ISAAC BOWMAN “PIONEER SPIRIT” STRAIGHT BOURBON WHISKEY FINISHED IN PORT BARRELS
The whiskey is aged in new, charred American white oak barrels, with no age statement specifically available, though it reportedly falls in the 4.5-5.5 year range. The port barrels used for finishing come from Virginia and Portugal, made using American and French Limousin oak, and the whiskey ages in these from 3-6 months before blending to create the bourbon to be bottled. It’s bottled at 92 proof.
“A. Smith Bowman Distillery is excited to announce it will be launching Isaac Bowman Straight Bourbon Whiskey Finished in Port Barrels, as part of the Distillery’s core line of spirits. This bourbon will be made using the same process as the 2016 World’s Best Bourbon.” A. Smith Bowman Distillery
