Is Blade and Bow Bourbon rare?
The 22-year Blade and Bow is completely different. It's a rare find and it's very uncommon for bourbon to be this old. It's been blended smooth, and it's rather manageable to sip. It's not over-oaked like many aged bottles and it's a true testament to Diageo's blending ability.
Blade and Bow is produced at the original site of the iconic Stitzel-Weller Distillery in Louisville, Kentucky. The original distillery closed its doors in 1992, and Diageo reopened the facility in 2014
