Proof66 Notes

Charles Goodnight 100 Proof bourbon hearkens to the call of the old "bottled-in-bond" 100 proof variety of bourbons. It is aged for 6 years sourced from an undisclosed location and undisclosed grain bill, though it appears to be a "high rye" style of bourbon. They also claim to use the "highest levels of char possible," which suggests to us the "alligator #4 char" and provides the rich, earthy-driven taste idolized by many bourbon drinkers. The name is for Colonel Charles Goodnight famous for being both a cowboy and a Texas ranger.

The bourbon is produced by contract out of California-based O'Neill Vintners & Distillers but owned and managed by David Foley of Foley Family Wines. This leads to an interesting whiskey that is sourced out of Kentucky (from the Austin Nichols distillery, maker of Wild Turkey bourbon according to an interview with David Foley in the October, 2014 edition of Tasting Panel Magazine), bottled and blended in California (according to the filing with the federal Tax and Trade Bureau), and named for an historical Texas figure. The bourbon and style is personally overseen by David Foley himself.
