Koval Bourbon Review

Koval Bourbon Koval is the first new distillery in the Chicago area since the 1800s and they are producing some very interesting whiskeys using various grains.

This is their bourbon, bottled at 94 proof (or 47% ABV) this is sweet, toffee'd and very tasty, I really need to give this a try in an old fashioned also as i really think the sweetness and higher ABV would work well in that.

Lots of sweet, sugary, toffee notes along with acetone (permanent marker) doughyness and sweet apples, a very drinkable bourbon.

Pick one of these up from specialists like Master of Malt.

Thanks to Koval for the official sample
