Though 22 years may not be considered ultra-aged in the scotch world, for a bourbon that’s practically ancient. Diageo’s Blade and Bow brand has been releasing this bourbon at various intervals over the past few years and this newest iteration matches the quality of past releases. The liquid nears the threshold of tannic, but syrupy flavors of toffee, tobacco and cherry balance it out. This bourbon was launched as an homage to the historic Stitzel-Weller distillery, which currently houses the Bulleit tourism center. Diageo is tight-lipped about where the bourbon is actually made, but reps for the company say the whiskey is aged at Stitzel-Weller.
