A. Smith Bowman Distillery Releases Latest Experimental Finish Bourbon
A. Smith Bowman Distillery has announced the latest release in its series of experimental whiskey, the Abraham Bowman Rum Finished Bourbon.
The Abraham Bowman bourbon is aged for nine years in American White Oak before finishing in rum casks for an additional six years.
The limited edition, 15-year-old release could be the oldest rum cask finished bourbon ever produced.
“Our Abraham Bowman series allows us the flexibility to experiment and discover unique new expressions, permitting us to gain new insights along the way,” said Master Distiller Brian Prewitt.
“The age on this rum-finished release is unparalleled and resulted in one of our favorite finishes to date. The aroma of vanilla, caramel, and candied nuts give way to leather and coconut, finally fading to the notes brought in from the long rum finish, aromas of molasses, brown sugar, and candied fruit. Sweet flavors of toffee and toasted sugar with vanilla. This bourbon has a viscous mouthfeel and pleasant aftertaste that lingers on the palate. The immense complexity of the spirit continues to offer new and enticing aromas and flavors with each subsequent taste.”
The Abraham Bowman Rum Finished Bourbon is part of a series of limited edition whiskies, named after Abraham Bowman, the commander of the 8th Virginia Regiment in the American Revolutionary War.
Abraham Bowman Rum Finished Bourbon is bottled at 100 proof and carries a suggested retail price of $69.99.
