Whiskey born in love, now revived.

Love is one of the best reasons to live. And love is one of the reasons this Whiskey exists. It was in 1879 when Charles Dedman married and got a large parcel of land on the banks of the Kentucky river by his father-in-law as a wedding gift. He built a distillery there and started producing Bourbon. When the terror of teetotalism and temperance came, the Feds seized millions of dollars’ worth of Bourbon and shipped it up the river to be stored in some warehouse (and most definitely imbibed by the very Federales).

Then, that warehouse was either burned to the ground by accident or burned to the ground by Al Capone himself. In any case, those gallons were lost, and Kentucky Owl disappeared. Until Charlie's great-great-grandson Dixon came around and made his ancestor's wish come true: bring back Kentucky Owl. Dixon did some magic and a small batch of high quality Bourbon came back to life.

This bottle is the first rye Whiskey by Kentucky Owl. It has notes of pine, honey and vanilla with oaky undertones and rich consistency. It's tamer than its cousins and it should be enjoyed while sitting by the fire. Not that it's mandatory, it would just feel awesome.

Ridiculously good rye.

Mike,
I had Batch No. 2 first and absolutely love it, one of my favorite Ryes ever. Now on to Batch No. 1; the nose is incredibly different as the oak s so deep it smells like a Kentucky tobacco barn filled with tobacco and hardwood mulch but right as they are adding the hot coals to fire cure the tobacco someone dumped a truckload of grandmas holiday fruitcake in the mix! Much more rye spiciness than Batch 2 deffinately sets fire to my gums and numbs the back of my tongue. Oak forward with More Christmasy spice on the finish nutmeg and cinnamon. If I have to choose Batch No. 2 edges out Batch No. 1 by being more balanced.

Brock,
Amazing. Everything you want from a whiskey. Fruit, aromas, oily, with a substantial mouth-feel. Super smooth. a higher proof that will take some water nicely.

I honestly don’t believe the other review tried this. It is a honey bomb and delicious, but Flaviars prices are a joke!

Wesley,
Spicy dill pickle juice with some drying oak from nose to finish. Very spicy . I am not a fan of ryes (although I enjoy Michter’s Toasted Oak) so take my two - three star rating with a grain of salt. This might be for you if you’re a fan of ryes.
