    Re: "Noreaster" bourbon from Triple Eight

    I got to try a small sample of this today at a local tasting. The distributor was unusually helpful. He said it is Heaven Hill bourbon, aged 2 years in KY and then 2 years on Nantucket.

    It was not bad, but I didn't get to properly evaluate it. It might be my imagination, but the ocean air aging did seem to give it a Scotch-like nuance.

    If I make it down for the Sept. Festival, we'll bring a bottle along.

    Can you describe the bottle, the color of the whiskey, any age indicated, ABV, etc.?

    Does the Tuthilltown Baby Bourbon not count? Not trying to be a smart alec, I'm really curious if it does not specifically match the qualifying criteria. They seem to be making Rye too.

    Indeed you are right and I when I wrote that I didn't know about Tuthilltown, and I believe its products only came out after that post. I take a great interest in them as e.g., my review posted in the last two days of the Four Grain Bourbon from this company.

    Re: "Noreaster" bourbon from Triple Eight

    My folks live on Nantucket; Cisco's beers are very good--the Whales' Tail IPA is exceptional. When I was there last spring, my father and I tasted some of the Nor'Easter bourbon. It was palatable, but not that great. I would not buy it unless it spends more time in the wood, as I found it over sweet and under aged. I remember it had a strange, almost tequila-like finish. ymvv, of course.
