American Bourbon Blend redefined
 
‘Oppidan’ is a swanky way of saying ‘townsman’ and according to the philosophy of Oppidan Spirits, modern townsmen create better versions of the existing world each day. It’s about finding the next best thing – or inventing it. Distillation is a pretty old business (at least 4.000 years), but sometimes things need an update. Oppidan’s new American school of distilling is the latest upgrade in the millennia-long evolution. Founded in 2015 by Jeff Walsh, Oppidan takes tradition and enhances it with modern experimentation, coming up with exciting new twists and techniques. Situated not far from Lake Michigan, the Spirit Sorcerers specialize in American Gin and Whiskey, pushing the envelope all the time.
 
The elegant bottle labelled “Smoke + Sea” holds a precious Whiskey created from four-grain Straight Bourbon and Solera-aged Bourbon mash bills. The malty and chocolaty Bourbon inherits its smoky and maritime character from French Oak and barrels that used to hold peated Islay Scotch. It’s a harmonious balance of true American Spirit and mysterious shores of Scotland.

Bourbons are very high in vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.

Ratings & Reviews
Thomas
Thomas,
Taste too much like scotch. Couldn’t detect any bourbon notes at all. If you don’t like scotch don’t by this “bourbon.”
 
Monica
Monica,
I love this! Slightly smoky and peaty but still smooth.
 
Kevin
Kevin,
Very nice. Peat and sherry notes go very, very well with a bourbon. This is my first bottle of Oppidan, and I am pleased to make their acquaintance.
 
Topher
Topher,
I love this one. Very nice fruit, vanilla and oak flavor followed by slight peat & smoke.. and finishes with a subtle cocoa flavor.
 
Carol
Carol,
Oh yes this bourbon really grows on you. With the lingering tastes of chocolate, coffee, caramel, it is very enjoyable
 
Imran
Imran,
also love.
 
Taylor
Taylor,
It’s a good experiment, but it seems like some age and a higher proof would suit it very, very well. I’m excited to see where this distillery goes!
 
Ryan
Ryan,
I have really enjoyed about half this bottle and still can’t quite put my finger on all the flavors. Definitely pleasantly smokey but with a malty grain background and sweeter notes of perhaps chocolate and vanilla. A really nice change of pace whiskey to add to a collection that bridges Scotch and American whisk(e)ys
 
Todd
Todd,
This was a little too smokey for my taste...
 
Carol
Carol,
It really grew on me. I do taste the chocolate right at the end. A little scotchy, smoky, but very enjoyable
