Virginia Gentleman Bourbon 80@

A.Smith Bowman ran a family owned bourbon distillery with his sons starting in 1934 in Fairfax County, Virginia, now Reston, a suburb of Washington, DC. In 1988 the company moved its operations to Fredericksburg, Virginia, about 50 miles from Washington. In 2003 Sazerac Corporation bought A. Smith Bowman. Bowman currently bottles several small batch and single barrel bourbon whiskeys, along with the standard bourbons named Virginia Gentleman. This is a review of Virginia Gentleman, 80 proof, 4 year old. Virginia Gentleman is mashed and twice distilled at Buffalo Trace Distillery, using the Buffalo Trace low rye mashbill. The distillate is then tanker-trucked to Fredericksburg for completion. At Bowman, the whiskey is given a third distillation in a pot still, is put into barrels, and aged. There is also a 90 proof, 6 yr old version of Virginia Gentleman

The huge spice remains for 20-30 seconds and then just kind of disappears. All that is left then is some caramel and some hints of oak. For some reason the alcohol bite is much more noticeable for me in this 40% ABV whiskey than I would expect-- and it doesn't add anything to the total effect.
