    Bowman Port Finished

    It looks like Angel's Envy has some competition. Bowman is releasing another port finished bourbon, this one will be aged 12 years. It is nice to see Bowman say when it was distilled and bottled, unlike the competition. It is also nice to know who actually made the stuff. The article made it sound like Bowman is looking to expand these endeavors, which is kind of cool (the gingerbread beer finished sounded intriguing).

    This is good news indeed. I'll definitely be interested as I missed out on the last one. Never tried AE but this finish has always been intriguing to me.

    The bourbon is NOT port finished it is finished in ex-sweet wine barrels.
    Port can only be made in Portugal, just as Bourbon can only be made in the USA.

    I had the gingerbread bourbon at Whiskyfest and it didn't do much for me. I toured their 'distillery' this summer and I do like their bourbon so it's great to see them experimenting and releasing these annual releases.

    But, I suppose, just like the Chinese can label a whiskey however they like, we can label sweet wine in kind.

    Still, your point stands.

    Bowman Sweet Wine gotta ring to it.

    They should finish it in Thunderbird barrels or something.

    I did not see that other thread. Can a mod merge this one into the other?

    Chinese disregard for trademarks aside, I think its bad form for American distillers to misuse other countries' product names and expect them to reciprocate in respecting Bourbon ...
