David Nicholson 1843 Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is a 'wheated' bourbon that provides an exceptionally smooth flavor and finish. Winner of the Double Gold at San Francisco World Spirits competition, David Nicholson 1843's award-winning taste is appreciated from coast to coast. On the nose, rich scents of honey and butter are followed by subtle hints of vanilla and oak. On the palate, it is exceptionally smooth to start, followed by woody, smoky overtones, with a long, warm finish with a touch of spice. This bourbon, bottled at 100 proof, is extra aged for a more robust flavor and a full-bodied, long finish. In 1843 a grocer by the name of David Nicholson started distilling his original bourbon recipe in the private back room of his St. Louis general store on North 6th Street. Unbeknownst to its forefather, a legacy was born. Half a century, his recipe had been passed down for generations. Still possessing the outstanding character for which it earned its first popularity in 1843, the David Nicholson legacy lives on unchanged, unfettered, and unmatched.
