That said, to really stake your claim on this new bourbon frontier it’s important to do your research, and make sure you’re finding a taste profile worthy of any pour — neat or cocktail.
Americans have coveted barrel-aged bourbon for centuries. While recent years have seen an explosion in aged bourbon offerings, distillers have had hundreds of years to experiment, leading to some of today’s award-winning liquids offering unmatched texture, personality, and dynamism to the liquid.
The rising trend of aged bourbon comes with a lot of experimentation but when the grain-to-glass journey is perfected, it can result in some of the best-quality liquid that can be simply enjoyed neat or used to upgrade any cocktail. Take Bulleit Bourbon 10-Year-Old as an example.
