As bourbon drinkers, we’re continually told how much the barrel has on the influence of the end product. And nowhere is this more on display than when a company employs a unique type of wood for their barrels. With Independent Stave Company headquartered in Missouri, you might not expect much difference with this release’s finished barrels, but it is actually quite shocking how much of an effect Missouri white oak has on this bourbon.

One of the most noticeable undercurrents of this Daviess County bourbon is its softness. It’s strikingly delicate, from its fresh crisp nose and gentle sweet palate, to its delicate finish. It’s not overly complex by any means, but its value lies in its evenness and novel tone. With bombastic flavor profiles in vogue, it is refreshing to come across something that treads its own path. However, with this subtleness comes the challenge to wow you, and this bourbon probably won’t do that - at least to a major degree. Some will be bored by it, but others who feel like they have experienced it all, will likely find something unique to indulge in here.
