A truly special whiskey is the culmination of a few key characteristics: Experience. Teamwork. Quality in every step. And last but not least, passion. At Old Carter Whiskey Co, it’s our promise to ensure you can taste our expertise and inspiration with every unique release, and in every sip.
Old Carter is the passion project of “flavor chaser” partners Mark Carter and Sherri Carter, whose beverage industry roots trace back to award-winning careers in the California wine business. After resurrecting the long-dormant bourbon brand Kentucky Owl in 2011, the two were irreversibly hooked on the art of whiskey making and blending. Kentucky Owl sold unexpectedly in 2017, but by then Sherri & Mark were so enamored with the vibrant spirit of Kentucky’s whiskey community, they made a commitment to carry on their love affair with whiskey by making a statement of their own, right in the Bluegrass. And Old Carter Whiskey Co was born.
Headquartered in Louisville, the Old Carter team produces Straight Ryes, Bourbons and American Whiskies in locations throughout Kentucky. Each bottle is personally crafted by Mark and Sherri, who create every blend and select every single barrel program release together.
For some, whiskey is a business. For us, it’s a labor of love.
Very traditional bourbon nose but with a ton of caramel, with undertones of vanilla, oak, dark fruit, and raisins.
On the palate, this bourbon has a very rich mouthfeel, with the caramel taking a back seat to rich vanilla, cherries, raisins, baking spice, clove, and perique pipe tobacco.
On the finish, the cherries and raisins become candied but with subtle clove and oak in the background that starts to crescendo and then decrescendo as it lingers.
