    Oregon gets in on the LDI action

    While at my favorite liquor store today, I spotted a new bourbon, Big Bottom Whiskey "American Straight Bourbon Whiskey". Three years old, 91 proof, $29.95, marketed (bottled?) by some outfit in Hillsboro (just SW of Portland). Looking at the back of the bottle I see "Distilled in Indiana". Viewing the address via Google Earth it appears to be operating out of rented warehouse space.

    Here's the website.

    Later this month they'll be releasing a two year old that's been finished in port casks. I'm sure it's the same source as both are described as being 36% rye.

    A final note to those considering participation in VBT 311 - this is not it. I'm way too cheap to spend $30 on a three year old bourbon. I'm curious about LDI bourbon, but not that curious.

    I have a feeling I'll never get to see this in Florida.

    Hmm, wonder if it will taste like Templeton Rye?

    I figure this was said tongue-in-cheek, but on the off chance it was not, the LDI bourbons (e.g. Redemption, Harrison) do not resemble the LDI ryes.

    My eyes aren't great, but it did look like it was bottled at somewhere in the 90+ proof area so I would imagine it is pretty close to the Redemption Bourbon.

    Also, I thought it said it was 36% Rye or something, up above. That was why I made my smart-assed, and seemingly non-funny, comment.

    Huh?

    Who is flaming anyone?

    Well, I am "flaming" Templeton, but I didn't know that was against the TOS.

    In all seriousness, I saw the Rye, saw LDI and thought it may be a similar flavor as Templeton.

    Well, the juice before aging anyway.

    Ok, I'm behind the ball on this one, who or what is LDI??
    If you have anything Michter's or Pennco and would like to sell it or share it with me, please let me know.
