    Re: Break'g & Entering?...Breackenridge?

    I agree Jim, but I don't care for any promotion by association whether it's a resort address or a former long dead President.

    Too much mystery around Breckenridge. They're selling their resort town name as much or more as they're selling their bourbon. If they start being legitimately honest about what they're bottling, I might try a bottle. If they continue to be vaguely "honest" (hey, there's SOME of our own distillate in there!) then there's no chance.
    I must apologize. River North uses High West barrels. (Some-timers kicking in.) Point well taken.

    Re: Break'g & Entering?...Breackenridge?

    Breckenridge's other claim to fame is cutting the whiskey with rocky mountain water. imagine that, we've gotten to the point where someone actually sells the fact that they're watering down your whiskey. Not water in the distillation mind you, but WATERING DOWN! What's next, "We package in a smaller 700ml bottle to store more of the flavor you used to get at 750ml."

    That last statement is actually insulting.

    Agreed, Breckenridge Bourbon tastes pretty light and young. But it's still alright.

    Break'g & Entering?...Breackenridge?

    I got a pour of Breckenridge while visiting Colorado last month. My assessment is the same as Danger's. It was alright. Nothing off-putting, but nothing memorable either. Glad it saved me from spending $45-50 for a bottle in Texas.

    The Distributor is really pushing this around here. It's all over in bars, restaurants and package stores. My local chef owned restaurant was sold the same line about awards and such and they were excited to tell me about it. So, it's young low proof and expensive? No thanks. Taste is fine for what it is but at that price? Pass.
