A rich Bourbon blend delivered at cask strength with a sweet flavor profile rich in caramels and orange zest.

Mike Paladini and his wife Kerry had long agreed that if they had a daughter she would be named Penelope. In 2018 they had that daughter, named her as intended, and founded Penelope Bourbon at the same time with Mike’s childhood friend Danny Polise. As many start-up Spirits companies do, they have launched with a little outside help. In this case distilling and aging in Indiana at MGP and expert blending and bottling assistance from Castle Rock in Kentucky — whom they proudly call part of their team. And the team is working, with two successful releases under their belt and a fistful of awards already in hand.

With each batch, Penelope Bourbon Barrel Strength seems to get better and better. Batch #5 was just released and we are pretty darned excited to tell you about it. First, let’s review the specs.

It’s a blend of three Bourbon Spirits — two with rye in the mash and one with wheat-based. Two of them are aged three years, one is aged four in barrels. All of the casks had a #4 char on the staves and a #2 char on the heads. This is an older version of their core Bourbon set up that forms the foundation of their lineup. Another difference is that it’s bottled uncut at 58.3% ABV. We love the stuff, and we’re not alone. This year it took a Double Gold in San Francisco, a Platinum at the SIP Awards, and a bunch of top recommendations from major magazines.

Bourbon must be made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn.

Tasting Notes

Appearance / Color
Rich Mahogany

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma is deep and rich with sweet notes of orange zest, granola clusters, and vanilla.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
There is an interesting savory smokiness on the palate that forms a foundation for a flavor profile of dark fruits, caramel, more toasted granola, warm oak, and marmalade.

The finish is long and sweet with a feeling of caramel-corn.
Ratings & Reviews
A wonderfully rich bourbon. A little heat at first with a very smooth finish. Highly recommend.
I got this bottle included in my subscription and I gotta say...WOW. I’m not an overly experienced bourbon drinker and have just in the last year branched out. But this has become a top 5 favorite for me. The initial citrus flavors followed by the warmth is just exceptional
Very rich taste, smooth & enjoyable. There's a unique grain flavor that is present throughout, which made this pour wonderful complex. Warm finish but not overwhelming. I quite enjoyed this bottle.
Holy shit this stuff is good. Orange and cake batter for me. Nice punch to it but i love this juice.
That's awesome to hear! I bought this on a whim because why not and I just received it today. I plan on trying it tonight.
