    Re: Woodstone Creek Straight Bourbon Whisky

    Last night, I had the chance to meet Don & Linda Outterson, the owners of Woodstone Creek. They were offering tastings of their wines and spirits at a fundraising event for the Leukemia Society.

    I found them both to be friendly and gracious people, dedicated to their craft. They both work full-time jobs in addition to their distillery / winery business.

    Don and I talked briefly about their Straight Bourbon. He is focused on collecting and replicating old spirits recipes and production techniques. He pointed out the his bourbon has the minimum of 51% corn, allowing the malted wheat, rye, and barley to have more of an influence. It is also barreled at a relatively low 107 entry proof. He's got a number of barrels aging and I look forward to seeing how this whiskey matures.

    Given the crowds at the event, our visit was short. I plan on dropping by his winery / distillery for on of the Saturday afternoon tastings. (Unfortunately, Ohio law currently restricts spirit tastings).

    Their web site is www.woodstonecreek.com. You also might want to use the search function, because there have been several other threads about this company and product.

    Re: Woodstone Creek Straight Bourbon Whisky

    My wife and I finally got the chance to visit the tasting room at Woodstone Creek Distillery / Winery in Cincinnati. We sampled a number of their unique wines (Ohio law does not allow spirits sampling). Our hands-down favorite was Taliesin, a dry honeywine made with lemongrass, ginger, champagne yeats, and extra hops. Delightfully crisp and delicate, it is not at all what you expect a honeywine to be.

    Woodstone just released their second barrel of straight bourbon (Barrel #1). Supposed to be similar to, yet slightly different from Barrel #2. The next release (later this year) may be a barrel-prrof one. They are also working on distributing their products in Colorado.

    Also coming up are light & dark rums and a beer schnapps that has been aging for several years. Got to visit briefly with owners Don & Linda Outerson, who are obviously passionate and really enjoy their craft. Don is even making a batch of Poteen (traditional Irish moonshine) for St. Pattys Day. It's not for release.... but I sure would love to get a taste!

    Have they removed the "offending wording"? I don't see it anywhere....did I miss it? Under what section? Their "Visit Us" tab does not have the info but does provide details for their tastings...wines, meads etc.

    I believe the wording that caused some to take offense is gone.

    Re: Woodstone Creek Straight Bourbon Whisky

    I am all for supporting the micro/craft distillers out there, they're attempting to accomplish what the rest of us only dream of, but IMHO don't waste your time on this one, particularly for the price. I just can't justify the $100 price tag for a product that's average at best. The BTI gave it an 84 rating, while Buffalo Trace (my favorite at the moment) earned a 93 at only $20 a bottle.

    $100 is to high. But I believe it's $50 here in Chicago.. Not to bad compared to $50 for a 375 of hudson. Where are you paying a $100 for Woodstone?

    I sampled some of this at Liquor World in Bardstown during the KBF. I can say I was not impressed at all. I wouldn't buy it at $15 a bottle. No offense to liquor world and JT it was the owners of Woodstone Creek that was giving out the samples.

    I was wrong on the price. It's $89.99. Sorry for that.
