A. Smith Bowman Distillery
John J. Bowman Single Barrel 
Virginia Straight Bourbon Whiskey
100 Proof | 750 mL

This single barrel bourbon whiskey commemorates the early American pioneer Colonel John J. Bowman, who first explored Kentucky in 1775. He was the great, great uncle of Abram Bowman, founder of Virginia's A. Smith Bowman Distillery. Hand selected from the best and oldest barrels in the distillery, John J. Bowman Single Barrel bourbon is uniquely smooth for a 100 proof whiskey. Master Distiller Brian Prewitt employs a unique style of triple distillation that is typically used by Irish Distillers. This process strips away unwanted esters giving the whiskey a cleaner flavor profile. After the mashing and stripping run is complete at Buffalo Trace the last two finishing runs are done on a unique copper still. The result is a fragrant, toffee-marmalade nose that merges into leather, figs, and almonds. The palate contains vanilla, apples, and pears with a long and dry finish. If you are a Blanton's fan you will enjoy the rich depth of this bourbon. - Casey Teague, Whisk(e)y Specialist, H&F Bottle Shop
