Tasting Notes

This classic brand is finally back in the hands of its namesake family. The wonderful and affordable high proof bourbon was originally produced by Wathen Medley at the Owensboro Distillery in the 1940s and '50s. The brand left family hands in the late '50s, but Sam Medley has worked tireless to win back the rights to his family's old brands. The resulting product is an incredibly well priced 100+ proof bourbon targeting the craft cocktail movement. What that means for you is another excellent $20ish Kentucky bourbon and more proof that American Whiskey remains one of the most affordable categories in our store.

    77% corn for great balance of sweetness and elegance, clove and butterscotch on the nose for rusticity. These guy source, but are extremely particular about what goes into their bottles. So much care is taken on these, the value to quality is extremely high. As far as the palate goes, it tastes just like it smells, classic, with a long and warm finish. Super versatile.

    A splendid entry level offering from the Medley/Wathens Family bottlers. This little high proofer is nipping at the heels of greats like BT, Four Roses, Wild Turkey 101 for best bang for your buck bourbon in the store. The Medley's have the incredible advantage of actually controlling the distillation of the products, which most bottlers aren't able to claim (despite their best efforts). The result is one of the most affordable and delicious whiskies in the store. Easy and corn driven with sweet butterscotch and subtle barrel spice. Beautiful texture and a fine easy finish for something that's totally balanced and put together at 102 proof. Great for cocktails as well.
