HARRODSBURG, Ky., Aug. 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Kentucky Owl®, "The Wise Man's Bourbon," today announced the release of its latest straight bourbon whiskey – Batch #7, which will be the first of Master Blender Dixon Dedman's releases to be made available outside of Kentucky. Just in time for Bourbon Heritage Month, the rollout will take place in September in the following states with the below distributor partners:

The Kentucky Owl Batch #7 release totals 2,535 bottles produced from 11 barrels aged 13+ years, and four barrels aged 8-9 years that have been double barreled at two years old. At 118 proof, 59% alcohol by volume, Batch #7 features a caramel, sweet char, crème brulee nose with a hint of cinnamon and red delicious apple. Vanilla and toffee join rich caramel to coat the front of the palate before the mid-palate tingles with spicy notes of pepper, cinnamon and a hint of ginger. The finish is lingering pepper spice with deep oak notes.
"As with all batches, I didn't start with a specific taste profile in mind. Instead, I followed the flavors and landed on a combination that is sweeter on the front and more complex and spicier on the finish than my previous batches," said Dixon Dedman. "I could not be more proud and humbled to introduce bourbon lovers in new cities to the Kentucky Owl story and to our Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey with Batch #7."
