  • Sonoma West of Kentucky Bourbon

Sonoma County West of Kentucky Bourbon No 1 700mL ABV 47.8%


Product Description

Produced from a double distillation in directfired pot stills, this version is a nod to the founders of this Californian Sonoma distillery and their distant relatives who were the first to distil yellow corn in the Western United States. Also composed of unmalted rye and cherrywood-smoked barley, its aromatic and gustatory palette is both classic and extremely unusual, just like its very complex, fruity register.

Profile: fresh with lots of vitality. The midpalate has a caramelised, roasted (coffee, mocha) sweetness.


  • Appearance : deep yellow with glints of burnished gold.
  • Nose : rich, deep. The initial nose reveals maize in all its golden splendour. It develops with notes of biscuits and new oak. Once aerated, numerous spices appear (ginger, clove, nutmeg). Later, it’s the stone fruits (apricot, peach) turn to emerge. Everything is enveloped in vanilla and liquorice.
  • Palate : firm, lively. The honey attack quickly moves into cloves. This gives it great tone. With freshness, it becomes herbaceous and mentholated. The midpalate has a caramelised, roasted (coffee, mocha) sweetness. Empyreumatic (eucalyptus, new oak), it is also fruity (pear, apple) and floral (lily).
  • Overall : long, silky. Red and black fruits (strawberry, blackberry, cherry) and woody spices (saffron, cinnamon) give the end of the palate lots of elegance. It lingers with notes of toffee and nougat. The retro-nasal olfaction is characterised by incense and candied oranges. The empty glass marks a return to maize.
