The Wiseman Bourbon brings Kentucky Owl's own distillate to market for the first time, rye on the way
Kentucky Owl is releasing a new blended bourbon to complement their lineup of popular small batch releases.
The Wiseman Bourbon features Kentucky Owl's own 4-year-old wheat and high rye bourbons, distilled in collaboration with Bardstown Bourbon Company. Those bourbons are blended with 5 ½-year and 8 ½-year-old sourced bourbons from an undisclosed distillery in Kentucky.
This is the first release from Kentucky Owl's Master Blender, John Rhea. Previously serving at Four Roses as Chief Operating Officer, he was inducted into the Kentucky Bourbon Hall of Fame in 2016 and joined Kentucky Owl just this past June.
According to Rhea, The Wiseman "leads with a beautiful caramel flavor and aroma followed by notes of allspice, citrus fruit and a nudge of oak."
We also spotted a TTB label approval for The Wiseman Rye, which we expect to see in the coming months. The Wiseman Bourbon is priced at $60 per 750ml bottle. Preorders are available now through ReserveBar.
