A sweet Bourbon with a flavor profile well beyond its age.

Wheel Horse Whiskey is produced by Latitude Beverage Company at the O.Z. Tyler Distillery in Owensboro, Kentucky. The distillery is actually owned and operated by a contract producer named Terressentia. There have been a few other acquisitions and name changes along the way, but suffice it to say that the folks know what they are doing and their Whiskies have won a bunch of awards.

Wheel Horse Straight Bourbon Batch #1 is aged the traditional way: in 53 gallon barrels for a minimum of 2 years. For its youth, this dram is shockingly developed and traditional tasting. Crafted from 70% corn, 21% rye, and 9% malted barley, it’s bottled at 101 proof and there’s a creamy mouthfeel with sweet flavors of caramel, vanilla, oak, and rye spice.

At any given time, there are more barrels of Bourbon in Kentucky than there are people. The population of the Bluegrass State is about 4.4 million. Today there are more than 5 million barrels of Bourbon sitting in the rick-houses of that Old Kentucky Home. That’s nearly 300 bottles of Bourbon per person, or about 60 gallons each.
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.
Straight Bourbon must be matured for at least 2 years. If a bottle has no age statement, it’s at least 4 years old.
Bourbons have very prominent notes of vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
Sure, Kentucky gets all the press when it comes to Bourbon. And with good reason—nearly 95% of it is produced there. But Bourbon can be made anywhere as long as it's within the United States. Just ask states with budding distilleries like Illinois and New York.
