Chicken Cock Whiskey Announces Namesake Anchor Expression

Grain & Barrel Spirits brand Chicken Cock has announced the creation of their signature Chicken Cock Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. This new spirit is distilled, aged, and bottled in Kentucky and produced at Bardstown Bourbon Company.

This new spirit is bottled in a replica of the Prohibition-era Chicken Cock bottle. It comes with a 90 proof (45% alcohol) and has an MSRP of $59.99 for a 750ml bottle.

The tasting notes are:

Nose: Balances oak tones with sweet notes of dried fruit, caramel, and vanilla
Taste: Soft tannins. A creamy, almost buttery mouthfeel is complemented by butterscotch notes and toasted oak,
Finish: Vanilla

Our Take

I reached out to Chicken Cock to see if this would be available in Ohio and to get more information around age statement and mash bill. As of publishing, I haven't heard back. Without that information, it's hard to recommend picking this up unless you are looking to try something different. In my opinion, there are plenty of bourbons that I haven't tried that I would put before this without knowing anything about the bourbon.
