    BOTM 5/13: Wathen's

    Thanks to a suggestion from a fellow member, we're gonna switch gears once again, and go with a BOTM that is a little more nondescript this time. Wathen's

    No comment from me at all this time, as I have yet to buy or taste this one at all. Bet y'all are relieved.

    Post way! Let's hear it for Wathen's.


    Cheers! Joe


    PS. Yes I'm early again. I wouldn't hold your breath for next month though.

    Gotta say, Wathens was one of my standbys.

    Its a fine "table bourbon". 8 year single barrel, nothing wrong with that.

    It's pretty good stuff. I didn't think it was better than EC12, Weller 12 or 4RSmB, which is in the same price range, but I certainly wouldn't mind another glass of it right now.

    You might want to take a closer look at that label. It's NAS.

    Depends on your definition of "makes".

    Tucker, any producer can sell a whisky but only a distiller can make it.

    I had a bottle of this 2-3 years ago. It was not bad but not very interesting either. It's not sold here but I saw plenty on the shelves in Ketucky. I didn't pick any up. I spent my money on handles of VOB BiB, Heaven Hill White Label BiB and AAA 10 y/o among other things.

    I'm familiar with the original Wathen's put out by Charles Medley using whisky he made while serving as the Master Distiller for Glenmore but I understand those stocks were depleted over a decade ago. I don't know to what extent the Medley family is involved with the current brand but since they are no longer making whisky it must be sourced. I was figuring Heaven Hill.
