Kentucky Vintage is a small batch bourbon bottled at 90 proof. There is no age statement on this whiskey, but we suspect that it is between 6-10 years old, and probably a batching of whiskeys of different ages. On the nose, Kentucky Vintage is a quite shy. It takes a few drops of water to open it up to big whiffs of caramel and charred oak. On the palate, Kentucky Vintage has a good, full body to it, and it is very sweet. The biggest flavors are brown sugar and caramel, with some oak coming through towards the back of the palate. The finish gives off strong oak, some tannin, and a slight whiff of caramel after a while. When drank neat, the finish is long and warming, but with a few drops of water to open the nose up, the finish is drastically shortened.
