    Re: Trader Joe's Bourbon

    Interesting -- might be worth a shot for $15. I kinda-sorta found some enjoyment from the Benchmark handle I bought awhile back, and I really enjoy BT.

    Unibroue is indeed great -- I really dug their Don De Dieu and they had a really refreshing apple brew.

    Re: Trader Joe's Bourbon

    Baby seems an incorrect cognomen for a fully aged, mature whisky, but if the nickname keeps the price down, well, I can't complain.

    Correction: BT emailed to tell me that the juice in this bourbon is actually distilled at Barton.

    Walgreen's carries a bunch of stuff - bourbon, blended Scotch, vodka, etc. - that carries a "Distilled at Barton" statement. Can't remember the name of the brand and I haven't tried any of it.

    Re: Trader Joe's Bourbon

    Is there an age statement on the label?

    Nope. Just straight whiskey.

    Re: Trader Joe's Bourbon

    My whims don't know shit and are not to be trusted. This stuff is NOT good, ha. It really is so ridiculously bitter on the finish. Shame too, as the nose and initial sweetness are fairly pleasant. This one is going straight to the kitchen for sauces, marinades, etc. It's the only chance this bottle has I'm afraid.
