Item Description
To celebrate the artful craft of blending exceptional, high quality whisky that Scotland is renowned for, Kentucky Owl has partnered with Maureen Robinson, one of Scotch whiskys most revered Master Blenders, to create this exceptional 3rd limited edition international collaboration of blended Bourbon, appropriately named Maighstir Edition.

Maighstir (pronounced may-stir) translates as Master in Gaelic and this is an authentic way of highlighting the collaboration between these 2 great whiskey masters. It is a collaboration that encompasses not just the art of blending itself but also the different flavors and tasteprofiles that each country has become famous for in the making of its whiskeys.

Kentucky Owls Maighstir Edition is an artfully blended limited 3rd edition aged bourbon that provides whiskey lovers an insight into the flavor profiles sought after by a Scotch Whisky Master Blender. It is a special release that brings the best of Scotch whisky blending skills to Kentucky Owls bourbon range.

LIQUID:
A blend made up of 4yr old, 5yr old, 8yr old and 9yr old Kentucky Straight Bourbons with mash bills containing Corn, Wheat, and Malted Barley. Each whiskey brings its own unique flavor characteristics, all carefully selected to create a robust, well balanced and Scotch whisky inspired Bourbon experience.

NOSE:
A sweet sense of small grains particularly the malted barely, with a hint of sweet caramel. The balance of the small grains (wheat and barely) with the hint of sweet caramel/vanilla, gives the immediate sensation and question in your mind; is this a great bourbon, or is this a great Scotch? Honestly, smelling it made me feel like I was back in a Scotch Whisky warehouse

TASTE:
Initially there is sense of warm spicy sweetness from the rye that you might expect from a great bourbon, but then the combination and soft tones from the wheat and barley give a pleasant calming warmness to the tongue. As it melts in the mouth the essence of orange and grapefruit linger behind the soft velvety feel in the mouth. In the throat, the soft caramel/vanilla reappears and trails away with a long soft pleasant finish
About Kentucky Owl
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.
