A down-home Southern Bourbon with a kiss of exotic spice.
David Szlam and Ryan Meany were (are) a couple of high-end chefs working in Charleston, South Carolina. They knew flavor and were good ‘ol Southern men. So, naturally they decided to create their own line of Whiskies. The venture was founded in 2013 and named it “Virgil Kaine” after a 19th century train conductor. You’ll find that railroad theme carried through in many of their Spirits.
Ginger is one of those things that just lends itself to Whiskey-pairings. I could get all “Whiskey Science Guru” and talk about aromatic esters and the interactions of Various alcohols with acidic compounds to tell you why. But that would actually spoil the magic a bit. 
Suffice it to say that Virgil Kaine Ginger Infused Bourbon is a good idea whose time has come. They take their signature Bourbon base with a mash bill of 60% corn, 36% rye, and 4% malted barley and infuse it with a small amount of yellow Hawaiian ginger sourced from a local farm. Now, some other Spirits use flavorings to hide something — that NOT the case here. This is a solid, classic Bourbon with just a kiss of ginger to bring out the magic.

Tasting Notes

Appearance / Color
Warm Amber
Nose / Aroma / Smell
This dram tickles the nose with a bit of ginger right up from, then delivers orange zest, rolled oats, and honey.
Flavor / Taste / Palate
The hint of ginger root brings out apricot notes along with more sultanas, vanilla, and a warm oakiness.
The finish is long with a dry, ginger-spice after-burn.
Ratings & Reviews
I think if you like your Whiskey dry, you’ll probably not care for this but I found it delightful. I’m usually a Single Malt guy but this Bourbon was unique to my Palette, enough so that I purchased a bottle for a Cigar buddy who commented that it was sweeter than he had expected, with an ice cube or two he was a happy camper. I will definitely buy it again.
Really not very good. Great concept. Lack luster result.
Much too sweet, similar to many flavored bourbons. This made it difficult to drink beyond the first taste. To be fair, I’ve never been a fan of sweet or mixed drinks. Someone who enjoys those may be fond of this.
Very nice. Smooth. Easy drinker with just the right amount of ginger.
The ginger makes this pretty much perfection.
