A high-corn, savory Straight Bourbon fittingly named after an all-American hero.

Discussing the producer of Duke branded Whiskies is a bit complex. You see, Even Wayne — John Wayne’s son — is the founder of the brand, but the spirit is distilled at the O.Z. Tyler Distillery in Owensboro, Kentucky. But that facility is really owned and operated by a contract producer named Terressentia. There have been a few other acquisitions and name changes along the way, but suffice it to say that the folks know what they are doing and their Whiskies have won a bunch of awards. But like we said, this brand is a line of three Whiskies named after John “The Duke” Wayne and that alone is pretty cool.

The name alone tells you a lot about what’s in the bottle. Duke Small Batch Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is all of that. The mash bill is 75% American dent corn, 13% rye, and 12% six-row barley. And this fitting tribute to America’s favorite movie hero has been aged a minimum of five years in heavily-charred oak and bottled at a very nice 44% ABV. It’s deeply-flavored and all American, like the man it’s named after.

The temperatures of American warehouses are much higher, so the pace of maturation is much quicker for Bourbons than for Scotch Whiskies

Unique flavor profile, spike of semi-earthy notes up front, not overly caramelized, mellow finish. Will buy again

Wonderful, a spicy sweet bourbon.
 
Jay
Jay,
Nothing special here. No complexity. No real smoothness. No special mouthfeel. The high corn makes this pretty sweet.

Gregory
Gregory,
Neat is smooth with a little bite and full of flavor. Definitely tasted the caramel and vanilla. Not overly oaky, which is good for me. A little ice seems to open up the sweeter ends of the taste. Really good for any occasion!

Classic yet affordable quality bourbon. Good bottle to have stocked in the bar at all times.

Perfect, and that price.
 
John
John,
Probably one of my new favorites. The finish is sweet with a slight vanilla finish. Certainly more JOhn Wayne like neat, more of the spicy. Superb on the rocks. Only a few though, don’t water down the DUKE!
 
Mark
Mark,
Very good and drinkable. Vanilla and oak on the nose is great, and really delivers. Definitely worth the price.
 
Jim
Jim,
Sweet yet smooth. Enjoyable if you don’t want the sugar of an old fashioned.
 
KEVIN
KEVIN,
Good bourbon. Not as smooth as others but very easy to drink. Does better on the rocks.
 
Bryan
Bryan,
Fairly smooth and sweet with a medium finish
 
Lawrence
Lawrence,
Subtly nice and smooth....enough depth for the connoisseur with hints of vanilla, spice and oak. But smooth without that sharp bite in the aftertaste for a novice. A well made bourbon. Don't sleep on this one, worth the price for the quality.
 
Todd
Todd,
Delicious. Very drinkable. Smooth and settled with a creamy vanilla crumb finish. It’s inviting to the whiskey virgin, yet satisfying to the player.

What started our whiskey club. Most loved of all.
 
Todd
Todd,
Worth every penny and a great sip over ice. I find it pleasantly sweet which gives the option of skipping the sugar in your Old Fashioned. This will definitely stay in my rotation.
 
Gene
Gene,
Nice “light “bourbon with a mule kick. The oak dances with a slight sweetness. The finish smooth and warm. I enjoyed flavor journey.
