Town Branch Bourbon has won another gold medal – this time from the New York-based FiftyBest.com’s “Best Bourbon” awards for 2014. During the groups’ recent Bourbon Whiskey Tasting, 27 bourbons were evaluated using a blind-tasting system and rated on a 5-point scoring system. After tallying the scores, medals were awarded based on judges’ impressions.
The judges described Town Branch as having a nose of honey, blossom, banana, cinnamon, and oak. The palate was described as tasting of dried fruit, nectar, butter, toffee, and spice. The finish, they noted, tasted of citrus, sweet oak and was fresh and lingered. TheFiftyBest.com is an online guide to fine living, featuring rated listings from unbiased surveys and proprietary tastings judged by food, wine/spirits journalists, spirits professionals and connoisseurs.
It’s exciting to see expert judges enjoying our Kentucky bourbon! Let’s hope they’ve headed south from New York before and visited us and others on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail®and gotten the full experience of our great distilleries here in the Commonwealth.
This year, Town Branch Bourbon® also captured a gold medal from the 2013 San Francisco World Spirits Competition and the Spirits International Prestige Awards, as well as silver medals from the 2013 Denver International Spirits Competition and the Spirits of the Americas awards.
