And now for something completely different — Peated Bourbon.

The good folks at Kings County Distillery were named Distillery of the Year by the American Distilling Institute. Founded in 2010, they were New York’s first distillery since Prohibition. Some shops talk about “passion,” “innovation,” and “craft” processes, but these guys live and breath it. Everything about them screams quality and simplicity. And all of their products are packaged in medicinal-style flasks with typewriter-written labels. Because, after all… you are buying their Bourbons, Whiskies, and Moonshine for the flavor, not the fancy packaging.

King's County Peated Bourbon is just what it sounds like and we’ll bet you’ve never had anything like it before. It is definitely a Bourbon from the get go. But the barley in the mash comes from Scotland and has been malted and dried over peat smoke — just like they used to do in the old days on Islay. The results leave us at a loss for words, but in a good way. It tastes like a smoky Single Malt, but also like a young Bourbon. Heck, we get to sample hundreds of new spirits each year and this is the first time we’ve ever seen anything like it.

Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland and some other parts of the world distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and USA they spell it Whiskey.

Ratings & Reviews
The caramel and the smoke mix together well. This is definitely worth a bottle.
Just really good bourbon whiskey with a hint of peat. Great color and a sweet taste that getting you coming back for more. Don’t let it sit too long at room temp it will cloud up on you.
It’s okay. Had on tour
Nice,smooth, tasteful really taste the Carmel
Very nice. Loved the taste of this bourbon.
Peat in the nose is very strong. Fantastic attribute for its name. Taste, like many have stated, is a well stated bourbon with a fantastic touch of peat.
I absolute love this bourbon. Being a huge fan of heavily peated scotch whisky, I found this to be right up my alley. This is certainly not heavily peated by any means, but a great example of how a little peat can go a very long way to adding character to what I'm guessing is an already exceptional bourbon. I'll be trying to get my hands on a full bottle and some other expressions from Kings County. Bravo!
