Proof66 Notes

Duke Bourbon is said to be a recreation of the preferred tasting profile of John Wayne himself from a "recently discovered" stash of his whiskey. Ethan Wayne reputedly discovered his father's aspirations in distilling his own whiskey and the stash contained detailed notes about his preferences and qualities. The bourbon is said to be a blend of ages 5 to 10 years aged in heavily charred barrels .

My brother-in-law brought this one over since I'm a big fan of The Duke. I had my reservations about what the quality would actually be, but I was pleasantly surprised. The aroma reminds me of the heavenly smell standing inside the rickhouse. The quality is good, but not great. But if you let it settle for a couple minutes on the rocks, it turns out fantastic. It doesn't have the same depth as Bookers, but the flavor profile is good. Light oak with a very subtle hint of caramel and a good finish.
