Ok I'll be the first:
Who did that shot of J.R.?

Watch out if this works. Can't be long before Sue Ellen Ewing "My Friend", Gregory House MD "Ease Your Pain" or Ted Kennedy's Very Special Old Chappaquiddick barrel proof bourbons hit the shelves.

Goofy and a bit ridiculous, but in all honestly he's only marginally more fictitious than the legends of Elijah Craig, Evan Williams and co.

Yeah, but who's even gonna recognize the name? Granny? It just doesn't sing.
May as well have gone for 'I Dream of Bourbon'.

They could also issue a younger bottling called Maynard G. Krebs Bourbon

I've heard that the 80 proof Barney Fife Bourbon is a little "thin". :slappin:

I'm thinking of ramping up the Uncle Jesse Distilling Co. Cooter will be my Brand Ambassador.

Bourbon blog says: "According to our recent interview with Prairie Creek Beverages, J.R. Ewing Bourbon is a 4 year old Bourbon from a distillery in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky with 88% corn and 12% wheat. "

I've got a couple of bottles, but haven't even thought to open one yet.

Gilligan's Extra-Quick Age-Accelerated Island Whiskey.

How much time did it spend in the barrel? A three hour tour, a three hour tour....

Hell this stuff is no sillier than the Ron Burgundy Great Odins Raven Scotch.

I bought a bottle a month ago and finally got around to tasting it with my dad. Considering I bought it purely for the novelty value, it's really quite a decent bourbon. To me, it is sometimes sweet (as you would expect), but sometimes dry. Sometimes it seems like it starts out dry, and then turns sweet in the mouth, depending on how long you hold it in your mouth. Maybe my palate is having an off night? I wouldn't buy it again for the $35 I paid, but I might buy another once in a while at $20-25. I'll leave you with a couple pics.

The bottle:
19624

Color compared to EW BIB:
19625

what a color difference! granted, its 80proof versus 100proof, but still...

I was also initially surprised by the color difference, but if you consider that we're comparing something 4 years old to something closer to 6, that's almost a 50% difference. Still, I'd like to point out again that the JR Ewing bourbon is really a decent pour, if you put the $35 figure out of your head. I'd like to try more MGPI whiskeys, but not at NDP prices.

Locally it is $49, it's a NDP, and it's 80 proof. Oh and there are plenty of bottles sitting on the shelf.

The store I work at had a liquor "reset" today. Basically they moved everything around to confuse customers. And also took out some products and put a few new ones in. I was disappointed to see that this made it into the new set. :(

$49 - Strike 1
NDP - Strike 2
80 proof - Strike 3

And JR Ewing bourbon strikes out!

While traveling for work last summer, I stopped in a liquor store. Upon entering, I noticed an ECBP sitting on the top shelf (not behind the counter). Unfortunately, someone was standing in front of it checking out a bottle of J.R. Ewing Bourbon. He had the bottle in his hand and then briefly glanced up at the ECBP before deciding to buy the J.R. Ewing. Something can be said for a pretty bottle and catchy name. I quickly swooped in and grabbed the ECBP before someone else came over to look at another bottle of J.R. Ewing.

Awesome! That may be the only good thing about JR Ewing.
