    However, having said that, anything made with ingredients that spring from Arkansas soil is inherently superior. Woo Pig Sooie!!!

    A coup would be oak barrels sourced from local wood, that would be different.

    Well, Arkansas Oak has been used for the American Whiskey Industry.

    Yes it has and since the Ozarks are bisected by the Arkansas/Missouri state lines there's no reason it shouldn't.

    So true, in fact Arkansas used to have more than a few commercial distilleries producing sour mash whiskey. I bet Mississippi did too. Prohibition wiped them out.

    Re: 13th Colony Southern Rye

    A very nice friendly rep from the distillery brought some to a Tallahassee Whiskey society get together awhile ago - we all tasted it, but no one bothered with notes so no help there. No one bought a bottle. No one has mentioned it since. feh.

    If you really like LDI rye you might find this one mildly interesting but probably not at a premium price point.

    It did make it to the last GBS gathering. It wasn't terrible but I wasn't particularly impressed either. I think Gary may have tried it as well. The one I had is most certainly from MGPI despite what the distillery may claim about making their own.

    Still some speculation about whether they are now making and/or bottling their own make of this which is what they claim. They never bothered to respond to my emails so they are pretty much on my list of things not to make any effort to seek out or buy again at the moment even if it was good.
