Founded in 2010, Kings County makes handmade moonshine, bourbon, and other whiskeys out of the 117-year-old Paymaster Building in the Brooklyn Navy Yard. They use New York grain and traditional distilling equipment to make distinctive spirits.
Name: Bottled in Bond Bourbon
Color: Dark Brown
Nose: Caramel, butterscotch, apricot and sundried toffee. Very strong and overpowering, can definitely smell the ethanol.
Palate: Oak, iodine, and caramel with apples and brown sugar. Nice burn with a warm mouthfeel. Raisins, milk chocolate and butterscotch cookies. Overall its very heavy on the palate but in a good way.
Finish: Dark and long with a good amount of dry burn, fruit and sweetness and complexity between the sweetness and the char of the oak. Reminds me of other Kentucky bottled in bond bottles.
Price: $65 for 375 ML
