    Re: request for help with this noble undertaking - my Bourbon Map

    You might find the database to Cecil's book that I did handy to locate and name distilleries. It was meant as a companion, but it may be of use without the book.

    You can download it here . Please note the database is on the second sheet, accessed via the tabs at the bottom.

    A typically generous gesture from a person very connected to the traditions of bourbon whiskey, thanks, Bettye Jo.

    I was interested to note an oil derrick or two on the map and wonder if oil is still extracted today in Kentucky.

    Gary,

    I think the "Kentucky oil" is added to Jim Beam Rye as a texture enhancer.

    Re: request for help with this noble undertaking - my Bourbon Map

    Yes, you can look at it that way. A number of bourbons, too, have a touch of (corn) oil in the palate and this can improve the taste - and body - unless the oiliness is too strong.

    I'm no authority on this but I believe the last new wells were drilled in the 1960s.

    Actally, they still drill for oil around here. The one that comes to mind is in a corn field near Sonora

    I'd like to see one of those old derricks in Kentucky! I wonder if there is any exploration still being done there.

    Re: request for help with this noble undertaking - my Bourbon Map

    I was surprised when I first started driving around the Midwest how many small oil wells there are. Southern Illinois has them scattered about. I don't recall seeing any in Kentucky, but it wouldn't surprise me.

    You know those novelty drinking birds that sit beside a glass of water and keep dipping down to drink? That's what most of these oil rigs look like, only much larger, and with giant counterweights instead of the glass bulb at the bottom.

    Check out Wikimapia:
    http://www.wikimapia.org/beta/#lat=3...0&m=w&tag=7369

    This has a bunch on the map, and the cool part is...since it's a wiki...any of you guys can add to it. Just make sure to add the "distillery" tag to the site.
