A complex and rich sour-mash Bourbon worth every penny.

David Szlam and Ryan Meany were (are) a couple of high-end chefs working in Charleston, South Carolina. They knew flavor and were good ‘ol Southern men. So, naturally they decided to create their own line of Whiskies. The venture was founded in 2013 and named it “Virgil Kaine” after a 19th-century train conductor.

Virgil Kaine Electric Owl 9 Year Bourbon is actually a complicated story — but a REALLY good one. It’s a real-deal sour-mash Bourbon aged a full nine years in new, charred American oak (of course). A mere mortal might stop there. But David and Ryan struck a deal with Revelry Brewery. You see, they have a barrel-aged ale — Wild American Ale — that is itself aged in ex-Pinot Noir barrels. Virgil Kaine Electric Owl 9 Year Bourbon is finished in those barrels before being bottled at an impressive >50% ABV. It’s truly an amazing dram and the owners tell us to get it while you can because they ain’t making no more.

Smartass corner:
"The “electric owl” refers to old-timer railroad-men who worked at night carrying the lanterns and guided the engineers. "

Finish
The medium-length finish is sweet and balanced.

Spicy and harsh. Better for mixing than drinking straight.
