A blended of two Bourbons — one high rye, the other wheated — aged four years and then finished in Cabernet Sauvignon Red Wine casks.
In a world of super-mega-conglomerates dominating international liquor distribution, Luxco stands out as one of the few larger, family-owned companies. But they have a large footprint. By our count they have 198 Spirit brands and variants across the full spectrum of adult beverages. If you have sipped at a bar or mixed cocktails at home you have had their products. They own five major distilleries, including Distiladora González Lux, Green Hat, Limestone Branch, Lux Row, and MGP. From this impressive platform they produce some of the most famous Spirits brands in the world.
Like its sister Bourbons, Daviess County Cabernet Sauvignon Finished Bourbon is a blend of two mash bills — one high rye and the other wheated. Both are aged for four years in new oak. But his is where the stories change. After the Spirits are married, they are and finished in Cabernet Sauvignon casks for another six months with the final dram being bottled at a very pleasant 48% ABV.
The original Daviess Country Distilling was a fixture of Kentucky Bourbon-making in the late 1800s before Prohibition took a whack. Lux Row has revitalized the brand nicely with a trio of offerings.
Appearance / Color
Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma is light but balanced with notes of vanilla flan, brûlée sugar, blackberry and raisins, and a bit of apple.
Flavor / Taste / Palate
The palate follows the aromas, but brings additional notes of caramel truffles, Cracker Jacks, tannins, and just a dash of spice to a creamy mouth-feel.
The finish is long, sweet, and warm.
