I really like this. My profile except I could handle a bit more booze kick.
Blade & Bow Kentucky Straight Bourbon
Sean,
Not quite as smooth as I hoped. Bit of an alcohol burn. And was looking for a little more sweetness to it.

Delicious! It has a strong brown sugar and caramel nose with a great finish!

Brandon,
This bourbon is a tease. It has the name and pedigree, which is what convinced me to give it a try. It's fine. It seems has a nice start, but a disappointing finish. It's smooth enough, but not exceedingly so; it has the hints of brown sugar, which is nice, but not much else; and a nice kiss of oak. It will not disappoint anyone, but for something that leans on the Weller name, it's just not remarkable enough to separate from the pack.

Blade & Bow Kentucky Straight Bourbon
Nick,
Diageo had been sitting on the last bourbons distilled by Stitzel-Weller for years and finally decided to make something of the love and lore of the heritage distillery. Opting for the solera method of aging, likely to capitalize as much as possible on the Stitzel-Weller name, Diageo launched the Blade & Bow straight bourbon whiskey on Derby Day in 2015. I was drawn in as much by legend as by the beautiful bottle and dark, rich bourbon inside it, and never having tried a solera aged bourbon decided to pick up a bottle. The nose doesn't have the caramel or vanilla that I prefer in bourbon, but it has light and airy notes of toasted oak, peaches, and chocolate, and is enjoyable all the same. The mouthfeel is oily but not quite enough to be rich. The palate is sweet with earthy notes that I cannot place. Further sips bring apricot and a hint of baking spice. The finish is on the long side of medium and is warm with toasted bread and faint apple. I know enough to know this is good bourbon, but the flavor profile does not necessarily fit my taste. I am interested to see how some ice opens it up a bit and might make this something I use in a cocktail, but I don't see myself sipping it. Or spending another $50 when this bottle runs dry. There are better bourbons for the price.

Blade & Bow Kentucky Straight Bourbon
guest,
Incredible bourbon. So smooth, perfectly aged with a balanced blending of oak. Medium finish. There is something incredible about this bourbon, but I lack the refinement to describe it in words. We bought four fifths. Get some!

Blade & Bow Kentucky Straight Bourbon

It was fine. I was expecting more from the pedigree. It's definitely solid, but there is plenty out there that is more enjoyable for the price.

Absolutely outstanding! Couldn't stop drinking it, it just gets better with every pour. Smooth, sweet caramel, not too sweet, just delicious. Went back to the ABC store and bought it all!

This is my current go to bourbon. I like drink it on the rocks. It has a good smooth finish with flavors of cinnamon and caramel.
Blade & Bow Kentucky Straight Bourbon
Joshua,
Really good bourbon, high priced feel for not that high of a price. I prefer a higher proof, and this one at 91 proof delivers. it has a bite to it in the beginning, but goes down smooth. I will be seeking this one out again, it doesn't break the bank, but it tastes as tho you paid for the high end. I do not believe you can go wrong with Stitzel Weller.
Blade & Bow Kentucky Straight Bourbon
Debrenee,
I had to revise my ranking. I’ve tried it multiple times, but it’s not the quality you’d expect out of a $50+ bottle. I feel most of the taste is drawn from a strong presence of alcohol, something that is absent or at least well hidden in others at this price point. Regrettably, one of my worst purchases. Don’t trust the hype!

Has the familiar smell of Weller but a distinctly different taste. It is complex and smooth, has a nice finish. Does not fall at the top of my favorites but a quality bourbon for sure.

Blade & Bow Kentucky Straight Bourbon

Caramel, butterscotch Blade and Bow bourbon is a good bourbon. It’s not an exciting bourbon, but it is a good bourbon.

Good upfront taste, sweeter, with a smooth finish.

Big burst of up front spiciness that gives way to complex fruit and caramel notes. Long finish with an almost coffee? Note

It has a good aroma and very easy on the tongue. I did think the finish was a bit flat.
Blade & Bow 22 Year Old
Antti,
It is an outstanding, balanced, Kentucky Straight Bourbon by Stitzer Weller Distilling Co. in Kentucky aged for 22 years. It has a delicate birth with notes of toasted oak, vanilla bean, fig & a hint of caramel; while a smooth & smoky life adds notes of torched sugar and apples baked in honey & spices; that leads to a quick & oily death with hints of raisin, anise, tea, fruit & citrus.
Blade & Bow Kentucky Straight Bourbon
Phil,
Very good.
Blade & Bow Kentucky Straight Bourbon
Tristan,
Amazing and easy to approach nose. Smooth with caramel and orange blossom notes. Finishes incredibly easy.
Blade & Bow Kentucky Straight Bourbon
Steven,
A good bourbon, and I appreciate the presentation of it. It's nothing to write home about, and I'd compare it to the taste profile of a Maker's 46. I don't think I'll actively seek it out in the future.
Blade & Bow Kentucky Straight Bourbon
Tammy,
Very nice leaves a touch on the tongue smooth sipping bourbon
Blade & Bow Kentucky Straight Bourbon
Alex,
One of my favorites, Has an incredible aroma & taste to match. The spiciness is there, so is the caramel & such. Packs enough punch without being overpowering. Bourbon fanatics & beginners alike can drink neat & enjoy. Never a bad choice and one of the best,
