Kentucky Owl "Confiscated" Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey (750ml) (Previously $120)

SKU #1419444 91 points Whisky Advocate

Outer quote mark The nose is spiced—cinnamon, allspice, clove, pepper—and rich with cooked fruit—blueberry jam, stewed plums, pomegranate molasses—as well as roasted peanuts, vanilla, and oak. In the mouth, there’s more liveliness, with Big Red gum, cherry pie, blackberry cobbler, peanuts, and cinnamon-apple coffee cake. It wraps up beautifully, with chili-chocolate, roasted nuts, and cigar end. Kentucky Owl doesn’t disclose the ages of the bourbons used in this bottling, but the balance of maturity on the nose and verve on the palate work to excellent effect. (SSB, Fall 2019) Inner quote mark

91 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark With some time in the glass, a pronounced vanilla aroma comes forward. The silky palate opens with allspice and cinnamon roar, evolving into warming espresso, cocoa sweetness and a coconut fade braced up with clove and faint citrusy acidity. (KN) Inner quote mark (6/2020)

K&L Notes

The Dedman family held out against Prohibition for as long as they could, but federal agents eventually raided their property and seized 250,000 gallons of Kentucky Owl in barrel. Those barrels were transported by barge to a federal warehouse that mysteriously burned down, and the legend is that rather than go up in flames the barrels were spirited away to be enjoyed at illicit speakeasies. About a century later, Dixon Dedman has revitalized the brand by blending together some of the best bourbons in Kentucky.
