Looking for the next great undiscovered bourbon? Check out this tasting brief, which rounds up 27 new bottles from (mostly) craft producers—all boasting unique flavor profiles and, in some cases, impressive scores.
Here you’ll find:
Five bourbons from Iowa, Indiana, New York, and Colorado that prove Kentucky no longer has a lock on America’s homegrown whiskey style
Six bourbons made with heirloom grains, from ancient Egyptian wheat to Jimmy Red corn, plus an experimental bourbon that incorporates peated malted barley
A half-dozen miscellaneous bottles, including two from Heaven Hill’s micro-distillery
We also take a focused look at the “Summer of Bourbon” offerings from independent bottler Lost Lantern. The collection includes several single casks from craft distilleries across the country, as well as two multi-barrel blends that show off the company’s prowess in this arena. Summer may be over, but any of these bourbons are worthy of year-round sipping.
