Lux Row Distillers launched Daviess County Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey Finished in Lightly Toasted American Oak Barrels. This new, limited-edition bourbon is the first in a series of annually offered toasted-barrel finishes for the Daviess County Bourbon brand family.
Daviess County Lightly Toasted features its namesake brand family’s signature combination of ryed and wheated bourbon mashbills, which is aged four-plus years in new American charred oak barrels, then finished in a lightly toasted oak barrel. The finished product comes in at 96 proof (48% ABV) which is consistent with all other Daviess County Bourbons. The lightly toasted barrel finish gives this limited-edition release its unique flavor profile while giving consumers additional options within the Daviess County family.
“I’m proud to honor the rich history and tradition started in 1874 by the Daviess County Distilling Co. with this latest expression of our Daviess County Kentucky Straight Bourbon,” said Lux Row Distillers master distiller John Rempe. “Finishing our traditional Daviess County bourbon in lightly toasted American oak barrels imparts aromas of caramel, vanilla, and hints of oak on the nose while delivering flavors of sweet caramel with notes of vanilla and coconut on the palate. This unique flavor profile is certain to become a fast favorite among fans of the brand”
Daviess County Lightly Toasted is the first in a series of annually offered toasted-barrel finishes for the Daviess County brand family, including perennial variants Daviess County Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, Daviess County Cabernet Sauvignon Finish, and Daviess County French Oak Finish.
A limited allocation of 3,000 six-pack cases of Daviess County Lightly Toasted will reach retail shelves across the country during the month of August 2022 at a suggested retail price of $49.99 per bottle. Search for Daviess County Bourbons here.
