Kentucky Senator’s third Bourbon offering, the John G. Carlisle Release, is hitting shelves this summer. This highly-anticipated release is labeled after the esteemed U.S. Senator John G. Carlisle because he was a stabilizing force in the liquor industry and a leader of the Bourbon Democrats in Washington D.C. He was a major advocate for the Bottled-In-Bond Act of 1897, which is celebrating its 125th anniversary this year. Aged seven years in oak barrels, this pleasantly sweet Bourbon is 107 proof with a mash bill of 75% corn, 21% rye and 4% malted barley. The suggested retail price will be $119.99.

This additional rye in the mashbill makes a noticeable difference in the sip. While the nose is light considering the bourbon's proof, the palate and finish tell a much different story. Full of creamy flavors that blend well with dollops of spice, the bourbon transforms from light on the nose into an easy sipper that still offers ample spice. While prices are high and bottle counts are low, those that find themselves with one in hand should enjoy the results.

With all of our notes in; we asked one another...'was this a purchase we shouldn't have made'. By far it is not a bad purchase. We would not tell anyone not to buy it. If you see it; snag it...it's a low run anyways (something like 1200 bottles).

"I like this pour. I think the 107 proof mark allows for a fair balance of flavor and heat. The strong palate was particularly appealing, although I think from start to finish this was a solid experience."
