Very Old Barton 100 Proof Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey has been carefully distilled and aged for generations in Bardstown, Kentucky. This bourbon has been matured for four to six years in charred, American oak casks before being bottled at 100 proof (50% alcohol by volume). As a result, the bourbon has a vibrant amber color and an aroma of vanilla beans and chewy leather.
This classic bourbon whiskey has a bold and rich taste that goes down smooth, just as it has for decades. The opening sip rushes rich flavors of vanilla bean, exotic close, and worn leather over the tongue. As the experience progresses, the sheer mass of this whiskey has realized. The velvety body flows through the pallet, leaving a trail of royal splendor. The finish is as decadent as the beginning.
The smooth yet complex flavor of bourbon makes it quite versatile for drinking many ways. Connoisseurs and casual drinkers alike can experience the easily approachable taste. Bourbon tastes magnificent straight up or on ice, but the depth of flavor makes for brilliant craft cocktails and classics, like the Manhattan and the Old Fashioned. Enjoy!
