Sam Houston Bourbon Whiskey has launched a second release of its 12-year-old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey.
The second release will be available in select U.S. Markets – Texas, Tennessee, Kentucky, Illinois, New York, Colorado, Maryland, Washington DC and Virginia. Bottled at 98 proof and priced at $99.99 per 750-ml., the new batches of Sam Houston were made under the eyes of Steve Nally, John Hargrove and the team at Bardstown Bourbon Company.
The bourbon was aged for a minimum of 12 years in new American White Oak barrels, charred at #4 level. The current release has been crafted in small batches, the company says, using only three barrels at a time. Each bottle is individually hand-labeled with specific aging notes and numbered.
In late 2018, the first release of Sam Houston 12-year-old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey was launched in two markets – Texas and Tennessee.
The brand is named after Sam Houston, who served as a congressman, the president of Republic of Texas and the governor of two states – Texas and Tennessee.
