Charles Goodnight Small Batch Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey 50% 750ml
Small batch Bourbon is made for the truest devotee. It tastes stronger and sweeter than other Whiskeys because it is distilled from a key ingredient: corn. It’s also held to higher quality standards than other whiskeys, from what ingredients are used to how long it is aged. For Whiskey to be considered a Bourbon, it must be distilled from at least 51% corn and it must be aged in new, charred oak barrels. Bourbon must be no more than 160 proof, but we prefer to do things like they used to and bottle at an honest 100 proof. Lastly, Bourbon must be aged at least two years without additives of any kind. Small batch bourbon requires determination and creativity. The rich color and distinctive flavors are a testament to the hard work gone into every hand-crafted bottle.
Goodnight Small Batch Premium Bourbon is made from a marriage of hand-selected, six year old barrels. It has a markedly gentle, yet bountiful, aroma of vanilla and caramel, with trails of honey and spice on the palate and smoky tobacco on the finish.
