Small-batch, high-corn Bourbon from Kansas with a spirited kick.

The story of Union Horse Distillery starts with four siblings and a friend. Eric, Damian, Patrick, and Mary Garcia-Gallagher and entrepreneur Kris Hennessy founded the distillery in 2010 near Kansas City, Kansas, under the name "Dark Horse Distillery." But it turns out that a few other similar businesses had similar names. All the legal wrangling was finalized in 2015 and the business has operated as Union Horse since then. Their family-owned and operated business consistently churns out a quality range of five award-winning American Whiskeys and Vodka.

Union Horse Reserve Straight Bourbon Whiskey is all made on-site in a 500-gallon column pot-still named "Chester Copperpot" — definitely small-batch stuff. Uniquely, the sour-mash bill is 80% corn and 20% rye with no barley at all. Instead, they use active enzymes to smooth-out the fermentation process. The final Spirit is aged between two and five years in new oak and bottled at a perfect 46% ABV.

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

Bourbons are very high in vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.

William
William,
Very smooth for a young whisky. Great cocktail bourbon
 
Rex
Rex,
As a scotch drinker this is my first try of a bourbon. Very nice. Enjoyable and not harsh. Sweet.

Ryan,
This has been one of my favorites so far- and something my husband can drink with me. We generally have different tastes, but agree on this one. The vanilla notes on the nose come in pretty strong and I feel like the smoke comes up a litter earlier than might be indicated by the spiral and I get a little flash of spice in there. The finish lingers for a while, but it's not at all overwhelming. I thought I got a bit of sweet cream in there too. There will be more of this in my future.

worst bourbon i have ever had. the peat flavor completely covers any other flavor that may be in there. looking for someone who likes heavily peated whiskey to give it to.

Great flavor spiral. Love the rich caramel and cherry and vanilla. The bite is a tiny bit harsh, but mellows with 2 drops of water.

Smooth, buttery, delicious!
 
Perry
Perry,
I thought the flavors were very muted and the strongest taste was alcohol. It tasted more like vodka than bourbon. An ice cube helped bring out the flavor a bit.

Bret
Bret,
Union Horse reserve is smooth and sweet. Can taste the vanilla and caramel. Not as spicey as I like, especially on the finish. If you like a sweeter, less spicey bourbon, this is a good choice at a good price.
