King of Kentucky, 14 years, $249.99

Posted on

Winner of my American Whiskey of the Year last year, King of Kentucky returns at 14 years old.

Some 2,200 bottles will be released in Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, and Tennessee at $249.99. Coming from Lot: 06F27, Warehouse: K, Floor: 8, Rick: 46, the King is 131.3 Proof this year.

King of Kentucky was established in 1881 as a Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey.  Brown-Forman acquired the brand in 1936 from Selected Kentucky Distillers and, by 1940, converted it to a blended whiskey until it was discontinued in 1968.  In 2018, Brown-Forman revived the lapsed label paying homage to the brand’s past. 

King of Kentucky is an annual/on-going periodic release of a single barrel inventory featuring a barrel-strength, minimally-filtered proof presentation, with each release and every barrel being unique, the company said.

All bottles will be filled, bottled, wax-dipped, and numbered by hand with details including proof, age, warehouse location, lot number, serial number, and barrel number, all selected by Master Distiller Chris Morris.
