Chicken Cock Bourbon

$69.99

One of the oldest bourbon brands in the U.S., Chicken Cock was established in 1856 in Paris, Bourbon County, Kentucky. Seven decades later it was a staple of Prohibition-era speakeasies, including the world-famous Cotton Club. Known as, “The Famous Old Brand,” Chicken Cock died off after WWII but has now returned to its rightful place in the pantheon of great American heritage whiskeys.

Tasting Notes:

Color: rich, elegant mahogany hue

Nose: Nice balance of oak tones with sweet notes of dried fruit, caramel and vanilla

Taste: Soft oak tannin up front, which dissipates into delightful toasted oak lactones. At 90 proof, there is a slight bourbon heat that lets you know this is a real deal, full-bodied bourbon. On the tongue, it evolves with a creamy, almost buttery mouthfeel with sweet butterscotch notes followed by a wonderful vanilla wafer finish.
