Willet Distillery 70cl/53.5% (107 Proof) Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Kentucky Straight XO is a high-strength, small-batch Kentucky Straight bourbon bottled by Willett Distillers (formerly known as Kentucky Bourbon Distillers), one of the USA’s largest independent bottlers.
Widely regarded as one of the highlights of the KBD range, Pure Kentucky XO is bottled at 107 US Proof (53.5%) and although it’s long been rumoured to be from the neighbouring Heaven Hill distillery, that’s never been formally confirmed and KBD do source their bourbons from various other distilleries (as well as distilling them themselves at Willett Distillery since 2012), so we’ll probably never know for sure.
Pure Kentucky XO Bourbon Tasting Notes | Batch 21-12
Aptly named, because when you think of Kentucky, you think of Bourbon. The nose is toffee, fruit, eucalyptus, and oak. The palate is cinnamon, toffee, caramel, pepper, oak, and spices.
|Cask Type||Charred American oak|
