The growth of the Kentucky Owl American whiskey brand is one we saw take a major leap forward earlier this year with the debut of their first nationwide bourbon release, known as Confiscated. It was a first for them, having at one time been a small cult label limited to just Kentucky. Now they’ve reached another milestone in the latest release of their flagship bourbon, taking the form of the highest proof offering to date.

Palate: A union of the sweet fruitiness from white grape and creamy notes of cinnamon roll and vanilla, the liquid crawls back for significant oak, honeysuckle and caramel notes, and ends with a spice finish that stretches across the back of the palate.
