A true Kentucky bourbon, this limited release whiskey unmistakably captures your attention and rewards you from nose-to-finish. Aged 13 years in new, charred oak barrels, Buckner’s offers an understated potency with exceptional balance, commemorating the distillery’s inaugural bottling.
An inviting amber color is the conclusion of an intense 13-year relationship between our mash and its new American oak barrel. The warm, mahogany hue characterizes Buckner’s understated potency that has been deservedly earned as patience gives way to perfection.
A haunting combination of antique wood, wet soil and dry corn pulls forward from a honeyed vanilla palate. This introduction immediately suggests a rare complexity that can only be found in a true Kentucky bourbon with properly aged maturity.
Exotic spice and caramel notes are directly complemented by hints of buttery cream and cured tea leaves. Each sip provides an unforgettable experience that instantly returns you to the limestone hills of Kentucky only to demand further exploration.
An honest hero & not a moment too soon
Buckner’s Single-Barrel Bourbon is a tribute to the lasting legacy of Revolutionary War Hero Captain Philip Buckner. Following his years of service in the Virginia Militia, Buckner was awarded 7,000 acres along the Ohio River that would ultimately give rise the city of Augusta, Kentucky. The civic minded Buckner would go on to establish the first school, courthouse and jail, setting the roots of prosperity still visible in the community today.
