Thank you for your service. And the Bourbon!

There's no doubt about it ― 9/11 changed everything. The story of Horse Soldier begins just a few days later when the USA sent the first few Special Forces teams to Afghanistan. It was there that a brotherhood started forming, one that would lead a team of veterans through several major conflicts and ultimately to Bourbon-making. Fueled by family values, adventure, and pride, they continue making history with their award-winning all-natural handcrafted Whiskey.

While their production plant is being erected in Somerset, Kentucky, they are collaborating with Middle West Spirits to distill their Spirits in Columbus, Ohio. The Premium Straight Bourbon has a mash bill of 65% corn, 30% rye, and 5% barley and is aged for 2-4 years. The delicious non-chill-filtered Whiskey is bound to win you over with its caramel, toffee, fruit, and spice notes ― just as it impressed the panel at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, bringing in a Double Gold Medal. Then there's the bottles! They have created bottle molds out of steel that has been recovered from the World Trade Center after 9/11 and was donated to them by The New York Port Authority. If there ever was a Bourbon that was forged in fire, this is it.

Appearance / Color
Amber

Nose / Aroma / Smell
There's a definite fruitiness on the nose with apples and cherries. Toffee and a touch of buttered corn round it up nicely.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
It's equally fruity on the palate with apple and plum, as well as spicy oak, caramel, honey, vanilla, popcorn, and custard.

Finish
The finish is woody with lingering notes joined by a hint of leather.

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.
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.
"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."
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.
Bourbon Is a ''new barrel Spirit'': One of the legal requirements for Bourbon is that it only be aged in brand new oak charred barrels.
