THESE NEW BOURBONS ARE WHAT WE ARE DRINKING THIS FALL.
September kicked off National Bourbon Heritage Month, marking an official salute to the fall season. Fall is the perfect time of year to cozy up and sip a brown spirit involving a smooth flavor, and a hint of caramel, and spice. This is also the season for bourbon releases- Everything from craft distilleries, to annual limited release bottles, has us eager to awaken our senses with some imbibing rich and robust bourbons.
As we have described before, bourbon is a whiskey that is only so when it is distilled in the US. Also made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn and stored in new charred-oak barrels that are distilled to no more than 160 proof. To welcome fall, we have listed the best new bourbons that you should be drinking right now. They are perfect for those sweater weather drinking moments that include you + fireplace+ rocks glass in hand, filled with something dark and delightful.
Weed Straight Bourbon
WEED, which stands for We Embrace Equality & Diversity released an award-winning straight bourbon. Their amber-orange liquid draws in smoky aromas of oak and roasted hazelnut giving way to fruity notes of crisp apple and ripe citrus. The finish is a touch of sweetness, with a lingering warm smooth flavor.
