saw the maple syrup flavor profile, and this nailed it. Good heat without being overpowered and I really enjoyed the flavor and long maple syrup finish too.
Bravo. Very impressed. Wonderful nose of honey and corn, with a palate that is sweet honey up front but explodes into spice on the mid-palate. The finish is unexpectedly short (why it's 9 stars not 10) but has a nice lingering heat and begs you take another sip to get all those delicious flavors back. This may have a very quick "evaporation" rate and necessitate ordering another bottle soon.
Oh, evaporation and angels :) Cheers!
Really well done. I was skeptical of a 7-bourbon blend, but the results speak for themselves. Delicious and easy drinking bourbon. Sweet, a little spice and warmth, and smooth. Don't love the name, but happy to drink it.
Really smooth and easy to drink neat.
Very much enjoyed this bourbon blend...reminded me a little of one my favorites, Weller's antique 107. Would buy again.
Very solid bourbon. It has a nice amount of heat that I enjoyed even with this being a little higher proof than I normally go for. But if you add just a drop of water it cools off that heat just enough to bring out a little more sweetness. You can't go wrong with Corn Trooper if you love a good bourbon.
Perfect for the fall
Great taste, smooth finish. Just a hint of heat, nice color, and overall fantastic bourbon!
Now we're talking. Great nose, and a super finish. The beautiful color tells the story. Definitely notice the oak tones. Glad I bought two!
This is one of the best Bourbons I have ever tried. I bought it with the intention for rare occasions and celebration. I find it hard not to at least have a glass every day since I purchased. Love the story and background behind this bottle
It has just the right amount of heat. The oak flavor is prominent, tasting like it was aged in barrels made from freshly cut wood. With a bit of water or on ice it has a deep almost chocolate flavor. I enjoyed it but did find myself wishing it had a tad bit more sweetness. If you're a bourbon lover worth a try.
Fantastic blend. Corn right up front with a sweet initial taste, followed by a slow, relaxing aftertaste.
