Temperance Trader Straight Bourbon Whiskey is from Bull Run Distillery in Portland, Oregon, and is a small batch, high rye bourbon [65% corn, 25% rye, 10% malt] with water from the nearby Bull Run Watershed. Aged anywhere from four to six years in barrels, the 45% alcohol content [90 proof] bourbon is said to have vanilla and honey notes with a hint of spice and upon our tasting, WC cannot dispute that.

To be more eloquent about it, we would say that Temperance Trader Straight Bourbon Whiskey can be described in terms relevant to the upcoming Kentucky Derby – it is smooth out of the gate and sassy down the stretch. It is reminiscent of a whiskey you could/should/would like to have on a cool autumn day paired with a fine Cuban cigar of your choosing.

WC identifies Temperance Trader Straight Bourbon Whiskey as not the smoothest bourbon on the block, but one which you will likely find pleasing in virtually any social setting such as, say, neighborhood party, summer BBQ or even the occasional office party. It is relatively inexpensive at $35 per bottle and at that price, it makes it quite a bargain for your buck – WC gives Temperance Trader Straight Bourbon Whiskey a score of 89 out of 100.

Temperance Trader Straight Bourbon Whiskey may currently be found in seven U.S. states – California, Illinois, Massachusetts, Maryland, New York, Oregon and Washington.
