This past Sunday was the season 4 finale of AMC’s hit television show “The Walking …
It is no secret to anyone who reads my reviews that I am a huge fan and firm believer in bourbon. Bourbon has tons of character, flavor and warms the human soul. John B. Stetson Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is made from an undisclosed distiller somewhere in Kentucky that brings some mystery to the story of this bourbon. John B. Stetson was originally made famous from his hat collection, however this bourbon is good enough to put him on the map for his bourbon whiskey as well.
John B. Stetson Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is a four year old bourbon that is priced around $28 to $30 a bottle and hits the palette at 84 proof. I found this at a liquor store in Clearwater, FL and bought it with zero influence what-so-ever. When you drink bourbon of this quality you do not drink it any other way besides straight up or with one/two ice cubes.
Once poured in a glass John B. Stetson Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey shines an amber/light brown. The smell gives off a strong regular whiskey scent with a hints of oak and citrus. When I take my first sip of John B. Stetson Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey I immediately get butterscotch, carmel and very subtle hints of vanilla. After about the second glass you are most likely going to fall in love with every sip. This bourbon is very good and provides a smooth yet dry aftertaste that leaves you wanting more.
The downside of John B. Stetson Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is that their is absolutely no love between the whiskey and the company that makes it. This whiskey may be very good but their isn’t any history of the distillery in the bourbon, which lowers the X-Factor for me. That being said, the graphic design on the label is fairly appealing. John B. Stetson Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is priced around $30 a bottle, which is a steal for the quality. I am a history buff. When I buy whiskey I am looking for great taste, a great look, a solid marketing campaign and great backstory. If you can find John B. Stetson Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey I would suggest you buy it and thank me later.
