Accoladed, amazing and 100% New York Straight Bourbon.

In the old paymaster building in the Brooklyn Navy Yard, there’s a proud red-brick building that houses the first distillery in New York City since the Prohibition. And even if it’s under a decade old, it’s actually the oldest distillery in Big Apple. They offer insanely great expressions such as Peated Bourbon, Chocolate Whiskey, Moonshine or Winter Spice Whiskey, but one of our favorites is the no-nonsense Straight Bourbon.

It’s made from local organic corn and malted barley from the United Kingdom. The booze magicians distill it twice using copper pot stills and age it in new charred oak barrels. The rich corn aroma, sweet oak sap, and flavors of vanilla and caramel persuaded the judges at San Francisco World Spirits Competition thrice: they got Double-Gold in 2019, Gold in 2017 and Bronze in 2018. Forget beards and skinny jeans – Williamsburg is now the Gotham kingdom of Whiskey.

The temperatures of American warehouses are much higher, so the pace of maturation is much quicker for Bourbons than for Scotch Whiskies

Joseph
Joseph,
Simply not a fan. I didn’t make it through the first glass.
 
Rob
Rob,
Very sweet and very smooth. I drink on the rocks. I think its great.
 
Kaleb
Kaleb,
It’s ok, but not even close to worth the price. If you’re going to spend $70 on a bottle, don’t make it this one.
 
Ryan
Ryan,
An american whiskey with a hint of the highlands. Smooth robust but easy to drink whiskey with a light smokiness that won't turn away non-scotch drinkers.
 
John
John,
Couldn't stand this one. The first one I had to dump out for how horrible it tasted.
 
Timothy
Timothy,
For a $70.00 bottle of whiskey it is not that great, the color is beautiful, the bottle is a great edition to my bar, however, the nose smells like it is going to be excellent, then the initial taste smooth butterscotch, with vanilla notes... but the finish is astringent cheap new oak barrel. Not impressed! This will be the last whiskey we will buy from New York.

Very warm, spicy, long finish, vanilla
 
Antti
Antti,
It is a good, complex, Straight Bourbon Whiskey that has a bitter birth with hints of smoke, vanilla & caramel; while a bold & spicy life adds notes of vanilla, cinnamon, fruits & butterscotch; that leads to a quick & drying death with hints of apple & chocolate.

Jeff,
Nice and sweet with a hint of smoke up front, but then too heavy on the spice at the end
 
Todd
Todd,
6.5. With a little more age this would be pretty good. Sweet with a little spice.

Stephen,
Good flavor, with a nice finish. The butterscotch is not overwhelming and gives a distinct profile.
 
John
John,
Nice and sweet start. I wish the spice wasn’t there I would have really loved it. Wouldn’t characterize it as spicy by any means. But the little bit threw me off.

Zachary,
Nice buttery flavor. Smooth finish.

Angela,
Sweet nose, smooth throughout. Carmel hints and very good overall
 
Brendan
Brendan,
Sweet, gentle nose with dark berries coming through, possibly cherries. The butterscotch comes through immediately on tasting, but this resolves quickly. Spice then comes in immediately with the vanilla moving through. The sweet berries stay with you the whole time. Bourbon is truthfully not my favorite as I usually find it to be too sweet, but this was very enjoyable. I would absolutely consider getting a bottle for my home bar.
 
Burton
Burton,
Very dark for a 2 year bourbon. Traditional bourbon notes on the nose, vanilla and butterscotch, a little cinnamon and chocolate. Something extra.... Some mesquit e wood maybe? The palate follows suit. Nice oily mouth feel. Very nice. Worth a buy.

Sweet cinnamon with buttery Carmel flavors.

Great color, holiday flavor cinnamon spice and everything nice
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Color is a dark copper, with reddish hues. Nose starts with a blend of butterscotch and vanilla. Deeper notes of apple, corn, and malt come through. First sip is less sweet than the nose lets on, but follows the nose flavor profile, with vanilla influenced by malt and butterscotch. Mouthfeel is viscous. Additional notes of faint chocolate and youthful corn are also present. Finish is a short, with a mild cinnamon note. Overall, punches above its young age, but not well enough for its higher priced weight class.
 
Stefanie
Stefanie,
The apple flavor is the only thing that ruins this for me. Butterscotch is upfront. Makes me miss Coney Island and Jersey Shore part of my childhood. Apple in the middle and cinnamon flavor on the back end. Nice but not my favorite.
