Kentucky Spirit was first released in 1994, laying claim to being the second Single Barrel Bourbon on the market. Master Distiller Jimmy Russell personally selects the barrels for Kentucky Spirit when they have reached maturity, between 8-9 years old.
The Haskell's team was offered a selection of barrels to choose from in the spring of 2018. We found one that we absolutely could not pass up!
Our barrel, number 18-0863, was aged for 8 years and 5 months in warehouse F on rick #4. Bottled for us on July 11, 2018, this bourbon is a rich golden amber with a nose of brown sugar, cinnamon and citrus. The palate offers vanilla, burnt sugar, caramel and orange notes and finishes extremely clean and dry with a hint of cinnamon spice.
