This is part of the re-launch of Daviess County Bourbons by Lux Row Distillers in February, 2020. When I read that this bourbon was finished in French Oak cask for six months, I expected a heavy double barrel profile. Instead the opposite is true. It’s surprisingly delicate and its oak notes, which are plentiful, somehow aren't overpowering. In fact they are nicely layered and the French Oak finish puts a fun flavor spin on them. This is a very unique tasting finished bourbon that drinks more like a Scotch.

The sample used for this review was provided to us at no cost courtesy its respective company. We thank them for allowing us to review it with no strings attached.
