Bomberger’s Declaration Small Batch Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey

Bomberger’s Declaration Small Batch Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey


Bomberger’s Declaration Distillery Bourbon pays homage to American Whiskey history, offering a remarkable small batch 108 proof Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey characterized by its boldness, layered complexity, and unique aging in Chinquapin oak for a rich and distinctive flavor profile.


Bomberger’s Declaration Distillery Bourbon honors the legacy of the former distillery known as Bomberger’s in the 1800’s and later as Michter’s in the 20th Century. This 2022 release continues the Bomberger’s tradition of offering bold and beautiful 108 proof Kentucky Straight Bourbon with a rich and layered complexity due to a portion of the bourbon being aged in Chinquapin oak. The Chinquapin oak utilized for aging was naturally air-dried and seasoned for three years before being toasted and charred to exacting specifications.

The nose opens with complex rich notes of toffee bordering on fudge, deep cherry and stewed red fruits, a touch of candied ginger, and dark chocolate. As you nose deeper baking spices, barrel char, herbaceous notes, and toffee notes combine to give the impression of a freshly-baked toffee and spice cookie whilst an undercurrent of honeyed floral red fruit remains consistent throughout.

The palate opens with notes of deep toffee, chocolate, and strawberries stewed in brown sugar, followed closely by an earthy kick of baking spices, tannic charred oak, herbaceous barrel notes, and peppery rye. As you keep chewing the toffee, fruit, and floral notes remain the focus and continue to develop with minty charred oak and a warming spice also coming through.

The finish opens with lingering heat, caramel, a mix of tart dark and red fruits, candied ginger, dark chocolate, and charred herbaceous oak. This fades into a long aftertaste of herbaceous charred oak, dried fruits, dark chocolate, and a touch of baking spices.
