Our John. J. Bowman Bourbon commemorates the great, great uncle of Abram Bowman, who founded A. Smith Bowman Distillery. We hand selected from some of the oldest barrels in the warehouse and produced a single barrel bourbon with hints of toffee, leather, figs, and almonds. John. J. Bowman was awarded World’s Best Bourbon in 2017.
Whisky Advocate, 89 Points - Triple-distilled bourbon from Virginia. Actively aromatic, blowing right out of the glass: tart berries, hot corn, oak, and stick cinnamon. Hot, but surprisingly soft and light for 50% (triple distillation?), with sweet corn and more of the berries, wrapped in oak and a touch of char. Everything persists to the finish, including the heat, leading to a twist of oak at the end. Manages to be big but light at the same time.
