Knob Creek Smoked Maple

Made with original Kentucky Straight Bourbon, the bourbon comes first in this full-bodied drink followed by the natural flavors of maple, caramel and vanilla. Introduced in 2013, this 90 proof spirit is said to be aged for a 9 full years and might be interesting to use in classic cocktails.

Pow-Wow Botanical Rye Whiskey

Pow-Wow Botanical Rye is unique for its herbal flavoring and the Georgetown Trading Company, the owner of the brand, says the recipe is a special combination of early European distilling practices and New World herbal recipes. A few sips will reveal an herbal, spicy rye that features orange peel, saffron, and a variety of other botanical flavors. This may be worth an experimental cocktail or two.

Red Stag Black Cherry

Brought to you courtesy of Jim Beam, this spirit maintains its traditional bourbon oak flavor infused with black cherry as well as notes of vanilla and caramel. Jim Beam suggests mixing this tasty bourbon with cola or lemonade, whipping up a margarita, or trying a Red Stag Half & Half.

William Wolf Pecan Bourbon Whiskey

This bourbon is unusual for both its taste and the fact that it is made with a blend of US imported bourbon whiskey and an infusion of pecan distillate from Holland. Suggested cocktails include the William Wolf Pecan Side Car, William Wolf Sour, and William Wolf Banana Mint Julep.

Sons of Liberty Hop Flavored Whiskey

This Hop Flavored Whiskey has a floral aroma and a light oak and caramel taste with notes of grapefruit and lemon. According to Sons of Liberty;

“This whiskey started its life as an IPA. After retaining the IPA flavors through distillation we aged the whiskey in American oak barrels. Once the aging process was complete, we finished the whiskey by dry hopping with Citra and Sorachi Ace hops for bright and complementary floral tones.”

Their recommended cocktails are a Hop Whiskey Tonic and a Hopped Negroni.
