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.

The hint of ginger root brings out apricot notes along with more sultanas, vanilla, and a warm oakiness.
 
Finish 
The finish is long with a dry, ginger-spice after-burn.

Bourbons are very high in vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
Bourbon rules refer to manufacturing methods rather than location. Bourbon must be matured in new and charred American white oak casks for at least 2 years. If the bottle has no age statement, the Bourbon is at least 4 years old. No coloring or flavoring of any type is allowed, and the mash bill must contain at least 51% corn.
Straight Bourbon must be matured for at least 2 years. If a bottle has no age statement, it’s at least 4 years old.
Bourbon matures quicker than Scotch due to higher temperatures in American warehouses.
Bourbon only needs to be placed in a new oak container for a few seconds to be called Bourbon. Fresh from the still and unaged Bourbon is called a White Dog. Recently, many of the larger distillers have started packaging this harsh, clear grain spirit for sale.
Bourbon was declared "The Official Spirit of America" by an Act of Congress signed by President Lyndon Johnson in 1964.
