A blended Bourbon from the heart of Kentucky, finished in French oak, that is a brilliant daily sipping dram.
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.
Daviess County is one of the core brands at Lux Row Distillery. The French Oak Barrel Finished version is a blend of two mash bills — one high rye and the other wheated. Both are aged for four years in new oak. Then the Spirits are married and finished in French oak 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
On the nose, warm honey leads the way with a nice mix of vanilla, caramel, and graham following along.
Flavor / Taste / Palate
The palate has a slick, viscous texture and adds a bit of chocolate mousse, a medium spice, and rolled oats to the party.
The finish is medium-length with a melange of wood tones bringing up the rear.

We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.
