Gentleman’s Cut Bourbon by Stephen Curry Review

by Daniel Galyean

When it comes to celebrity spirits, the market can often be flooded with products that prioritize style over substance. If you’ve been involved in the whiskey world for any amount of time you know exactly what I’m talking about. However, Stephen Curry’s Gentleman’s Cut Bourbon stands tall as a shining example of how celebrity collaborations can lead to exceptional results. The real star of the show here isn’t the fact that Curry’s name is on the label, but the careful choices he made in creating a truly unique and delightful spirit.

One of the unique aspects that sets Gentleman’s Cut Bourbon apart is Curry’s decision to partner with Boone County Distilling, a small and dedicated distillery. The attention to detail and commitment to quality that small distilleries often exhibit shines through in every sip of this remarkable bourbon.

But let’s talk about the flavor – the real star of the show. Gentleman’s Cut is aged for a minimum of 5 years, hitting the sweet spot that many bourbon enthusiasts crave for a tasty yet affordable drink.

The interplay between the high corn content, which stands at a robust 75%, and the 21% rye inclusion is a real attention grabber. As you take your first sip, the sweet corn greets your taste buds with a heavy dose of vanilla and caramel notes. This initial sweetness is a perfect setup for the heavy spices that follow thanks to the generous amount of rye in the mash-bill. The blend of rye adds a nice depth and complexity to the sweetness, creating a symphony of flavors. The spice profile is assertive, leaving a warm and lingering finish that beckons you back for another sip.

In a market where celebrity spirits can sometimes feel like mere novelty items, Gentleman’s Cut Bourbon by Stephen Curry is a breath of fresh air. It’s not just about the name – it’s about the quality, the craftsmanship, and the attention to detail that have gone into every aspect of this bourbon. Whether you’re a fan of basketball or simply a fan of great bourbon, Gentleman’s Cut deserves a place on your shelf. It’s a slam dunk in flavor and a testament to the potential of thoughtful collaborations in the spirits world.
