To preserve the subtle sophistication that makes it so sharable, Basil Hayden’s is aged to the perfect expression of its novel, spicy-sweet flavor profile.
Booker’s® Bourbon is a rare barrel-strength bourbon, bottled uncut and unfiltered*. But you obviously know a good bit about bourbon, because you don’t end up here by mistake.
There’s no faking full bourbon flavor. It has to be earned. So that’s they do in Clermont: they earn it. Knob Creek distillers start by selecting the finest grains. And finish by meticulously aging their whiskey in white oak barrels with maximum char, for an unmistakable richness and signature sweetness. It’s the natural way. And there’s just no cheating nature.
Bill Samuels, Sr., simply wanted a whisky he would enjoy drinking. That's why Maker's Mark® is made with soft red winter wheat, instead of the usual rye, for a full-flavored bourbon that's never bitter or hot. To ensure consistency, distillers rotate every barrel by hand and age the bourbon to taste, not time. Each and every bottle of Maker's® is still hand-dipped in signature red wax at their distillery in Loretto, Ky., just like Bill would have wanted.
Aroma: Woody oak, caramel, vanilla and wheat prevail in the nose.
