Lux Row has unveiled Blood Oath Pact 9 Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. The latest edition in the annual series was finished in Oloroso Sherry casks.
Blood Oath Pact 9 combines some of the finest extra-aged bourbons Rempe could find, including a 16-year ryed bourbon and a 12-year ryed bourbon, as well as a 7-year ryed bourbon finished in Oloroso Sherry casks from southwest Spain.
“Blood Oath Pact 9 contains three great bourbons, and the Oloroso Sherry cask finish has resulted in a deep, dark amber liquid with long legs,” said master distiller and master blender John Rempe. “The Oloroso Sherry casks also bring out tasting notes of sweet sherry with hints of ripe fruit on the nose, as well as flavor notes highlighted by ripe fruits including figs, plums and raisins, with notes of molasses, chocolate and tobacco. This bourbon also provides a long-lasting finish characterized by fruit notes and complemented by hints of spicy oak. I’m proud to share Blood Oath Pact 9 with bourbon lovers.”
Each Blood Oath pact features a different colored label with this year’s edition boasting a deep crimson color. And like its predecessors, each bottle comes in a commemorative fire-branded wooden display box.
The official launch of Blood Oath Pact 9 will include a total allocation of 51,00 bottles, 1,400 of which will be held for a future Trilogy Pack release. The first Trilogy Pack–featuring Pacts 1, 2 and 3–was released in 2018, and the second Trilogy Pack–featuring Pacts 4, 5 and 6–hit shelves in September 2021. The next Blood Oath Trilogy Pack is set to be offered in 2024.
Bottled at 49.3% ABV, Lux Row Blood Oath Pact 9 is priced at $129.99 per 750 ml bottle. For more information, head over to the brand’s official website.
Lux Row launched Pact 7 back in 2021, with Pact 8 arriving last year.
