Our Bourbon Of The Month

  • BOTM 5/18: Early Times Bottled In Bond April 30, 2018
    We're back!    I was finally able to grab a couple of bottles of this, so this time around I have some notes.   The legs are medium, to slightly thick and take their time coming down the glass. The nose is a bit odd, but nothing off putting. I can pick up a bunch of things. At first smell there's […]

History

  • Whiskeydaddlers April 20, 2018
    http://whiskeydaddle.com/thenovel/   Doing some research into the Peoria area distillery history and ran into this.  Apologize if this is already out there, but I did not see anything when I searched. New piece of Distillery History for me.  Hope you feel the same. 
  • Old Crow Distillery April 10, 2018
    Vosgar, Gavin0791 and I went on a three day, whirlwind trip to the motherland. This was to participate in a barrel pick at BT, along with giving my nephew Mike, aka Galvin0791 an introduction to the bourbon world. We had a great time. Along with seeing the "new" at BT, we got to experience some of the […]

  • O.K.I. in Ohio? May 21, 2018
    Hoping someone can help me out...I have a business trip to Columbus, OH this week and I'm wondering if anyone knows if O.K.I. is still around anywhere? I had heard it might be running out right around this time? I'll have a little extra time to hit up the surrounding areas of Columbus if necessary. […]
  • Bourbon book May 20, 2018
    Wondering if anyone can recommend a good book on the history of bourbon.  Checked out a couple on Amazon, but was looking to get ideas from those of you here on the forum.  Thanks.
  • Advice for Napa/San Francisco trip May 19, 2018
    Heading far west this week for the first time with some time in Napa and San Francisco. Any recommendations for whiskey bars/restaurants or liquor stores I need to stop by.
  • Interesting new Barrell Infinite product May 17, 2018
    Apologies in advance if this topic has already been discussed but I just came across an interesting new soldera-ish product from Barrell. I generally find Barrell to be one of the NDPs I’m OK with. I’ve bought some, tasted many, and think a lot of the products are pretty good, with good info available and my […]

  • Difference in Elmer and Blantons May 18, 2018
    I know they are both single barrel of the BT #2 mashbill. Bourbonr says Blantons is 6-8 years and ETL is 12-14.    If those ages are correct, you would expect the MSRP's to be flipped. In NC they must be sold by MSRP and it was $39 for ETL yesterday and in the $50's […]
  • Wild Turkey Revival May 16, 2018
    Masters Keep Revival. 12-15 year old, 101 proof, finished in Oloroso sherry casks.    I’m in. Though I’d rather have 12-15 year old 101, hold the finish.

  • Four Roses Limited Edition April 29, 2018
    Yesterday I saw a 2017 Four Roses Limited Edition Small Batch for $179.99. I’m a big fan of the FRSB, but the FRSmB left something to be desired. All of the reviews that I’ve read have been glowing for the LE, but I’ve never come close to paying that much for a bourbon, and I’m very […]
  • Abraham Bowman Sweet XVI April 25, 2018
    So A Smith Bowman is releasing the next Abraham Bowman (Release 17) this Saturday at 10 am.  It's a 16 year old 116 proof bourbon for $69.99.  Anyone from the DMV planning on being there?
