Blade and Bow 22-Year-Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey Returns with a Limited Re-Release

Diageo has announced the re-release of the 22-year old version of Blade and Bow. This new release is to celebrate the opening of the Stitzel-Weller Distillery 84 years ago.

This new release will be available in limited quantities across 12 states (California, Texas, Georgia, Colorado, New York, South Carolina, Illinois, Kentucky, Washington, D.C., Tennessee, North Carolina and Virginia), but unfortunately, Ohio will not be one of them.

North American Whiskey Educator Doug Kragel says:
"Beginning with a pronounced nose reminiscent of toasted oak layered with vanilla bean, figs and a light touch of dark caramel, this limited-release bourbon's taste is accented with notes of torched sugar and apples baked in honey and spices. It's the kind of rare whiskey that makes you want to savor every note slowly, because at some point in the future, supply will run out."
The bourbon comes in at At 92 proof and no MSRP was provided.

Our Take

Blade and Bow makes 2 varieties, Blade and Bow Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey and Blade and Bow 22-Year-Old Limited Release Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey... we've never seen either... given that both Blade and Bow varieties are not available in Ohio and no MSRP was given, we're not going to be on a big hunt to try to find this one. Hopefully, Blade and Bow will be more readily available in the future.
