Dusty Thursday: Kentucky Vintage 1974
Kentucky Bourbon Distillers. This bottle, however, is a rare Japanese export of the same name. The label states 1974 as the vintage year and it was bottled in 2000 exclusively for the Japanese market. Based on the name and what I've heard about it, I assume it was also a KBD product, but I don't know for certain.
Kentucky Vintage 1974, bottled 2000, 25 years old, 47% abv
The nose has mango, tropical fruit and a bit of shampoo. The palate is very sweet, like fruit punch, and the finish is bitter. Water doesn't help.
Yuck. This stuff is terrible.
