American Whiskey - Bourbon

Watkins Select Kentuck Straight Bourbon Whiskey

Bottle/Rating Data

Proof66 Notes

Watkins Select bourbon appeared in the 2012 and then again in the 2013 and 2015 San Francisco World Spirits Competition. According to the filing with the federal Tax and Trade Bureau, it is produced by the LeVecke Corporation in California whom we have noted here as the producer. The label suggests "Kentucky Straight" bourbon, which means it at least aged in Kentucky for 2 years before being blended and bottled (we presume in California).

I'm seeing a pattern of subpar boring products from the Total Wine and Spirits house brands. This tastes like Elijah Craig, but with none of the maturity and smoothness that comes with Elijah's 12 years. For this price you'd be far better off with Benchmark or Evan 1783.

Not bad for a $12.99, 3 year old bourbon. It has a little roughness, but there is a pleasant vanilla/caramel quality that is shining through. I think with a little more age (6-7 years), and a little less water (90 proof, instead of 80), that this bourbon would be quite tasty. As it is though I think it's worth the price paid.

I just bought a bottle at Total Wine, I believe this is a house brand for Total Wine. I paid $13 for 750ml which makes me wonder if it is the same as the bottle described above. The label looks the same but the bottle shape is a little different. I was hoping for better taste given the score on this website. The taste was dry and lifeless, a mixer bourbon for sure. Searching the web does not explain the difference in bottle design, perhaps the picture above is from a previous generation. Anybody able to clarify?
