    Anyone heard of or tried Winchester Bourbon?

    Was given a bottle for Thanksgiving

    Purchased at Total Wine in Phoenix, AZ.
    Terrepure Spirits, Charleston SC - contract packer
    Brand not in COLA
    Pretty smooth, some rye flavor
    Priced mid $20's

    Not special to me...plenty of drinkable and even tasty bourbons in this price range...

    Anyone else try this?

    Any ideas about its composition?






    Winchester Bourbon

    750ml

    In-Store Location: Aisle 05, Right


    Rich, Oak, Honey, Balanced

    USA- Winchester is distilled using an innovative, yet completely natural, process. Unlike simple filtration, there process removes a greater amount of harsh tasting minor alcohols and free radicals and provides additional taste enhancements, yeilding top quaility small batch bourbon.

    New to me, does that label say 90 proof?

    Most likely LDI/MGP sourced bourbon.

    I noticed it today and it says aged at least 2 years but I don't know anything about it.

    Oh it's contract whisky certainly, and being Straight Bourbon could have been made anywhere.

    Aged just long enough to be labeled Straight Bourbon, looks like the efforts were all in the packaging. What a rip off, for less than $20 I can get a bottle of fully aged Bonded Kentucky Bourbon.

    Never heard of it but would love to get a bottle for a gift for a friend who owns a gun shop!

    Perhaps that's the target market Thomas.

    Total Wine will often sell mystery labels of cheap booze in the hopes of big margins. They are usually on the shelf at eye level so they look like they are important labels. These bottles are strictly buyer beware.

    Yep, I spend a lot of time Googling while I am at Total Wine, trying to figure out what all of the random bourbons are. But I've never actually bought one of the randoms, as they have a good selection otherwise of the bigger guns (OWA, ETL, etc.), with good prices.
