15 Stars just released their latest expression – First West Bourbon. Following a similar approach to the previously released First West Rye, this new expression marries straight bourbon whiskeys from Kentucky, Indiana and Tennessee aged 15, nine and seven years, the company states.

Part of the First WestTM series, this limited release is now available on the shelves of select retailers in Kentucky, Indiana, Tennessee, Missouri, Georgia, Louisiana, Florida, Massachusetts, Illinois, Wisconsin, Oklahoma and Nebraska as well as online through Seelbach’s and 15STARS.com, according to the company.

Award-Winning Bourbon

First West Fine Aged Bourbon, bottled at 106 proof (53% ABV), has already won Double Gold and is one of two finalists for Best Straight Bourbon at the New York World Wine & Spirits Competition in 2022, the company states. The bourbon opens with notes of aged oak and scents of maple, vanilla cream and toasted pecans, alongside flavors of cinnamon, plum and orange peel.

“We are proud to pay homage to our country’s heritage with our First West series as we continue this tradition of award-winning whiskey with our latest release of First West Bourbon,” shared Ricky Johnson, 15 STARS co-founder, in a news release. “We strive to match the dedication of the great artisans of the past to ensure that fans will savor every sip of our fine aged bourbons.”

15 Stars is honoring Kentucky’s long history and tradition of bourbon with a metal stopped inspired by the first U.S. coinage, which displayed 15 stars, according to the company.
