Journey into the captivating world of Kentucky Owl Confiscated as this exceptional spirit finally graces the shores of Australia! Confiscated pays tribute to the barrels seized by the US government during Prohibition.
The legacy of Kentucky Owl stretches back to 1879 when C.M. Dedman founded the distillery on the serene banks of the Kentucky River. They produced “The Wise Man’s Bourbon” for decades, until Prohibition intervened, halting its illustrious history. Those barrels were never seen or tasted again.
Thankfully, the brand was revived in 2014, continuing the tradition of excellence and innovation in the world of bourbon and now to your lips here in Australia.
Exuding elegance with its flavour profile, Kentucky Owl Confiscated presents delightful notes of oak, caramel, mesquite banana bread and dark chocolate on the nose. The taste is a blend of soft oak, caramel and the essence of vanilla wafer in banana pudding, complemented by a finale of spicy citrus zest on the finish that leaves a lasting impression. At 48.2% ABV this outstanding spirit is perfectly balanced, with a sweetness anchored by enough dry oak and spice to delight bourbon aficionados of all styles.
Standing as a testament to the unwavering dedication to the art of bourbon craftsmanship, at the heart of this exceptional bourbon stands the renowned Hall of Fame master blender John Rhea, celebrated for his unparalleled expertise. With an illustrious 40-year career, receiving countless accolades, Rhea gracefully emerged from retirement to infuse his vast knowledge and experience into the crafting of Confiscated from four different distillates.
“Kentucky Owl Confiscated stands as a testament to the dedication and artistry that goes into every drop of bourbon, crafted from four different distillates, aged 12, ten, nine and five years, this full-flavoured and fuller-bodied bourbon promises an exceptional experience for whiskey enthusiasts seeking the finest,” Kentucky Owl Confiscated master blender John Rhea explains.
