    Calumet Farms Bourbon? ... Lexington Bourbon?

    Here's a shout 'into the ether' about a couple of new Bourbons that have just shown up on my local whisky monger's shelf:
    Calumet Farms Bourbon
    Lexington Bourbon


    Has anyone had any experience with either of these? CFB is asking $50 here in the Mitten State for a 750.
    Lex'tn is asking about $28. Both are 86-proof, I believe, so not especially deep in the barrel there. ...And, being unknown I wonder if they're both NDP brands? Anybody know? Please help a wanderer of the liquor store not get lost among the posers, or pass up a worthwhile dram.

    Seen em both but no clue what's inside. Racehorses that didn't pan out? Calumet is a most beautiful farm, however.

    Re: Calumet Farms Bourbon? ... Lexington Bourbon?

    The Calumet popped up at three or four places at once around Louisville. It shows up as being from Western Spirits Distillery in Bowling Green, KY. If i read the data right, has to be NDP product since they've not been around long enough to have aged product. That being said...DAMN! they're out of they're mind on the price.

    Standard sourced Bourbon in a fancy bottle with a tourist price. Nothing to see here folks, move along.

    Check the list SKU posted on his blog (and linked on Chuck Cowdrey's). It will get you the bottler and "producer" of the Lexington but the juice is mystery. I checked on it for a buddy who got "packaging fever" and picked it up. Young low proof mystery juice=no fly zone for this consumer. As for the Calumet, ran into some at Toddy's in B-town. The owner seemed to think it had some merit and was a very limited production. I passed.

    I believe that the Lexington bourbon was sourced from Barton. The folks behind it were at Liquor World last fall and I chatted with them about the product.
    My name is Joel Goodson. I deal in human fulfillment.
    I grossed over eight thousand dollars in one night. Time of your life, huh kid?

    We passed on this one. Same place that offers a cognac infused vodka called twenty grand.

    Plus birddog flavored whiskeys.

    Lexington bourbon has sold for us but I can't call it anything special. Horses, Lexington, bottle that looks like woodford.

    Carry on.

    If I remember reading the label correctly, Lexington makes no claim to be a straight bourbon. It tasted pretty young, and certainly not worth anywhere near $28.

    I'm still working on birddog flavored whiskeys, that's a vivid image.
