    Kentucky Tavern, the Forgotten Wheater

    I am rereading The Book of Bourbon, I came upon this . Kentucky Tavern is , according to Gary & Mardee, a wheater. I didn't know that. It was owned by United Distillers so it was made at Bernhiem Distillery. It is an inexpensive whiskey, 1.75ml for 14 or so, usually in a plastic bottle.

    Oh, I don't know. Being one of the few defenders of wheated bourbon around here, I might have to give it a try. It goes for what, $6.95 for 1.75L ? It might even be better than Weller

    I think the price point and marketing is the same for Ky Tavern as any other industrial strength solvent!

    If I could use it to strip my deck and fence this spring, then I could get double duty out of it.

    Kentucky Tavarn...I've never tried it, but it can't be any worse than EC12! Talk about double duty....lets see....toilet bowl cleaner, grease remover,....No, I think you had it...paint stripper! See ya, H'wood

    Re: Kentucky Tavern, the Forgotten Wheater

    All this ruckus about a 4 yo wheater sent me out to the bunker. Lo and behold if a liter of KT wasn't there-- parked rather shallow, though, attempting (unsuccessfully) to obstruct frequent forays into the rare chestnuts hidded deep in the bunker. Nothing to get excited about here, but nothing worthy of stripping the varnish off grandma's rocker on the porch, either. Just a simple, sweet, (did I mention simple?), unobtrusive whiskey. Nothing's screaming here, so h'wood can relax, his EC 12 bottle is way louder!

    Re: Kentucky Tavern, the Forgotten Wheater

    I've never tried Kentucky Tavern, although I did see it on Friday when I went to my neighborhood liquor store. It was on the bottom shelf, of course, and I can't say that I was tempted to try it...

    I'll agree with you on the EC12, hollywood. I'm not for sure what to do with my mostly full 750ml of it, but you've given me some ideas...

    Bobby,

    Your post made me curious so I picked up a half pint at the LB for $1.99 This one struck me as loud and harsh. This is the hardest wheater to drink that I have tried. Its only redeaming quality is it seems to lack the tannins that some other wheaters posses. Might make a decent mixer though
