    Breckenridge

    I have heard good things about Breckenridge bourbon with awards and other comments but looking at this site I dont see it mentioned much as far as anyones normal drink or a favorite. Is it because of the higher price and low age of it? or not a Kentucky bourbon? just interested in some comments on this bourbon?

    It's been discussed quite a bit. Here is a link to an old thread . . .

    Too young, too low proof, too much cost

    I read the link to the earlier discussion, but don't understand how the bourbon is sourced from Kentucky. Anyone know the mash bill on this or which distillery is selling the bourbon to them?

    According to the distiller it has some older sourced bourbon but because it is also blended with some of their own bourbon they have to say the 2 year age statement. They hope to go 100% their own but it takes time. they were going to build a new 10000 sq ft "rickhouse" to increase production during mud season along with a continuous still. I enjoy it but it is a little pricy. You can find it in the lower $30s around Breck and Dillon/Silverthorne but also as high as $49. It is a neat place. They have bottling parties where locals (including my daughter) bottle their spirits. She sends me mine.

    They also offer a single barrel that is 100% their juice for $999. Haven't tried it.

    The mash bill matches one made by MGP. Sourced from Kentucky may simply mean the whisky was purchased from one of the whisky brokers who have an office in Kentucky.

    It beat Pappy 23 so it's the best bourbon ever. That's how it works, right?!

    They should just put a big 30 neck label on and watch their sales soar.

    I guess we shouldn't question the price then, eh?

    I have to confess that I run a wine/spirits shop and Breck flies based on that "beat Pappy" review/competition however long ago. I have to restock each week and I don't really recommend it because I find it average. As long as the customer is assured (by their bottle talker) that it is better than Pappy 23 it will blow out of here....and yet I wonder how many of these customers have had Pappy 23.....
