    Re: What "Other American Whisky" are you drinking?

    For some reason, I'm enjoying Corsair Old Punk this evening...I'm guessing it's the fresh batch of Halloween Oreos I'm pairing it with....

    Haven't cracked either one yet, but I purchased Balcones Baby Blue and Texas Single Malt today - at MI state minimum, too!

    Re: What "Other American Whisky" are you drinking?

    Cracked another Balcones Single Malt last night - one of my favs. Not until the whole Balcones dustup started did I start reading more about the company. I didn't realize that the TSM went through several iterations, or experiments, to find the ideal proof and barreling procedure. The experimental batches were released with handwritten ABVs and a description of the wood used for aging. All of the handwritten ABVs were something other than 53 except for the final experiment which represented the final recipe. Once they decided on 53 ABV and an aging process, the ABV statement was in typeface on the label and the handwritten description of the wood disappeared from the back label. Anyway, I've been hunting for those TSMs with handwritten labels - only found 2 so far with the final handwritten ABV of 53. The one I opened last night was a recent release though. I'm bunkering the others b/c I think they're neat since they represent the batch that Chip felt was was his target profile for this product going forward.

    I also acquired a Rumble Cask Reserve from a friend last week - this one is pretty rare - only a few hundred bottles per year.

    My own! A blend of Dark Horse (the Canadian whisky which is heavy on the flavouring rye component), Jack Daniels (vat of different kinds of Jack), CC 100% Rye Grain, and dashes of Forty Creek Evolution and Blanton. A soft rich very flavorful whiskey, very happy with this one. Velvet taste with complex tangs at the edges.

    Well, got to keep my hand in it. This one is really good though, the sweetness of the Jack remains but not the "excess" wood and correlatively it gives more a U.S. straight character to the Canadian flavouring ryes.
