Blade and Bow Kentucky Straight Bourbon is a premium bourbon whiskey with an extensive aging process that includes 22 years of aging. It is aged in charred white oak barrels and has a unique flavor profile that includes notes of sweet caramel, vanilla and toasted oak.
It is a smooth, full-bodied bourbon that is suitable for sipping neat or on the rocks. It has a long finish with a subtle sweetness that leaves behind a hint of caramelized sugar.
The name Blade and Bow is a tribute to the five keys that hung on the door of Stitzel-Weller Distillery when it first opened 85 years ago. These keys represented the five steps in the making of bourbon: grains, yeast, fermentation, distillation and aging.
Unlike most bourbons, Blade and Bow is blended using the solera method, which means that they rotate varying barrels of bourbon ages and blend them together to create a more complex flavor. There are so few distilleries that use this aging technique, which makes it a very unique product.
The price of the Blade and Bow is a little higher than most bourbons, but it’s definitely worth checking out for its distinct flavors and unique story. It is also a great gift for a bourbon lover or whiskey enthusiast, especially if they have a passion for the history and culture of bourbon. You can find it at many liquor stores, and even online. You can purchase a bottle for $50, which isn’t bad for such a high-quality bourbon.
