Duke Founders Grand Cru 110 Proof boasts a unique heritage. This Kentucky bourbon marries classic bourbon notes with a finish in French oak wine barrels, previously used for high-end California Cabernet Sauvignon. Aged for 9 years, it's bottled at 110 proof for a more robust flavor experience.

Description

The first sip of Duke Founders Grand Cru 110 Proof is a revelation. The initial wave of flavor is a delightful interplay between tradition and innovation. The familiar richness of vanilla and caramel, hallmarks of classic bourbon, take center stage, coating the tongue with a luxurious sweetness. But then, the French oak influence unfolds, adding a layer of unexpected complexity. 

Hints of dried fruit, like raisin or fig, intermingle with the bourbon notes, offering a touch of sweetness and a subtle tartness. A whisper of honey might also emerge, adding a touch of floral elegance. The 110 proof elevates the experience, delivering a more robust and intense expression compared to lower-proof bourbons. Despite the higher alcohol content, the finish remains smooth and lingering. The warmth of the bourbon slowly fades, leaving behind a trail of fruit, spice, and a hint of oaky dryness from the wine cask influence.

Notes

Smooth and rich with predominant stone fruits and butterscotch with Island spices on the finish, including cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove. This bourbon is the benchmark of what wine-rested spirits should aspire to be.
