    Zeppelin Bend

    Anybody tried this?:
    http://newhollandbrew.com/corp/spirit/whiskey
    It's available locally at about $70. Some of the beers this company makes are extremely good, but I'm hesitant to put down 70 bucks for something I might not care for.
    Alternatively, maybe I'll just learn how to tie this knot.

    I spouted off on Zeppelin here:
    http://www.straightbourbon.com/forum...light=zeppelin

    Assuming this is the same whiskey I had (I don't remember the word bend in the name), I think it's good, but I don't think it's $70 good. A & L had it at one time for $60 (I tried to order it once), but I never went to pick it up after I heard the price.

    OK - it doesn't come come up in a search on Zeppelin Bend, though I had looked at that thread sometime earlier. Guess it wasn't on my radar at that point. I wonder if a local bar or restaurant might have it available, so I wouldn't have to invest in a whole bottle to try it.

    Re: Zeppelin Bend

    Their website does not indicate if sampling is part of the tour or not....though they have a bar...and they charge for tickets...I would hope there is some kind of tasting offered. CAS is the distillery / brewery very far from your location? It might make for an interesting Saturday jaunt...the only day they offer tours.

    P.S. I see you are East quite a bit....a trip across and up the coast....maybe 3-4 hrs?

    Yeah, probably about that far. A bit of a haul for a possible sample, unless it was combined with something else.

    I'm having a glass of the Zeppelin Bend right now.

    Fairly similar to the Zeppelin, but without any of the sweetness or body, which I would guess is a result of less corn in the mash. Like a really cheap, smokeless Scotch.

    I don't say this much, and all apologies to the New Holland people who make amazing beer, but this whiskey blows.

    Yup, the beer I've had is excellent. Too bad about the whiskey...

    Well, I'll finally taste some barrel samples tomorrow. Report to follow. I'm hoping for the best.

    Good luck! I hope it's better from the barrel than it was from the bottle I had.

    That's my hope as well.
