Our Bourbon Of The Month

  • BOTM 8/18: Bulleit Bourbon July 31, 2018
    Yeah, I'm early for a change. Every once in a while.......   I couldn't believe it's been over 10 years since this was the BOTM. So....... here we go.    Much has changed with Bulleit in the last couple of years or so.  Four Roses is no longer in the picture, and speculation has it that BF and/or […]

History

  • Kentucky Owl - Bardstown, KY March 10, 2019
    This is the site of Stoli Group's Kentucky Owl distillery project, looking east at 1,000 feet. Today, it is a quarry of about 600 acres with three low areas that have been mined down at least 100 feet. The low areas will be water features when they fill up. The road crossing the quarry is […]
  • Barton's Tom Moore 1792 March 8, 2019
    I took this picture a few weeks ago before the mash tank spilled across the parking lot. The old New Haven Turnpike runs through the distillery. The turnpike was closed and Barton bought it in 1933 when the old wooden covered bridge across the Beech Fork River collapsed. The State built a new bridge on […]

  • Sku talks blended bourbon and whiskey March 22, 2019
    This is really good. Sku lays out numerous scenarios for legal blends and some of them will surprise you.   https://spiritsjournal.klwines.com/klwinescom-spirits-blog/2019/3/11/american-blends
  • So..How much would you pay? March 22, 2019
    I really like the Topic on "What Bourbon have you passed on".  I would like to know from everybody who hunts, what would you pay?  I see the BTAC and Pappy every week at crazy prices and its easy to pass on stuff like GTS @ 450+, but I am sure everybody have been tempted at over […]
  • Whiskey in Costa Rica? March 21, 2019
    Has anyone been to Costa Rica lately? I’m heading there next week and am wondering if I’ll need to bring bottles with me or if we will be able to find anything there. I hate putting whiskey in checked bags so I’m thinking I might need to just buy some at the duty free so […]
  • What is this? March 21, 2019
    Registered one of my AECS bottles back in December and they sent this to me.  Is there a utility for this thing?  I was thinking a stand for the bottle but the recess is too large.

  • How do you all acquire these bottles? March 10, 2019
    Serious question.  How does one go about getting a BTAC or PVW or any other rare and hard to find bottle?   Zero chance of finding one on the shelf at retail or something close so am I relegated to the secondary market or paying the ungodly amounts that any given LS would be charging?  […]
