By definition, bourbon must be made with more than 51% corn. Many are made between 60 to 70%, but very few bourbons exist today with over 70% corn. The Southwell small batch bourbon is 84% corn, 8% rye, and 8% malted barley. A whiskey with this high corn content in the mash bill assures hints of extra sweetness in the finish. Southwell Straight Bourbon Whiskey was distilled in Tennessee, aged in Kentucky and bottled at 86 Proof in Bardstown, Kentucky.
This is a great classic bourbon nose full of corn and wonderful bourbon spice. The oak smells sweet with no hints of bitterness.The sweet corn is the most predominant flavor. Good spice and oak combination with the predominance of gentle sweetness. The corn slowly fades into a nicely toasted oak finish.
