Mary Dowling Tequila Barrel Finished Bourbon Whiskey


46.5% ABV, 750 ml High Rye | Toasted Barrel – 93 Proof

Mary Dowling was the most successful and influential woman distiller in the male-dominated world of pre-Prohibition bourbon, yet no one knows her name. During Prohibition, she was the ONLY owner to shift production to Mexico to escape the long arm of the Dry Laws. The Mary Dowling brand restores her name to its rightful place in American hearts, minds, and glasses.

This high rye Tequila Barrel-Finished bourbon is a testament to Mary Dowling's nature, expressing the flavors and aromas of the drink's remarkable journey. It's a story that begins with a high rye double malt Kentucky straight bourbon. After resting for a minimum of four years in newly toasted and charred Kelvin Cooperage American Oak casks, the beautiful amber liquid is transferred to Appalachian American Oak tequila barrels.

The barrels first held sacrificial sherry for a year, followed by Oloroso sherry with Solara system for four years, and then two years holding Vin Doux Naturel, before holding Reposado tequila in Mexico.

These casks ensure that the bourbon ultimately reveals aromas suffused with a genuinely distinct bourbon expression. The aroma of oak, subtle spices, herbal roots, citrus orange, and light floral notes stands out on the palate, with a subtle taste of agave, citrus lemon, grapefruit, smoke, tobacco, and nutmeg. The drink's complexity exudes a surprisingly balanced palate of tangy fruits and earthy, smoky tones, completed by a black-peppery, medium-length finish.
