Old Pogue Bourbon
716 West 2nd Street
Located just across the Ohio River from Aberdeen in Maysville, Kentucky. Maysville is known as the “birthplace of bourbon”. Pogue Bourbon has a history dating back to the years following the Civil War. In 1876, the original Pogue distillery, Kentucky registered distillery No. 3, was established in Maysville, Mason County, Kentucky, very near a site often said to be the location of Kentucky's first distillery. Over the years the business has shut down and reopened several times.
A recent review: A...small batch bourbon, this sensational effort is a fiery, full-bodied bourbon with a medium amber color as w...ell as lots of vanilla, smoke, marmalade, spice and caramelized citrus notes. Very aromatic, rich and heady, but not overly hot, this is a superb bourbon. Rated 95/100 Robert Parker of the Wine Advocate
