Bourbon Podcast Declares 2023 Whiskey of the Year: Garrison Brothers Cowboy Bourbon

Published:

The hosts of Bourbon Podcast sampled more than 100 whiskeys in an effort to find the best of the best.

After downing the last drop, Garrison Brothers Cowboy Bourbon scored the top honors as Whiskey of the Year.

“The 2023 release of Cowboy Bourbon really stood out to us,” says Joe Nassif, co-host of Bourbon Podcast. “It is a big, bold, hazmat bourbon that is packed with flavor. It tastes like a dessert in a glass, with notes of brown sugar, chocolate, raisins, and cinnamon.”

Master Distiller Donnis Todd selects each barrel of Cowboy Bourbon which is then stashed in Garrison Brothers’ barrel barns for at least six years. The 2023 release was limited to 9,600 bottles coming in at 140.9 proof.

“Cowboy 2013, the first Cowboy ever released, put Garrison Brothers and Texas on the bourbon map,” Todd says. “It’s an honor a decade after the first release having the 2023 Cowboy named as the 2023 Whiskey of the Year.”

Bourbon Podcast says that the whiskey “is bottled at cask strength, uncut and unfiltered, providing a unique flavor that is distinctly Garrison Brothers and unapologetically Texas.
