DUKE KENTUCKY STRAIGHT BOURBON WHISKEY
Crafted by Masters, and inspired by rare bottles unearthed and preserved for over 50 years from the collection of John Wayne. Meticulously blended to replicate and honor the tasting notes and profile preferred by John Wayne using his original recipe from 1962 and his private collection to guide flavor and aromatics. A proprietorial mash bill of predominately American bent corn with additions of rye with sixth row barley.
Distilled and aged in Kentucky the old fashioned way, in small batches and aged in heavily charred new and hand built American Oak barrels. A special blend at 88 proof, aged a minimum of 5 years in barrels hand selected for perfection.
DUKE GRAND CRU BOURBON 9YR
Duke Grand Cru Kentucky Reserve Bourbon exquisitely marries the classic and bold flavors of our Kentucky Straight bourbon with the finest French Oak Grand Cru wine barrels in the World. A rare 9 yr. old selection of our Kentucky Straight bourbon is then aged in the same barrels that housed stunning 98-100 point single vineyard California Cult Cabernets. The French Oak, originating from centuries old forests, and, the perfect level of toasting ultimately provides a profound and unique Expression of the spirit.
DUKE DOUBLE BARREL RYE
The Founder’s Reserve Rye is aged in American Oak then into French Oak barrels that first contained 98-100 Cult Napa Cabernets and our Reserve Kentucky Straight Bourbon. The Rye is then barrel conditioned for a second time (Double-Barrel) in the once used barrels that contained our 5-year Kentucky straight. The result is a velvety form of liquid sorcery. Tasting Notes: Cherry, silky marzipan, and vanilla bean give way to sultry smoke and spice.
