Our Bourbon Of The Month

  • BOTM 2/18: Jim Beam Distiller's Cut February 1, 2018
    Well whadaya know? We have something new and different for this month's BOTM, and  I'm actually early for a change.  Truth be told, I bought a bottle of this a few weeks ago, and I've had it all lined up and ready to go.    Even after reading what some folks have said about this one, I have to say […]

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 […]

  • How's Wild Turkey Kentucky Spirit these days? April 21, 2018
    For the first time ever I saw WTKS on a shelf in an NC ABC store this week. Looks like it was bottle of the month a while ago, but I was wondering what people think of recent releases? I am generally a fan of WT including WT101 but have never had WTKS. Thanks!
  • I am my own grandpa April 21, 2018
    Oh, wait I mean, I'm drinking Old Grand Dad BIB.
  • SKU on MGP April 20, 2018
    http://spiritsjournal.klwines.com/klwinescom-spirits-blog/2018/4/17/the-new-mgp-whiskeys.html     Enjoyed this article by SKU (and glad to see him writing again). I am a fan of the MGP 75-21-4 mashbill that Smooth Ambler and Belle Meade utilized for a lot of their single barrel picks but I must confess I stayed away from sourced stuff initially based on faulty ‘well that […]
  • ABV Cheat sheet April 18, 2018
    I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, but I created an excel sheet to figure out how much alcohol various pours of different proof Bourbon have. I've included beer and wine too, as my wife drinks a lot of beer and I thought it was interesting with some of the high […]

    16 years old, Barrel proof.    Hold on to your wallets!
  • Larceny Barrel Proof April 13, 2018
    As someone who was never able to purchase OF BIB in my state if it was sacrificed for this I'm good, another of SKU's Recent Tweets: https://www.ttbonline.gov/colasonline/viewColaDetails.do?action=publicFormDisplay&ttbid=18096001000513
  • WT LongBranch April 11, 2018
    What are everyone's thoughts on the new Wild Turkey release, Longbranch? 8 yr Age Statement and filtered through Mesquite and Oak Charcoal for around $40. I'm anxious to try it.
  • Wilderness Trail release later this month April 10, 2018
    http://wildernesstraildistillery.com/events/   Going to need one y’all KY guys to hook me up.    Have been excited about this since hearing about their distillery (and different approach) on the bourbon pursuit podcast. Hope some SBers can give is the low down. I look forward to this release and hope it makes an appearance in South […]
  • Old Fitz BIB limited releases starting April 2018 April 10, 2018
    The HH press release is here - https://heavenhill.com/detail/302   IIRC, lots of us figured Old Fitz was being cannibalized to launch Larceny, and the Old Fitz offerings sort of dwindled away around here.  According to an email I got this AM, HH will be resurrecting Old Fitz BIB with semiannual releases.  It will be in […]
