    Re: Koval Bourbon coming 12/5/12

    I toured their facility last year, and I asked a lot of questions. I think I annoyed the guy giving the tour a little in fact.

    Their barrels are all stored inside, in a climate-controlled environment. I imagine it gets pretty warm in there in summer, but not very cold in winter.

    What surprised me is that they said have no current plans to age anything long-term, which is counter to what I hear from most micros. It seems they usually sell some young juice to recoup costs, and keep some older stuff aging for later. According to this guy, that's not the plan at Koval. He gave me the line about letting the flavors of the grains really shine by aging them very gently etc...

    According to my mental conversion table that's four Bartons.

    Re: Koval Bourbon coming 12/5/12

    Did a groupon tasting at Koval last year.**Brother in law bought the 47th Ward which is okay and I bought the dark wheat which is also okay. The head distiller at Koval is austrian and has a family history of distilling fruit liqueurs and other flavored alcohol. Not sure how it's going to translate to Bourbon but I am willing to give it a shot on a trial basis.

    Slightly less than four VOB BIBs here, but my money's (literally) on the VOB.

    I've caught myself computing the cost of things other than whiskey on Barton BIB or HH 6 year BIB dollars too.
