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. We 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.

Lianne
Lianne,
This was by far my favorite. No mixers needed with this one. straight on the rocks. I haven't chilled in the freezer yet. I am going to order my second bottle
 
Derek
Derek,
Sweet and flavorful without tasting like a cheap “flavored” whiskey. Just fine on a large ice ball, but with some ginger ale, it explodes pleasantly.
 
Stark
Stark,
Very sweet/syrupy but overall enjoyable
 
Adam
Adam,
The added ginger flavoring is adequate, but not overpowering. Adds to the base flavor perfectly. However, if you aren't a fan of ginger, take a pass as it is not a subtle flavor.

Brian,
Love it. I am an amateur, so keep that in mind. Traditionally, I have mixed a lot of my whiskies with Coke. I’ve more recently started drinking bourbons neat. I quite enjoy Blanton’s and also like Woodford Reserve. This particular bourbon is not bad price-wise and serves its purpose of as a very nice sipping whisk(e)y over the rocks. It’s sweet in nature. A bourbon purist may not love it. That being said, I love anything ginger and tend to favor sweeter drinks. This hits the spot. It’s smooth all the way through with a nice ginger flavor. I would suggest that since this has a light, sweet flavor that you use an ice sphere instead of cubes because you will lose some of the flavor as your ice melts. If you try this, I hope you enjoy. I know I am enjoying quite a lot as sit with my wife listening to some Dermot Kennedy and George Ogilvie.

Not a bad bourbon but the ginger flavor is fleeting at best

Michele,
I'm not usually a bourbon drinker but ths is wonderful! I made a hot toddy for a cold... Added a bit of lemon and honey... very soothing! Also great as a nightcap.

Unique flavor that was refreshing.
 
William
William,
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.
 
Ted
Ted,
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.
 
Benjamin
Benjamin,
Very nice. Smooth. Easy drinker with just the right amount of ginger.

The ginger makes this pretty much perfection.
