The last drops of Bourbon from a legendary still, squeezed into a bottle.

The Stitzel-Weller Distillery is stuff of Bourbon legend. It was founded on Derby Day in 1935 by Julian “Pappy” Van Winkle himself and some of the most legendary Bourbons and brands were made there. The distillery itself was closed in 1992 and is now a museum-like adjunct of Bulleit Bourbon Experience, owned by Diageo. But there is a lot of left-over Weller Bourbon in the storage lofts, along with “orphan” casks from other distilleries. Blade & Bow Bourbon blends these Bourbons solera-style to produce their range of two Whiskeys.

Blade & Bow Bourbon Straight Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey… the first thing you might notice is there is no age statement. Don’t let that throw you. Since this is a blend of orphan casks, accurately stating the age would be a near impossibility. But this is all premium aged spirit aged in all the right ways, and blended from some of the finest Bourbon distilleries in the world. It’s rich and thick and you should judge it with the tongue. And due to the fact that no more Whiskey flows from the stills at the Stitzel-Weller Distillery, this tasty-train will one day come to an end, so make sure you get a sip first.

Hot and nice flavor
Very smooth.
A smooth whiskey with a hint of malty sweetness. Absolutely delicious.
Am a Rum drinker by preference. Never cared much for bourbons. Ordered this based on the reviews and to have something to share with my friends that are. WOW is all I can say, this will be a staple in my home until they run out!
My favorite bourbon... other than Van Winkle 12 yr Special Reserve. But it feels good to find a great bourbon without a big price tag that is well worth the money! Bought two bottles on a trip to Louisville, wish I would have bought a years supply. It will be a sad day when Flaviar doesn't carry this bourbon.
Smooth and sweet, not much complexity. I don't buy into the marketing hype
Delightfully strong upfront with subtle tones of Carmel and vanilla and a smooth finish very happy with it!
The stuff of legend.
Really premium. Amazing for the price point as well. How bourbon was mean to be made.
Some of the best that I have ever had
So smooth and light with great flavor. One of my favorite bourbons!
Really enjoy it. I live in Louisville, KY and brought a bottle of Blade and Bow with me on vacation. It''s very nice, opens up nicely with a splash of water. Good price, too, as shelf price in Louisville is about $55, although Total Wines & Spirits has it for a few $$$ less. Many local people have relatives who worked at Stitzel Weller. I'm going to pick up several more bottles as soon as I get home. Get it while you can!
