Garrison Brothers occasionally releases one of America's most highly sought-after bourbon whiskies, known as Cowboy Bourbon®. This exceptional bourbon has earned numerous Platinum and Gold awards at prestigious spirits competitions, including the 2023 SIP Awards, the 2023 ASCOT Awards, and the 2023 TAG Global Spirits Awards, among others. In contrast to our Small Batch offering, Cowboy Bourbon is crafted from barrels personally chosen by Dan and Donnis, which are carefully aged for additional years before being bottled at cask strength, uncut and unfiltered. It represents the epitome of liquid ambrosia.
Crafting a bourbon nectar sweet enough to withstand such high proof requires a truly exceptional barrel. Typically, high-proof bourbons can overwhelm the palate with their potency, but this isn't the case with Cowboy Bourbon. Here, the sweetness of the bourbon actually outshines its proof, and we owe this exceptional flavor profile to the relentless Texas heat.
However, as delightful as this may sound, it's crucial to exercise caution when indulging in barrel-proof bourbon. This robust spirit is not for everyone and should always be savored in moderation. Remarkably, despite its potency, the finish remains remarkably smooth, with a peppery kick and a gentle, comforting warmth. This unexpected smoothness shouldn't come as a surprise, though, given that it was forged in the scorching heat of Texas—making it the perfect choice for summertime sipping.
