The first Bourbon we’ve tasted aged in new French Limousin oak cask, yielding a striking and unique flavor profile. 

Saint Cloud Kentucky Bourbon is Spirited redemption story. Ray Walker went to France and founded Maison Ilan to create Gran Cru Wines in Burgundy. After an initial successful liftoff, his Wine making in France came to a crushing end. Ray returned to the US — now residing in Holt, California. He founded Saint Cloud Kentucky Bourbon in 2016 — representing his return to the world of Spirits, and 2019 marks the first Whiskey release.

There is a lot of interesting things to say about Saint Cloud Kentucky Bourbon. The mash bill is kept confidential, but in interviews, Walker has indicated that it is comprised of more than 70% corn, less than 20% rye, with the balance in malted barley. We also know that it is a sourced blend. The Spirit was distilled in 2016 and bottled in March of 2019. In between those two dates, the Bourbon was aged in new French Limousin white oak casks — almost unheard of for a Bourbon! This fascinating Bourbon is bottled at a cask strength of 60% ABV without any filtering — enhancing its allure and flavor profile. And the bottle presentation is striking with a modern profile, minimalist labeling, and copper medallion pressed into the glass.

Dark Amber.

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The Spirit addresses the nose firmly with surprising fruit notes — apples and peaches — and thick caramel notes.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
On the palate there is a rich, oily mouth feel with notes of cinnamon and ginger up front and lingering flavors of apples and raisins with more caramel on the back.

Finish
The finish is medium length with the heat morphing into sweetness.

Bourbon was declared "The Official Spirit of America" by an Act of Congress signed by President Lyndon Johnson in 1964.
At any given time, there are more barrels of Bourbon in Kentucky than there are people. The population of the Bluegrass State is about 4.4 million. Today there are more than 5 million barrels of Bourbon sitting in the rick-houses of that Old Kentucky Home. That’s nearly 300 bottles of Bourbon per person, or about 60 gallons each.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Straight Bourbon must be matured for at least 2 years. If a bottle has no age statement, it’s at least 4 years old.
Bourbon must be made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn.
Sure, Kentucky gets all the press when it comes to Bourbon. And with good reason—nearly 95% of it is produced there. But Bourbon can be made anywhere as long as it's within the United States. Just ask states with budding distilleries like Illinois and New York.
