    Rogue Dead Guy whiskey

    Prior thread on this whiskey is closed so I am posting a new one.

    I am officially a sucker for something newly available! In addition to a cachaça I picked up yesterday I found a bottle of the Dead Guy whiskey that had been special ordered but never picked up and decided to pick it up on a whim despite the high cost and at best mixed reviews. Still appears to be "lightly" aged malt whiskey that spends a month or so in barrels on the "ocean".

    Kinda funky looking with the beer bottle package and stopper which appears to be a change from the original design from a pdf in John Hansell's less than encouraging review. No idea if it is any better now.

    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    This likely is the most honest post I've ever read Have you had a chance to try it? Whether it's good or not, it was in a way a trailblazer. Now, whiskies are made from Racer 5, Aventinus, and Old Rasputin, but Rogue was doing this many years ago.

    Proving only that beer can be distilled, corn mash is far more economical and produces almost twice as much alcohol per gallon.

    Not yet. Was planning to stick to beer today but since it is a "beer based" whiskey...

    I hope it's better than when it first rolled out. The initial bottle that Rogue sent me a few years back was kind of awful.

    I assure you, no improvements yet.

    Didn't get around to it but I am prepared for awful. That way, if it is any better than that it will become a pleasant surprise!

    I like to keep a sense of adventure about such things.

    So true! I will have to be sure to save some for just that occasion.

    It will likely be tough not to drink it all myself but I am prepared to make that sacrifice for the good of the society...
