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.

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.
Bourbon matures quicker than Scotch due to higher temperatures in American warehouses.
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.
Bourbons are very high in vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
"Remember that iconic poster from World War II showing Rosie the Riveter as a patriotic American woman doing her part for the war effort? Well, hundreds of businesses did their part too, and the Bourbon distillers stepped right up with ‘em.

Distilleries all over Kentucky and Tennessee were re-tooled to distill fuel alcohol and ferment penicillin cultures to treat wounded soldiers."
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.
