    Better than I would have hoped for.

    Re: Black Bourbon Cleveland Whiskey

    The idea of forced aging has come and gone several times through history; Publicker experimented with it briefly after Repeal, claiming the effects of years of age in a product 24 hours old and advertising with the line "don't fill your stomach from a nasty old keg". Interestingly, Frederick Stitzel had two patents in the late 19th century on the idea. One (US Patent 253,125) agitated the spirit with carbonic gas that had passed through burning charcoal, the other (US Patent 265,344) based itself on the carbonic gas idea but agitated the spirit with oxygen under pressure with heat and electrolysis. (You can see them if you search Google Patents for those numbers.)

    There is truly nothing new under the sun.

    Re: Black Bourbon Cleveland Whiskey

    Well, this has been released as Cleveland Whiskey Black Reserve at 100 proof.

    To prove that folks in my area are no better than Iowans, it's reported to be moving briskly off the shelves.

    No idea for price as it isn't listed in the state database.


    Here's the COLA

    Don't look for me to bring a bottle unless it is gifted to me.

    I am on a list to get a bottle on Tuesday. Curiosity got the best of me. At the very list I have another conversation piece on the bar. Once I get it and have a taste I will post my thoughts.

    Where are you getting this?

    I'm thinking like you are --- it might be crap, but it's something to talk about. Could use it as an example of bad form when I preach the Bourbon Gospel to the unbelievers.

    Re: Black Bourbon Cleveland Whiskey

    The warehouse for Cleveland area stores has it in stock and it will start showing up in stores as they get their next truck. Some stores on the west side got a delivery yesterday.

    My local spirits monger said that he expects it on Tuesday and the price will be between 30 and 40 bucks.

    Re: Black Bourbon Cleveland Whiskey

    If I'm reading the back label correctly, they didn't even distill the stuff. They bought "young bourbon" from a distillery (MGPI?), then did their voodoo on it. I'm looking forward to rndenks' verdict.

    Re: Black Bourbon Cleveland Whiskey

    I read at some point that Jim Rutledge was involved early, possibly with some bulk whiskey. Not sure who would be supplying them now. If they were doing it themselves, they would need new cooperage which would be expensive if the statement about 6 months in wood was accurate.

    They have pics on their FB of a worker filling a mash tub and a Vendome still and they have a DSP listed in the COLA. People have done more to try to look like a real distillery, but that's a heck of an expense if you don't intend to do public tours or actually distill.

    I'll have to cruise the street where their facility is located and roll down the windows. If they are mashing/distilling, the telltale smells will be obvious.
