Character Goatson
A rich and buttery Tennessee style Bourbon at 50% ABV (get some).

In 2008, Stephen Gould and Karen Knight founded Golden Moon Distillery in Golden, Colorado. Stephen had amassed a world-class collection of antique books on Spirits and the art of distilling and they shared a dream to bring this knowledge to life — creating premium, hand-crafted Spirits. In twelve years that distillery has amassed dozens of awards recognizing distilling excellence and their success creating a wind range of Whiskies, Spirits, and Liqueurs.

The newest addition to the Gun Fighter line of Whiskeys from Golden Moon Distillery is an entirely different thing. Gun Fighter 13 American Straight Bourbon is a thirteen year-old Tennessee Bourbon that took home the Gold medal in 2019 at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. It seems that the good folks at Golden Moon somehow got the chance to scoop up a few premium orphan casks, making this a seriously limited edition that may not be repeatable.

Smartass Corner:
When big distilleries assemble their top-tier Spirits, the casks are individually sampled for quality and character. This allows the master blender to assemble the finished product from this group of winners. Sometimes there are a few casks left over. These are called "orphan casks."

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.
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.
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.
