The new batches of Sam Houston were crafted from a rare, premium bourbon reserve. The bourbon was aged for a minimum of 12 years and was held to the highest scrutiny for quality, flavor and complexity. Each barrel was hand-chosen, and the current release has been crafted in extremely small batches, using only 3 barrels at a time. Each bottle is individually hand-labeled with specific aging notes and numbered.
Color: Deep amber with shimmering copper highlights
Nose: Soft notes of caramel and molasses present first. Lighter notes of dried fruits and banana bread resound but quickly give way to a smoky, woody sensation. Apple cherry and heavy grains can be sensed throughout.
Taste: An incredible balance between gentle impressions of mocha toffee and buttered corn instantly meld into sweet hints of dried apple, black cherry and molasses. Subtle waves of spicy rye flavor reside but are diluted by a sweeter essence to round out this approachable well-aged bourbon.
Finish: A long, oaky finish lingers on the palate with flavors of brown sugar, orange peel and a hint of clove. Gentle warming is present but never overpowers making this bourbon finish smoothly.
Sam Houston 12 Year Kentucky Straight Bourbon is made from a high-rye mash bill and aged for 12 years in new, charred American white oak barrels with a #4 char level. The barrels were selected by the team at Bardstown Bourbon Co. with just three barrels selected for each batch and each state that it's sold in gets its own batch.
