John J. Bowman Single Barrel 100 Proof Virginia Straight Bourbon Whiskey commemorates the great, great uncle of Abram S. Bowman, who founded A. Smith Bowman Distillery. They hand-select some of the oldest barrels in the warehouse to produce a single barrel bourbon. John J. Bourbon is made from a mash of corn, malted barley, and rye that is fermented with a proprietary strain of yeast and distilled three times through "Mary," a copper-pot still named in honor of John Bowman's mother. After distillation, the bourbon is aged for ten years in new, American oak casks with a #3 char. Following its decade-long Beautyrest, the bourbon is brought to 100 proof before each single-barrel bottle is filled and labeled by hand. John J. Bowman Virginia Straight Bourbon Whiskey has a fragrant nose of marmalade and soft biscuits with notes of toffee, leather, figs, and almonds. The center-palette is dominated by signature notes of apples and pears, which lead to a long, dry finish. Drink it straight or over ice. Enjoy!
