I enjoy seeing new Bottled in Bond whiskeys, as it allows me to easily confirm the authenticity of a particular whiskey without having to dig too deep. Founded in 2010, Rock Town Distillery is located in Little Rock, Arkansas and claims to be the first legal distillery of any kind in Arkansas since Prohibition. The mashbill is derived from grains that are grown within 125 miles of the distillery. The bourbon takes you on a ride that includes fruit, traditional caramel and vanilla, and even leather notes. While there is some developed intensity in the palate, the bourbon is still somewhat light overall in delivery. Now that I’ve become more familiar with this distillery, I am excited to try some of their other offerings.
