The new Kentucky Owl Bourbon Batch No. 10, according to those behind it, is said to be a blend of their “oldest, oakiest and most precious barrels combined with more youthful, fruity and spice-driven selections.” It is bottled at a hearty 120.2 proof and has official tasting notes that speak of “flavors of sweet caramel, toffee and vanilla, followed by subtle floral fruity notes before finishing with a kick of spice on the back of the palate.”

Kentucky Owl was founded in 1879 by a local pharmacist, Charles Mortimer Dedman. He and his new bride received a large parcel of land on the banks of the Kentucky River as a wedding gift from his adopted father, a town judge. After running it by his wife, he decided to build the C.M. Dedman Distillery. For decades, it produced "The Wise Man's Bourbon" under Distilled Spirits Plant Designation "No. 16," one of Kentucky's original distilleries and part of a booming industry.
