Lux Row Distillers launches Daviess County Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey Finished in Medium Toasted American Oak Barrels
Newest member of the limited-allocation, toasted-barrel finishes for the Daviess County Bourbon brand family drops in time for National Bourbon Heritage Month
ST. LOUIS (September 18, 2023) – Lux Row Distillers announced the newest member of the Daviess County Bourbon brand family: Daviess County Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey Finished in Medium Toasted American Oak Barrels. A limited allocation of 3,000 six-pack cases of Daviess County Medium Toasted will reach retail shelves across the country later this month at a suggested retail price of $49.99 per 750ml bottle.
Like its Lightly Toasted predecessor, Daviess County Medium Toasted features Daviess County Bourbon’s signature combination of ryed and wheated bourbon mashbills, which is aged four-plus years in charred-oak barrels and comes in at 96 proof (48% ABV). The medium toasted barrel finish gives this limited-edition release its own unique flavor profile, while giving consumers additional options within the Daviess County family.
“We continue to honor the rich history and tradition started in 1874 by the Daviess County Distilling Co. with this latest expression of our Daviess County Kentucky Straight Bourbon,” said Lux Row Distillers master distiller John Rempe. “Finishing our traditional Daviess County bourbon in medium toasted American oak barrels imparts aromas of roasted nuts, cocoa and hints of oak on the nose, while delivering flavors of caramel with notes of honey, roasted coffee and strong coconut on the palate. This unique flavor profile gives fans of the Daviess County Bourbon brand family more options to choose from and enjoy.”
Daviess County Medium Toasted is the latest in a series of toasted-barrel finishes for the Daviess County brand family, which also includes perennial variants Daviess County Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, Daviess County Cabernet Sauvignon Finish and Daviess County French Oak Finish.
