Kings County Distillery / Peated Bourbon Whiskey / 375mL
Our Peated Bourbon is a bourbon whiskey that conforms to the American requirements, but is made with malted barley that has been exposed to peat smoke, a more common practice in some Scotch whiskies. So it's a scotch-like bourbon, flavorful and robust from having aged in a new barrel, with an added light smoky finish, reminiscent of a single malt. As far as we know, this is the world's only peated bourbon and will appeal to the adventurous whiskey traveller who has tried everything--except this.
