Derby City Chop Shop Small Batch Shave Tonic...
The Derby City Chop shop is apparently the place to get a cut in Louisville...
perhaps a shave...
and definitely don't leave without a bottle of their Small Batch Shave Tonic...
"Inside this bottle is a handcrafted post shave elixir concocted with the true Kentucky gentleman in mind.
Winter Reserve is a twist on the classic men's scent, Bay Rum.
Using our native spirit, Bourbon, ingredients are steeped for two months allowing the blend to fully mature.
After filtering twice, each bottle is then filled, labeled, and numbered individually by hand."
Alcohol, Witch Hazel, Aloe Vera, Vegetable Glycerin, Kentucky Bourbon,
Pimenta Racemosa Leaves, Cinnamon, Cloves, Blood Orange Zest,
Vanilla, Rosewood, Allspice, Rosewater
7.05 Fl Oz
The recipe is basic Bay Rum, but adds bourbon for a twist, witch hazel for astringent and glycerin for moisturising.
The scent is definitely Bay Rum, but dominated by Vanilla and a hint of Bourbon.
Each bottle is individually numbered, dated and batch marked.
The presentation is quite simply without peer.
This tonic smells as good as it looks!
Thank-you to my good friend Johnny for such a wonderful gift!

This Small Batch carries a milder scent than my Dominica Bay Rum Lime along with a lighter alcohol smack upon application. Post-shave feel is exactly what I look for in an aftershave. It has been a pleasant surprise. Along with the non-alcoholic Bey Shave tonic, they've become my favorites.

I'm also not a friend of Bay Rum scents but, if anything, this is a refined "lite" Bay Rum. It is one of the most effective AS's that I have tried.

I'm not much of a scent guy, and that includes spicy concoctions, but I became familiar with bay rum at an early age because that's what my father used to use. I still find the scent a little trying at times, but it dissipates quickly and the after-shave feel works for me. The CS tonic as noted above is milder, so that helps.
