Sweetens Cove Kennessee Bourbon Blend
We're back with the latest release from Sweetens Cove. This one is pretty unique. Sweetens blended bourbon from both Kentucky and Tennessee. The blend was done by Marianne Eaves. After blending, the bourbon rested in steel tanks with toasted sugar maple wood. This is a nice nod to the Tennessee Whiskey roots while adding some depth and rounded wood notes.
Why would I add a sourced celebrity bourbon to Seelbach's? The answer is pretty simple. The bourbon is really good. They're transparent about their blending and sourcing. And, most importantly, well-aged bourbon is getting scarce! Sweetens Cove has already announced their next batch that includes 4-year-old barrels. I hate to say it, but I don't think we'll see many blends aged in the double-digits for a long time! Time to get it while we can.
