William Grant & Sons, the independent Scottish distillers behind the likes of The Balvenie, Hendrick's Gin and Sailor Jerry, is coming out with a brand new product that's about to take the spirits world by storm. Fistful of Bourbon is a blend of five straight American bourbons – hence "fistful" – aged at least two years and bottled at 45% ABV (90 proof) with playful packaging that brings a breath of fresh air to the staid bourbon market.
Due to its composition and assemblage by William Grant & Sons Master Blender Brian Kinsman, the whiskey has five distinct flavors: balanced and sweet; green, leafy floral notes; soft spices and hints of nutmeg; buttery toffee; cinnamon and licorice. As William Grant & Sons Whisky Blender Kelsey McKechnie explains, “There’s an art and science to blending — and Fistful is a balance of both." Texas is getting the first batch with the rest of the country following soon.
