    Prichard's Bourbon?

    Greetings all,

    I was wondering if any of you know about Prichard's Bourbon. Prichard's is a Tennessee company, but, on the bottle ot reads "Distilled in Kentucky".
    Tastings? Any information would be helpful. Thankyou.

    I've had an open bottle on the shelf for about a year now. There's a reason that I haven't emptied it quickly.

    Here's the quick story.

    Prichard makes rum at his distillery in Tennessee, not bourbon. He buys fully-aged bourbon from one of the Kentucky producers, tops off the barrels, ages it a little longer, and calls it "double-barrelled bourbon."

    I've never had it, in part because it costs way too much for what it is, and because of what I've heard from people such as Craig.

    Believe it or not, last week I saw this bottle with a whopping price tag of $70 in a store in another state. It will be there for a while I'm sure. Someday, perhaps when it has been out of production for 20 years (due to obvious reasons), those bottles will be 'dusty finds' for some future collector(s).

    Normally, when I see/notice it on a shelf, it is $35-45. As with you and others, I have never tried it due to price plus more negatives than positives herein.

    The Prichard's Crystal Rum is mighty tasty though.
