    Pure Kentucky?

    Anyone ever heard of or tried Pure Kentucky? I'm in upstate NY and had never seen it before. It is a 107 proof 15 year, comes in a nice velvet bag and it is absolutely DELICIOUS!

    This is from Kentucky Bourbon Distillers, Ltd. It is listed in their small batch collection.

    I saw it when I was shopping in Atlanta a few years ago, but I passed it up because of the high price (I think it was $50). It looked good, though.

    I picked up a bottle of this last summer when I went through Kentucky. I like it a lot...it's very tasty, and a bit woody, which I like. I think I paid about $26 for it, and it's well worth it. I've never seen it outside of Kentucky.

    My friend owns a liquor store so I'm able to get a lot of neat things. I saw it in one of his catalogs and and to try it because I had never heard of it.

    Pure Kentucky is not 15 years old, but rather a blend of 10-12YR Bourbon. If the retailer is asking $50.00 a bottle, I probably would never step foot in that store again. A reasonable price would range from $30-35. It is an excellent bourbon, a true small batch, and it also won a Double Gold at the San Francisco Spirits Competition this year.

    Well, Drew's family bottled it, so...

    Plus, bourbon doesn't always remain barreled between distilling and bottling dates. So, if a bourbon distilled in 1988, for example, is transferred from barrels to stainless steel tanks -- as Julian has done with his rye -- in 1998 or 2000, it would be between 10 and 12 years old forever, regardless of when it was later bottled.

    Maybe I am mis-remembering the price. It was about three years ago or maybe even four.
