The new distillery will become the most southern stop on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail, joining the family of iconic distilleries that have made their home there and ensuring the Horse Soldier legacy lives on for decades to come.
Horse Soldier Straight Bourbon (43.5% ABV): Made with corn, rye, and malted barley and aged a minimum of 3 years. GSN’s Remarks: A solid bourbon that has a softness and mellow edge. The sweetness pops out at the get go, but eventually the oak char kicks in tempering the overall character. A good choice for whiskey cocktails. GSN Rating: B+
Horse Soldier Small Batch Bourbon (47.5% ABV): Made from small batches of blended mature whiskey, aged for a minimum of 6 years in new American white oak barrels. GSN’s Remarks: The slightly higher proof makes itself known, not in fire, but in flavor. Everything is compact and ready to burst out of the bottle. Smooth enough to sip on its own, it also will make a remarkable Mint Julep as it will handily stand up to the crushed ice. Really nice. GSN Rating: A
