92 Points - Malt Advocate Rowan's Creek Straight Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey is named for the distillery's limestone-filtered water source. This bourbon is distilled, aged, and bottled in small batches, and each bottle is hand-numbered with its batch number. At a full 100.1 proof, this is assertive stuff, yet it is still delightfully sippable. Slightly lighter than Noah's Mill, it displays caramel, dried fig, smoke, cedar, leather, white fruit, and dried flower notes on the nose and palate. Complex and intriguing, this is a special whiskey for any occasion.
