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 […]
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.
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 […]

I'm trying to hunt down some history on the old "Cock of the Walk" 15yr japan export bourbon (red wax top) like when/where was it sourced, bottled, etc. I originally heard it was connected with HH but they said it wasn't theirs so my hunt continues.
