Kentucky Owl Announces New Bourbon Called 'Confiscated'

Kentucky Owl has announced the release of Confiscated, the latest handcrafted batch of Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey from master blender Dixon Dedman.

This new release pays tribute to the barrels the government seized from Dixon's great-great grandfather, C.M. Dedman, just ahead of Prohibition. Dixon states: 
"An important part of Kentucky Owl's history is the seizure of all that inventory, which ultimately ended my family's run in the bourbon business for the time being. Confiscated is a reminder of the opportunities lost and a celebration of C.M. Dedman's legacy. I don't believe in making whiskies to hide flavor and character, and this one will stand up neat, on the rocks, or in a cocktail."
This new spirit has an MSRP of $124.99 for a 750ml bottle and comes in at At 96.4 proof (48.2% alcohol).Confiscated will be available in all 50 states. The tasting profile is:
Nose: Floral gardenia and honeysuckle, along with grape, red apple, orange cuties, wet banana bread and toasty sourdough bread crust
Taste: Graham crackers, toffee, muted sweet cinnamon spice, and fresh-squeezed orange juice balanced with white grapes
Finish: A hint of cayenne
Our Take

Kentucky Owl is a newer brand that we haven't had much exposure to. Additionally, their spirits are on the high end of the price spectrum. Their regular bourbon has a price of $299.99 + tax and their Rye checks in at $129.99 + tax in Ohio. We always love new options, especially when they are available in Ohio... however, at this price point, there are a lot of other bourbons on our list to try before we get to Kentucky Owl.

If you see this in the wild or give it a taste, drop a note in the comments with your thoughts.
