Product description

In Kentucky, the only thing more important than bourbon is family. Honoring the long branches of their family trees, Matthew McConaughey and Master Distiller Eddie Russell joined forces to create a whiskey that integrates their Texas and Kentucky roots. The result is an exceptional 8-year-old Bourbon refined with Texas mesquite for subtle hints of smoke, sweetness and spice.

    I don’t understand the positive reviews on this one. There are much better bourbons to be had at this price point. This is much too cloyingly sweet for me to enjoy.

    Whether sipping it neat or in a Manhattan, this is a great bourbon.

    THIS rocks! I've been a bourbon man for decades, and, honestly and seriously, this is far and away the best I've had. Extremely smooth, great taste. I drink it neat even rather than over rocks. Try it... you won't regretmit!

    I hate to write how much I love this, want to keep it a secret. The hint of mesquite is delicious. If you use any thing except a splash of water you will miss its uniqueness.

    Very smooth. Great for sipping. My on the rocks go-to (in particular when I don’t want to break the bank).

FAQs

Bourbon is a corn-based, aged spirit that, while legally can be produced anywhere in the U.S., is Kentucky’s signature liquor; in fact, Kentucky distilleries make 95% of the world’s bourbon and the Bluegrass State hosts over a million visitors annually for bourbon tasting tourism.
Because of the liquor’s aging process variation, bourbon’s colors range from light amber to dark caramel and each bottle must contain at least 40% ABV. Bourbon can only be called bourbon if it’s aged in an oak barrel; barrels must be new and are pre-charred to help the liquid extract as much flavor as possible from the wood.
Much like how a square is a rectangle, but a rectangle is not a square, bourbon is a whiskey — but because of the stricter standards set for bourbon distillers, most whiskies are not considered bourbons.
While both whiskey and bourbon are made from the same base ingredients (a predominantly corn mash, yeast and water), a spirit can only be called bourbon if it’s crafted in the United States, surpasses a minimum 40% ABV and is aged in new, charred, white oak barrels. Bourbons are generally on the younger side of the whiskey family (compared to older whiskies like scotch) and thus deliver a sweeter profile.
Bourbon’s ingredient list is short and sweet (literally): corn, other grains, water and yeast. Barley, wheat and rye grains are often featured in the mash composition alongside the liquor’s signature corn base, but even so, the FDA considers straight bourbon as a gluten-free product that is safe for those with Celiac Disease or for individuals who suffer from other forms of gluten intolerance.
Raise a glass to science: While rye, barley and wheat all contain the gluten protein, the actual gluten is removed during the bourbon’s distillation process, in which the gluten molecules are separated from the actual distillate used to make the final product.
