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."

Ingredients: 
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.

Just great! I must have 30 bottles of aftershave, but couldn't resist ordering after your reviews, but I'm sure that I'll enjoy it.

You will wish you had ordered two bottles. Smile

I'm not a big fan of bay rum but this one is pretty tempting. Can anyone describe the scent, does the bourbon come through, or is it more of a traditional bay rum scent?

Thanks for the heads up on this - I was looking for another aftershave and like Bay Rum Styles.

Order on the way!

I am 2 hours away from them and occasionally get down there so I will definitely have to stop in.

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 have very dry skin, especially during the cold dry winter months.  This is the only after shave I can use without having to use a balm afterwards.

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.

The bottle is amazing! Reminds me of a Scotch whiskey. I would like to try it, but I'm almost sure they don't ship to Europe.

I would love to try this, mainly because the bottle looks amazing. But I am in the same boat as you Nikos they will not ship to Europe.
