Duke Kentucky Straight Bourbon
Crafted by Masters, and inspired by rare bottles unearthed and preserved for over 50 years from the collection of John Wayne.
Meticulously blended to replicate and honor the tasting notes and profile preferred by John Wayne using his original recipe from 1962 and his private collection to guide flavor and aromatics. A proprietorial mash bill of predominately American bent corn with additions of rye with sixth row barley.
Distilled and aged in Kentucky the old fashioned way, in small batches and aged in heavily charred new and hand built American Oak barrels. A special blend at 88 proof, aged a minimum of 5 years in barrels hand selected for perfection.
Opens with subtle charred oak, roasted nuts, hints of vanilla, caramel & nutmeg. Mid-palate provides warm pepper spice & toasted nuts, finishing with a deeply satisfying robust sweetness in perfect combination.
