Blended by the distillery’s Master Blender Brian Kinsman and Whisk(e)y Blender Kelsey McKechnie, Fistful of Bourbon features five distinct flavors: balanced and sweet; green, leafy floral notes; soft spices and hints of nutmeg; buttery toffee; cinnamon and licorice.

“There’s an art and science to blending — and Fistful is a balance of both,” explained, Kelsey McKechnie. “Our creative process combined the art of nosing along with our vision for the whiskey and the science of blending different bourbons to create a unique taste all its own. We’re excited to showcase William Grant & Sons’ long-time blending experience by bringing it to the American whiskey scene.”
