Character Goatson

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.

Smartass Corner:
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.

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.
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.
Straight Bourbon must be matured for at least 2 years. If a bottle has no age statement, it’s at least 4 years old.
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.
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.
Bourbon only needs to be placed in a new oak container for a few seconds to be called Bourbon. Fresh from the still and unaged Bourbon is called a White Dog. Recently, many of the larger distillers have started packaging this harsh, clear grain spirit for sale.
