The whisky is matured for an average of five and three quarter years, and is selected when the flavour profile is correct. The colour is golden amber and the nose is rich and sweet with a lovely combination of vanilla, honey, coconut and spiced orange. The palate is equally rich and sweet, feeling creamy with the aromas from the nose replicated and joined by dry wood spices, oak and further tangy orange zest. The finish is sweet before leaving you with an oaky, drier freshness. Learn More
Kings County Distillery’s Bourbon is made from New York State organic corn and malted barley from the U.K., and aged in new, American oak charred barrels. It is characterized by a rich aroma of fresh corn, balanced with the sweet caramelized oak sap from small casks. It has a very strong sweet base with flavors of vanilla and caramel, a deep molasses taste to the middle notes, and leaves a smooth finish with hints of cinnamon and autumn spices. Aged 12 months or more, this bourbon is a precocious whiskey, surprisingly robust for its age.
