Magnus means great, and Joseph Magnus Bourbon is exactly that

In our business you hear rumors, and all the rumors swirling around Joseph Magnus Straight Bourbon said this was a bottle we needed to try. A double gold medal winner with three different barrel finishes isn’t something you see every day. Imagine my pleasure when on first sip this proved to be everything I had heard and more. The nose brings to mind chocolate covered cherries, candied orange peel, and a faint note of mulled wine. The flavor of the bourbon follows through on all these notes with the added bonus of coffee and cinnamon turning up mid-palate. Add to this a finish that is too smooth for a 100-proof bourbon and you have an incredibly complex pour that is worth every bit of praise heaped upon it. – Dave Helt, Vine & Table Spirits Buyer 

When I taste a new release bourbon I generally have an idea of what to expect: I’ve either tasted other expressions from the same maker or I’ve heard enough about it to begin to form an opinion. When I was introduced to Jos. A. Magnus bourbon, though, I had no idea what to expect. But the moment I held up the glass it won me over. Rich, dark, and warm, with a lovely nose and plums and crème brûlée on the palate. As it turns out, Magnus is based on 9 year old bourbon from a maker that I’m already inclined to like, finished in Cognac, PX and Oloroso Sherry casks, bottled at 100 proof – this expression checks off all my boxes. An award-winning bottle, now available for the first time in Indiana. – Dan Angelo, Vine & Table Spirits Buyer
