overall

Part of the re-launch of Daviess County Bourbons by Lux Row Distillers in February, 2020, the Cabernet Sauvignon Finished Bourbon is one of three unique limited edition variants with only 4,000 bottles of each released. In this case, the base blend of wheated and ryed mashbills and 6 month finishing really works well, softening and sweetening the bourbon and yielding a rich, velvety mouthfeel. A dessert whiskey in every sense, this is definitely one to pick up if you happen to come across it.
