Bottling InfoAuthentic brand, in existence for more than 110 years. Made from the finest ingredients, Kentucky Tavern is an important addition to any retailer's shelves.

<Barton Brands Website>

Bright amber hue. Fiery wood-accented aromas. A soft attack leads to a medium-bodied palate. Slightly hot, woody finish. Straightforward.

Review from JoeBourbon (BourbonEnthusiast Review ID 547, Created:20060723100445)
Purchased at:E-Bay
Purchased for:35.00
Info on this bottle:Old Kentucky Tavern, Fall 1949 - Fall 1955 Made by Glenmore
Proof Of this Bottle:100
Nose:Lovely soft nose. Estery fruit displayed. Very little alcohol presence. Very little wood components in the nose. You could keep your nose on the glass all day.
Taste:BIG fruit and lots of it. Peaches, Apricots, Cherries, etc. Almost no alcohol burn. These older bourbons are super and this is one of them. Great balance.
Finish:A fairly long finish of fruit, a little spice and a hint of wood. Fantastic.
Overall:I have become an ardent fan of older whiskies and this one justifies my sentiments. It is incredible. Oh, how I long for the older ways of making bourbon.
