    Another Yellowstone question

    Any info as to who makes what is in the bottle?

    90 proof, says fully aged, I doubt it.

    I did search here first and some thought HH. How about it B-jo?

    Hi Rick!!!!!!!

    Good to see you posting again Welcome back

    Nope, Yellowstone label does not belong to Heaven Hill...I think it's bottled by David Sherman.

    Re: Another Yellowstone question

    Hey

    Hope all is well with you and yours. I am now in AR so I am a bit closer to KY. Perhaps I will make it this Sept. Had some life changes but working through it all.

    Yeah I saw who owned the label but was betting they did not make the Bourbon. I had my fingers crossed it was you guys as I can drink all your stuff.

    I plan to open it tonight no great expectations I just hope I can stand it.

    I'm a lurker.

    Luxco (formerly David Sherman) produces Yellowstone. It's terrible.

    Luxco gets the whiskey for its Rebel Yell bourbon from Heaven Hill. They say that on their web site. (Scroll down to the bottom of the page. Bernheim = Heaven Hill.)

    They also sell Ezra Brooks. Whiskey from Heaven Hill? The web site is down right now, preparing for a relaunch, so they're not saying.

    Yellowstone? On the Luxco web site, they admit Yellowstone is one of their brands, but that's all they say. I don't know whose bourbon it is, but it's got to be the worst bourbon that distillery makes. Really bad. They sell a Yellowstone blend too. It can't be any worse.

    So, good luck with that.

    Trash

    What do you expect for a dusty $11 bottle. I dumped it in a bottle I keep mixing up with leftovers. A little went down the drain.

    Hey to all! Good to see some things never change.

    I picked up a dusty bottle from the late 80's/early 90's (as I recall) a couple of years ago in Monterey, California. I seem to remember that it was pretty good. That wouldn't be surprising, since that would have been during the glut.

    I guess if I picked up dusties very often I would keep notes. As it is, my unreliable memory will have to do.
