2XO has unveiled a gem in the world of bourbon aficionados with their latest creation, the Gem of Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. Claiming the title of the only double-barreled, single-barrel Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey on the market, this offering is poised to make waves in the spirits industry.
Selected from the finest single barrels within 2XO’s extensive stocks, the Gem of Kentucky was crafted with a high-rye bourbon mashbill, boasting 35% rye content. What sets it apart is the unique double-barreling process, where the whiskey spends additional time in new charred oak barrels, featuring both char 3 and char 4 toast levels.
According to 2XO’s master blender, Dedman, the inspiration behind Gem of Kentucky was to showcase the nuanced flavors that different barrels can impart to the liquid. Each barrel offers a distinct taste profile while maintaining the common threads of viscosity, mouthfeel, and richness. To match the exceptional quality inside, the bourbon is presented in a sleek and modern black bottle that stands out on the shelf. 2XO asserts that Dedman’s groundbreaking double-barreling technique enhances the whiskey’s viscosity on the palate, resulting in a truly unique bourbon experience.
This release follows a series of successful small-batch blends, including The Phoenix Blend, The Innkeeper’s Blend, and the Tribute Blend from 2XO’s The Icon Series. Earlier this year, 2XO introduced the American Oak, their first core release within the Oak Series, aimed at everyday enjoyment.
With distinctive tasting notes that vary from dessert-driven aromas like chocolate and cinnamon to the savory notes of red fruit and spice, each double-barreled single barrel of the Gem of Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey promises a one-of-a-kind sipping experience.
Priced at $230, this bourbon is a testament to 2XO’s commitment to crafting exceptional spirits that cater to the discerning palate of whiskey connoisseurs. Don’t miss your chance to savor the gem that is 2XO Gem of Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey.
