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

  • 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 […]

    To see this!     Taken in the stockroom of the liquor store I help out in.  And the best part is that more is on the way!
  • What to do with "Bad" Bourbon? August 7, 2018
    First of all, when I say "bad" I don't mean something you don't enjoy, however, maybe it just isn't agreeing with you at the moment.   I figured I would ask this as the palette can change quite often.  I found this to be the case last night, I went for a glass of OF […]
  • Four Opinionated people talk bourbon August 5, 2018
    Garden and Gun is a uniquely Southern US flavored magazine with a sophisticated set of style and tastes. I don't subscribe but if an article from the publication shows up online I'll read it or if I see a copy in a waiting room, I'll take the time to look through the pages.  This article […]
  • Lottery July 31, 2018
    A little early but the local guy was already talking about November in his store this week. What are you looking for in lotteries this fall out of this years selections? Booker's 30? RR2002? EHT 4G? HH27? Double Eagle 20?

    In PA on vacation and noticed this on the PA Liquor Website:  
  • Little Book Batch Two July 26, 2018
    https://thewhiskeywash.com/whiskey-styles/american-whiskey/freddie-noes-little-book-whiskey-goes-north-second-release/?utm_source=The+Whiskey+Wash+Newsletter&utm_campaign=4843229ffe-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2018_07_24_09_47&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_20c25ccf55-4843229ffe-154269265   Two Canadian whiskeys and a Kentucky Rye.  For some reason, I get the feeling that Corporate has their hands in this.  B-S has plenty of Canadian in their portfolio, otherwise I don't get the reason for this from a old school Kentucky Bourbon family member.  Either B-S is pushing to diversify between labels, or […]
  • FRLESmB 2018 July 19, 2018
    Four Roses announced this year’s LE small batch (“130th anniversary”). It’ll consist of a 13yo OBSF, 10yo OBSV, 15yo OESV, and a 17yo OESK.   https://fourrosesbourbon.com/brents-pick-130th-anniversary-limited-edition-small-batch/   Im a big fan of well aged FR bourbon so I’ll be hunting for this one. It’s interesting, though, that none of the palate flavor descriptors are sugar-based - there’s usually some […]
  • 4R OBSV BS July 12, 2018
    Question, I'm looking for opinions on this scenario. If you were given a choice of a 4R OBSV barrel strength at 62.5% and 8 yrs, 11 months or an OBSV barrel strength of 51.7% and 11 years which would you choose, if given a choice of only one? One obviously from up high in the rickhouse and […]
  • PHC Orange Curacao Barrel Finish July 10, 2018
    I don't remember seeing a thread about this years PHC release, which to those who are not aware is an 8-9 year old bourbon finished in Orange Curacao Casks and bottled at 110 proof. I'm less than excited for this one however interestingly I believe retail on this is lower than the last few at […]
