A down-home Southern Bourbon with a kiss of exotic spice.

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. You’ll find that railroad theme carried through in many of their Spirits.

Ginger is one of those things that just lends itself to Whiskey-pairings. We could get all “Whiskey Science Guru” and talk about aromatic esters and the interactions of Various alcohols with acidic compounds to tell you why. But that would actually spoil the magic a bit.

Suffice it to say that Virgil Kaine Ginger Infused Bourbon is a good idea whose time has come. They take their signature Bourbon base with a mash bill of 60% corn, 36% rye, and 4% malted barley and infuse it with a small amount of yellow Hawaiian ginger sourced from a local farm. Now, some other Spirits use flavorings to hide something — that NOT the case here. This is a solid, classic Bourbon with just a kiss of ginger to bring out the magic.

Appearance / Color
Warm Amber
 
Nose / Aroma / Smell
This dram tickles the nose with a bit of ginger right up from, then delivers orange zest, rolled oats, and honey.
 
Flavor / Taste / Palate
The hint of ginger root brings out apricot notes along with more sultanas, vanilla, and a warm oakiness.
 
Finish 
The finish is long with a dry, ginger-spice after-burn.

Just enough ginger to make it interesting. I mix it with straight bourbon for an out of this world cocktail!
