Ooh-la-laaa

Oola Distillery was founded by Kirby Kallas-Lewis in Seattle's Capitol Hill Neighborhood. All grains for their Spirits are sourced from two organic farms in Eastern Washington. Once the ingredients arrive at the distillery, they are milled and mashed before being distilled through Kirby's copper-pot still.

This incredible Oola Waitsburg Bourbon is really not just a nice medley of corn, rye, malted barley and white winter wheat. It's a deeply complex, balanced Bourbon that’s just the right amount of sweet. Post-distillation, the Bourbon is aged in small, American white oak casks that undergo huge temperature swings of up to 50-70° each day. This extreme climate change enhances the interaction between barrels and Spirit, giving the perfect flavor profile. Expect spicy aromas, with hints of cinnamon, ginger and black peppercorn underlying notes of caramel, vanilla, savory pickled notes and chutney the finish is warming.

Ratings & Reviews
Todd
Todd,
It’s not Pappy Van Winkle, I’ve had once at Cask & Trotters, or Bookers but some of the best damn bourbon I’ve had! Highly recommend.
 
John
John,
Not my favorite, I'm no expert but it seems like it was bottled to soon.
 
Emmy
Emmy,
It's a solid bourbon. Not on par with the best I've ever had but definitely far from the worst. Definitely worth a try.
 
Paige
Paige,
This is a really interesting young bourbon. When first opened it smells distinctly of straight alcohol - that's the youth talking. But if you pour it and let it rest for a time, more floral and inviting notes are clearly present. Flavor wise there are clear notes of vanilla, caramel, and a subtle maple - combined it reminded me distinctly of raw pie dough. I actually really enjoyed it, although it's sweet enough that I think I'll drink it primarily as a dessert. Overall, this is a tasty bourbon that's really exceptional given its age. I'm excited to see what else this distillery will produce in the years to come.

Very sweet! Smooth! Very good!

Justin,
Underwhelming with an overly strong alcohol smell. Higher proofs like old forester 1920 do a great job of delivering a great nose and taste without that all consuming alcohol smell. This bourbon does not. It remains on my shelf and likely won’t be consumed anytime soon.
 
James
James,
This Bourbon is just ok. The most redeeming quality is a sort of pecan palate, nice for the holidays. BUT, the ethanol is far too forward, I can't get much of an aroma outta it and the spice is not as pleasurable as I'd like. I will give it a go in some cocktails.

Christopher,
Nose: For a highly ranked bourbon, there's not much there. Grapes, almost brandy like in smell. After opening up a while, there are undertones of salted caramel. Some peanut shells. Palate: This explodes on the mouth. A really great mouthful. Spice on the attack. Caramel. Wonderful butterscotch. Oak, slightly tannic. Prunes. Finish: Lingering spice. A bit of pleasant heat. Nice. 8/10. If there were a stronger nose, easily a 9.
 
Bret
Bret,
After reading the reviews, I thought I would get more spice out of it. Very smooth, sweet caramel and vanilla. That just seemed to be it for me. The finish was good and long, just sweet though. I like a little more spice on the finish. Good bourbon from my home state!

Evan,
Bronze color with initial tones of butterscotch and caramel. Very good bourbon, worth the money.

It’s good and easy to drink. The spice hits early but then kind of dies off

One of my better fines. I'm glad I bought this local bottle. It comes out very smooth & sweet when you slipping. Very easy to drink. I'll be getting another bottle very soon.

Jernique,
Extreeemeeellyy good!! I am really enjoying it. Had to run around and find it because it was delivered to the wrong person. Glad I found it because it is really good. Smokey and a little peppery at the front end. Then it smooths out and a hint of sweet bourbon and sweet caramel kicks in. Very complex. At the end comes the grain and earthiness. Gotta say I love it! I will get another bottle soon.
 
HOPE

I absolutely loved this bourbon! It was extra smooth, with a slightly sweet finish which I loved. Great with Ginger Ale too!
