Willett Distillery Pure Kentucky Bourbon|
We understand, the love and craziness surrounding Willett Family Estate (WFE) bottles. They're sourced products were fantastic. As Willett distilled WFE bottles hit the 6-8 year range they've been tasty. Most people don't realize all Willett Flagship products are distilled by Willett. Distilled and well aged. Today, we highlight Pure Kentucky. This is my favorite from the Willett flagship line up!
Pure Kentucky is a blend of bourbon around 6-years old. They don't disclose the actual age but I was able to confirm that the average age is 6-years. That means it's a blend of barrels in the 5-7 year range. Willett uses both their OG (72/13/15 Corn/Rye/Malted Barley) and high-rye bourbon (52/38/10 Corn/Rye/Malted Barley) mash bills. This blend of age and mash creates an incredible mix of brown sugar, tobacco and leather. It has an oily mouth feel with a long rich finish. The 107 proof is plenty of heat to balance out the sweeter notes on the nose. At $45, this is proof that incredible craft whiskey can be available and affordable.
