    I'm thinking of ramping up the Uncle Jesse Distilling Co. Cooter will be my Brand Ambassador.

    Re: J.R. Ewing Bourbon? Really?

    Bourbon blog says: "According to our recent interview with Prairie Creek Beverages, J.R. Ewing Bourbon is a 4 year old Bourbon from a distillery in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky with 88% corn and 12% wheat. "

    I've got a couple of bottles, but haven't even thought to open one yet.

    How much time did it spend in the barrel? A three hour tour, a three hour tour....

    Hell this stuff is no sillier than the Ron Burgundy Great Odins Raven Scotch.

    Re: J.R. Ewing Bourbon? Really?

    I bought a bottle a month ago and finally got around to tasting it with my dad. Considering I bought it purely for the novelty value, it's really quite a decent bourbon. To me, it is sometimes sweet (as you would expect), but sometimes dry. Sometimes it seems like it starts out dry, and then turns sweet in the mouth, depending on how long you hold it in your mouth. Maybe my palate is having an off night? I wouldn't buy it again for the $35 I paid, but I might buy another once in a while at $20-25. I'll leave you with a couple pics.

    The bottle:

    what a color difference! granted, its 80proof versus 100proof, but still...
    Think about how stupid the average person is.....then realize that half of them are more stupid than that.

    Re: J.R. Ewing Bourbon? Really?

    I was also initially surprised by the color difference, but if you consider that we're comparing something 4 years old to something closer to 6, that's almost a 50% difference. Still, I'd like to point out again that the JR Ewing bourbon is really a decent pour, if you put the $35 figure out of your head. I'd like to try more MGPI whiskeys, but not at NDP prices.

    Locally it is $49, it's a NDP, and it's 80 proof. Oh and there are plenty of bottles sitting on the shelf.
