    George Washington Distillery LE Vatted

    Hey all!

    Anybody ever have the George Washington Distillery Limited Edition Vatted American Whiskey?

    I have a sample here, given to me from somebody. It's a small little bottle from a nice small package, with it's own tiny shot glass. The bottle reads (on the back)...

    This limited edition is a unique blend of Jack Daniel's, Jim Beam, Wild Turkey, Very old Barton, Virginia Gentleman, George Dickel, Makers Mark, Woodford Reserve, I.W. Harper, Rebel Yell and Platte Valley (geez that's a mouthfull...)
    commingled and aged at Mount Vernon.


    umm.. okay

    So I am going to make a video tasting of this thing... but has anyone had it before? They have been starting to sell whiskey made at Mount Vernon and I am curious if anyone has had any...

    It sounds totally dyslexic!!

    I don't know anyone who has tasted it recently, but Chuck Cowdery opened a thread about it here
    My name is Joel Goodson. I deal in human fulfillment.
    I grossed over eight thousand dollars in one night. Time of your life, huh kid?

    I've had it! It was OK, but IMO nothing to write home about.

    Check out this thread:

    Make sure to read Chuck's comments later in the thread, as he had a hand in making some of this stuff...

    I've also had the unaged rye that they were selling during the grand opening -- again, if I had a bottle (they sold out really quick) it would be worth more to me as a collector's item than it would be as a drink, since it's basically white dog.

    It won't be more of what we did. It'll likely be some rye whiskey that was actually distilled there in the recreated distillery.

    What is really going to be tasty is the peach brandy we made there in october.
