Distiller's Notes: "In the pursuit of finding the perfect balance and expression, Duke Grand Cru Kentucky Reserve Bourbon exquisitely marries the classic and bold flavors of aged Kentucky bourbon with the finest French Oak Grand Cru wine barrels in the World. Meticulously crafted, a rare 9 yr. old selection of our Kentucky Straight bourbon then delicately rests in these barrels until a unique and graceful balance is found. Not all barrels are created equal, so our master blender has sought out the rarest and finest French Oak barrels to honor and enhance the great flavors of our aged bourbon. These barrels have gracefully aged some of the most stunning 98-100 point scoring single vineyard California Cult Cabernets. Barrels represent a very key element to the evolution of flavor. The age, tight grains found in the French Oak, originating from centuries old forests, and, the perfect level of toasting ultimately provides a canvas rarely explored."

9 YEAR OLD Kentucky Straight Bourbon finished in single-use French oak barrels from some of America's most sought-after wines.

The Tasting Panel Magazine: 98 Points “This 110-proof whiskey—crafted from nine-year-old bourbon and finished in French oak wine barrels—comes from John Wayne’s 1962 recipe. Nutmeg and buttered pecans make for a warm and deeply hedonistic perfume; on the palate, cedar is accented by black cherries dipped in milk chocolate. The warmth of the liquid makes the tongue glow, leaving behind flavors of orange peel and nougat. Sensational.”
