    Town Branch wins SIP awards

    I guess I have to try this stuff now as it just won a gold medal in the coveted SIP awards. Anyone have this before?

    Who covets the SIP awards?
    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?

    Re: Town Branch wins SIP awards

    I had to look this up, not knowing anything about SIP...

    Straight Bourbon
    Best in Class - Tatoosh
    Platinum - 4 Spirits
    Platinum - Woodford Reserve Master's Collection Four Wood
    Gold - Early Times 354
    Gold - Old Forest (sic) 86
    Gold - Town Branch
    Silver - Woodford Reserve Double Oadked (sic)
    Silver - Woodford Reserve
    Bronze - Old Forester Signature

    What is a Tatoosh?

    My favorite of the bunch finished last. And to think that B-F paid $400 per entry.

    Re: Town Branch wins SIP awards

    I tried Town Branch last fall after a distillery tour and was disappointed. I was at McScrooges last week and did a tasting of their current bottling and found it quite enjoyable. Not a long finish but an enjoyable bourbon neat - IMHO. Brought one bottle home for the bar.

    Is this a joke? Or did no major other than B-F enter the running?

    The one that seems curious to me is the 4 Spirits. Sounds like it is sourced MGPI bourbon!

    Of course then "it's brought here to Oregon where it continues to age in our unique Northwest climate, we put it through a series of top secret steps to redefine and improve upon it’s flavor without disqualifying it as a bourbon."

    Wonder what the heck that means...
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    Doesn't Town Branch have two versions? The young one that is theirs and a fully aged one that they sourced?
