    Kentucky Owl Straigh Rye Batch #3 is a 114 proof Rye with its major component of the flavor profile being the 10 year old stock. The 10 year old is lower in proof, has a much richer, thicker, syrupy mouthfeel, and really brings the blend forward on the palate.

    Whiskey Advocate Summer 2018
    HIGHEST-RATED WHISKEY, 95 POINTS The nose on this KO batch 1 rye has elements of sweet pine, honey, nougat, vanilla, cloves and lavender. Oaky undertones, subtle cedar saw dust or fresh split cedar. Rich in consistency and not forwardly spicy on the nose. It immediately coats the entire palate and nutmeg and cinnamon give way to pepper spice with vanilla on the front and anise across the middle. Subtle cinnamon spice clings to the finish.
