    Re: What bourbon are you drinking? Summer 2013

    My friend brought me a bottle from a startup distillery in Colorado. It's whitedog the distillery is planning on turning into "bourbon", even though it's 100% barley. Tastes like mostly fusel alcohols.
    Going to go make a nice pour of Baby Saz to wash the nastiness away.

    Thought Bourbon needed to be at least 51% corn?

    Ritt BIB, the new stuff from DSP-1. I'm not comparing it side by side with DSP 354, but standing alone it sure tasted fine by me.


    Followed it up with some Weller 12, and just in case anyone was wondering, Weller 12 is still quite excellent bourbon.

    That's why I called it "bourbon". Not sure if the distillery really said that or if my friend just misheard. Either way, based on the distillate I'm not getting my hopes up that barrel aging will make a good whisk(e)y of any sort.

    The CEHT SmB BIB is pretty tasty. Def prefer it over the SB expression.

    Had some Ritt DSP-1, followed by RRSBSB and an OWA/Weller Special Reserve blend I made out of two opens I had laying around last night. All good to great in their own respects.

    Re: What bourbon are you drinking? Summer 2013

    I enjoyed a number of bourbons, especially ones that were new to me, this past weekend at the Old Owl Tavern while staying down at the Beaumont Inn in Harrodsburg, KY. We hoisted some Elmer T. Lee in honor of his passing, of course. I really liked the Smooth Ambler Very Old Scout 14 yr. -- mature, but not a wood bomb; very nice spice. Also tried Town Branch (all green apple), Old Bardstown (no complaints!), Jefferson's Reserve and something labelled as Jefferson's Reserve VOB, which I would *guess* is simply Jefferson's Bourbon. And I got to turn an old friend who now lives in NC on to Four Roses Single Barrel, which he totally loved.
