Kings County is among the very first craft distillers to release this class of Whiskey, a style that is considered by some to be the highest class of American Whiskey. Bottled-in-Bond is a designation that refers to American Whiskies (and some Brandies) that are distilled, aged and bottled entirely at one distillery, from barrels filled in one season, by one distiller. Furthermore, the Whiskey must be 4-years-old and bottled at precisely 100 proof. In the old days, a bottled-in-bond designation was a way to protect the consumer from brands that were merely bottling up Whiskey from other distilleries and blending or adulterating that Whiskey. In an era when it's almost impossible to know where a Bourbon was actually produced, bottled-in-bond shows the advantages that a quality craft distiller, like Kings County, enjoys by making all their Whiskey in-house from grain to bottle. It's a layered, deeply flavoured Bourbon whose well-oiled palate fuses a cornucopia of refined fruitiness alongside silky spice, molten, golden demerara richness and a pure, clean, mouth-watering freshness.
"ye-haar!!! A Brooklyn bourbon with all the hallmarks of something way out west. Massive liquorice, golden syrup and molasses. Yet for all its damn tootin' bourbony might, the corn oils render this nose real hospitable; huge delivery, as might have been predicted. The sugars are supercharged, thick and generous. But the tannins counter with muscular depth. It's a corny, mocha and butterscotch finale; easy to mistake as fine old Kentucky bourbon; there's no higher praise than that!!"
