    JTS Brown

    Forgive my ignorance. I did a search and come across a closed thread. I thought I might be able to add a bit to the discussion. From the thread, It appears that JTS Brown was by Heaven Hill. As a child, I remember this whiskey was made in Tyrone in Anderson Co. ... at what is now the Austin Nichols distillery. The neighbors used to complain about the smell when they would cook a batch of mash, but I loved it ... still do.

    It would "stink" up the whole valley, and my mom(a Southern Baptist), would go off about that "den of Satan" down the road.

    Yep, it's still around and at $13 (Here in WA) for the 100 Proof, its not a bad pour. I will replace the bottle I finished eventually, I know I got way more than $13 enjoyment out of it.

    I don't know when JTS Brown would have been made at Tyrone, but it was made on the other side of Lawrenceburg at what is now Four Roses.

    Now that you say that, maybe they(JTS Brown) had the sign at the bottom of the hill(just before the concrete bridge) on the Anderson Co. side of the line as a competition to A.N.. I always thought JTS was made there as well. My uncle worked that distillery before the war, if I see him, I will ask.

    It is interesting that he worked that long ago in the industry. I wonder (assuming he consumed bourbon then and later) if he thinks bourbon, I mean in general, is as good now as it was then.

    I had a taste of JTS Brown from the 1960's along with others earlier this year, someone brought it to one of our gatherings in Bardstown, and it was one of the best bourbons I ever had, rich and full.
