Character Goatson
A bright, corn-forward Bourbon with and old-school character we really like.

Adam Spiegel was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay area. As a child, his family took regular trips up to Sonoma County where he was surrounded by Wine culture. As an adult, he first launched himself into a career in finance. But the Spirits — so to speak — called him. In 2008 he worked alongside a friend to distill for the first time and he was hooked. Shortly thereafter he launched Sonoma Distilling Company where he and his team produce a range of California Whiskies — a list that now include seven core products and the occasional special edition.

To create Sonoma Bourbon Whiskey, Adam has selected a mash bill of 70% California corn, 25% California wheat, and 5% Wyoming malted barley. The fermented Spirit has been distilled on his old-school alembic copper pot still using direct fire heat. And we really appreciate that it is bottled at the perfect ABV — 46%. All of that makes this a delight… a Bourbon that not only tastes hand-crafted, but IS hand-crafted.

Appearance / Color
Medium Amber

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma leans toward Crack jacks and sweet cornbread with additional notes of mixed woods — cedar and sandalwood.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The palate is bright with notes of spun toffee, more Cracker Jacks, dark chocolate, and vanilla fudge… and is that a hint of smoked paprika in the distance?

Finish
The finish is brisk with a bit of heat and sweet staying on the tongue.
Flavor Spiral TM
About the Flavor Spiral
What does Sonoma Bourbon Whiskey taste like?

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Sonoma Bourbon Whiskey and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.

Character Dogson
Bourbon only needs to be placed in a new oak container for a few seconds to be called Bourbon. Fresh from the still and unaged Bourbon is called a White Dog. Recently, many of the larger distillers have started packaging this harsh, clear grain spirit for sale.
Bourbons have very prominent notes of vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
Bourbon rules refer to manufacturing methods rather than location. Bourbon must be matured in new and charred American white oak casks for at least 2 years. If the bottle has no age statement, the Bourbon is at least 4 years old. No coloring or flavoring of any type is allowed, and the mash bill must contain at least 51% corn.
Bourbon was declared "The Official Spirit of America" by an Act of Congress signed by President Lyndon Johnson in 1964.
Bourbons are very high in vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
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.
