Kentucky’s small-town secret distillery has created a smoked white corn Bourbon delivered uncut and unfiltered.

Paul and Merry Beth (MB) Tomaszewski founded the MB Roland Distillery in 2009 near the small town of Pembroke, Kentucky — just across the border from Tennessee, about sixty miles northwest of Nashville. The couple purchased an Amish farm and transformed into a family run craft distillery. They proudly state that their products are "uncut, unfiltered, still and barrel proof." That means that the Spirit goes straight from the still to the barrel, and then from the barrel to the bottle without interruption or any additives — not even water. That’s pretty impressive.

And the majority of the corn used to make Bourbon is a variety called "yellow dent." There’s nothing wrong with yellow dent corn, but the variety has been bred over hundreds of years for yield — more kernels per cob, more cobs per stalk, and more stalks per acre. Whether you are feeding livestock, making breakfast cereals, or are a giant Whiskey company high yield makes economic sense. But high yield does not necessarily mean high flavor.

MB Roland exclusively uses southern white corn which delivers a different flavor profile. For their Dark Fired Kentucky Straight Bourbon they smoke the corn in their tobacco shed prior to fermentation and age it in deeply-charred barrels — it’s like a Bourbon Bar-B-Q. And it’s bottled unfiltered and uncut straight from the barrel with an ABV ranging between 52.5% and 57.5% ABV.

The flavor profile reminds us of Jack Daniels but a bit sweeter with a cornbread note and thick cherry cordial thing on top.

"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."
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.
Bourbons have very prominent notes of 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.
Bourbons are very high in vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
Bourbon was declared "The Official Spirit of America" by an Act of Congress signed by President Lyndon Johnson in 1964.
