    The still must be made out of salvaged DeLorean parts.

    I like how they use modern "sciency" terms to essentially skirt the true science behind making good whiskey.

    They wanted to call it the Flux Capacitor, but David warned them of the trademark infringement probabilities!

    So what's the word? Was it any good? I saw a few bottles of this on a shelf at a NC ABC store but it was $28.95, if I remember correctly. A little steep for something that is a mystery.

    Producers who use mystery words usually charge steep prices.

    It's OK for a 2 year old, but I won't buy another. In the $20+ price range there are too many great bourbons. And now that I know where it is made, I can't get pass that feeling I had when I ate genetically engineered beef. What is their "secret" process? It is also interesting that one store told me it is a new wheater while another called it rye based. I don't think anyone really knows but it doesn't taste like a wheater, although I have never tasted a 2 year old wheater.

    One last note, It doesn't have that much of a taste on its own. I mixed the second half of the bottle with some 1979 EW Black (very distinct strong rummy taste) 4 parts THCB to 1 part EWB. The EWB flavor overwhelmed the THCB but made sipping much more enjoyable.

    Re: Trey Herring's Carolina Bourbon

    I was at a Bourbon tasting last night in Wilmington, NC and Trey Herring was in attendance to speak about his Bourbon. I ask some questions and found out some info on it. It is a wheated Bourbon with a mash bill that contains 24% wheat. Aged 3.5 years in 53 gallon barrels. The barrels are from a cooperage in Indiana.
    I found the bourbon pleasant but you could definitely tell it was young. I would actually like to see an older product and Try stated that he is working on that.

    He's 'working on' making it older?

    Involves lots of staring at a clock and tapping of fingers. Complicated stuff.
