The owner seemed to think it had some merit and was a very limited production. I passed.
    The sales man for Lexington told me it was Barton juice purchased off the still years back and paid rent on somewhere. They also released Sam Houston American Straight Whiskey which is the same lot of juice but with Caramel coloring added.
    Bourbon only requires a glass.

    Yeah how would Poodle or Rottweiler flavored whiskeys compare? Maybe they should be served as a flight.

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

    I saw that, yesterday in fact, while buying gas a guy walks us next to me and sets a cold one on the counter. I was surprised to see the Bud label and strawberry flavor. Then I realized the guy was buying it at 8:15 in the morning while talking to his job on the cell. Guess the berry stuff is not as heavy on your breath when you arrive at work.

    I'm pretty sure straight whiskey cannot have caramel added.

    That's true, no caramel topping in Straight Bourbon.

    With bourbon/whiskey it doesn't happen as much. I guess the honey/cinnamon flavor trend is part of it.
    There should be a law against honey and/or cinnamon being added to perfectly good bourbon. Isn't that what corn liquor is for? As to the Lexington Bourbon... It has a pretty dolled bottle label for the collectors of such things and it is excellent to receive as a gift.

    Do the "straight" rules apply to just whiskey without identifiers like corn or bourbon or rye? The new Sam Houston only says straight whiskey. I bought the Lexington and won't get it again.

    A blend of straights may be labeled as a Straight.

    I was scratching my head over how PVW could be a blend of SW/Bernheim/BT & still be considered "Straight" - this explanation makes perfect sense.

    I should add that rule holds if the straights originate from the same State. A straight from Indiana mixed with a straight from Kentucky is called a blend of straights which to me sounds like protectionist nonsense.
