Chicken Cock Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey (750ml)

Kentucky, UNITED STATES
$170. 00 Bottle
$2040.00 Dozen
ABV: 40%

Originally established in 1856 in Paris, Kentucky, Chicken Cock is one of the oldest brands in Bourbon history. The original whiskey rose in popularity during the 19th century and was infamously a staple of Prohibition-era speakeasies, where it would be smuggled inside in nondescript tin cans. The label disappeared from the market in the 1950s after the original distillery burned down, but was resurrected in 2013 as a "sourced whiskey".

Other reviews... Banana peel, pencil shavings, florist’s shop, and rose garden lined with herb beds on the nose. Oak takes the lead on the palate, but is tempered by lemon and orange zest, sweet black licorice, chocolate, peanuts, and popcorn. Crushed peanuts, milk chocolate, and pencil shavings persist on the finish, although it’s fairly short.
