entucky Owl Confiscated Bourbon is a pricey bottle shrouded in mystery. But while the lack of information about its origins might dissuade some hardcore bourbon fans, it’s undeniably an excellent whiskey, almost perfectly balanced, with a sweetness anchored by enough dry oak and spice to please fans of both styles. Pros, This is a beautifully balanced bourbon—bold but not too bold, with a nice mix of sweet and dry flavors throughout the palate. Cons, For a sourced whiskey with no age statement, Confiscated is very pricey. The Confiscated name refers to whiskey from the original Kentucky Owl distillery, which was seized by the government in 1916, shortly before Prohibition became the law of the land. The confiscated whiskey was destroyed in a warehouse fire shortly after, and owner C.M. Dedman was never reimbursed for it, precipitating Kentucky Owl’s demise.
