Pure Kentucky Bourbon 2006 overview
As an FYI, I bought and use these Glencairn glasses for everything (they’re the best): Glencairn Crystal Whiskey Glass Set of 6, Set of 4, Set of 2, or just one. Full transparency, this is an affiliate link, so I may earn a commission if you buy this or something else from Amazon.
Pure Kentucky Bourbon 2006 smell
The scents smells so strange because of how wildly unique (and amazing) they are, yet it all feels oddly familiar like sherry / port-matured Scotch. Some bourbons are date and prune-forward, often wine-finished ones, but Pure Kentucky takes it to another level. It is so in your face.
I also can’t get over that awesome funk that’s everywhere. It’s not sour or rancid, it’s sort of like sherry and/or ripe fruit funk. On top of that, it’s dark, dense, and heavy without the overly roasty, oaky, or burnt scents. Every little drop is cram full of magical character. Henry McKenna 10 Year and Elijah Craig Barrel Proof are very roasty, spicy, and occasionally nutty, but Pure Kentucky isn’t that way. What a wild experience.

Pure Kentucky Bourbon 2006 Rating
I have far too much fun writing about whiskey and singlehandedly running The Whiskey Shelf to bring you independent, honest, and useful reviews, comparisons, and more. I’m proudly Asian American and can speak Cantonese, Mandarin, and some Japanese.There are no sponsors, no media companies, and no nonsense. Support The Whiskey Shelf by Buying Me A Shot.
Shattered glass really sucks, so if you’re on the move, this Glencairn-like stainless steel snifter glass should survive your travels. Full transparency, this is an Amazon affiliate link, so I may earn a commission if you buy this or something else from Amazon.
