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

  • Prohibition bottle found. Need info! April 23, 2019
    Hi,   We found this prohibition era bottle of rye when cleaning out my parents house. I couldn’t find any information about it online so I figured I would ask the experts and see if anyone on the forum knows anything further about it. Unopened.    Thank you in advance. 
  • 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 […]

  • What Bourbon Are You Drinking? (Summer 2019) June 21, 2019
    It's summer!  Time to put those bottles in the freezer and drink it cold (if that's your cup of tea, I mean bourbon).   Last night while watching my Louisville Cardinals come from behind to beat Miss. St. I enjoyed a pour of Jim Beam Distiller's Cut.  Actually I was so nervous I had to […]

  • Elijah Craig 12 year Small Batch June 13, 2019
    Hopefully I'm in the right section for this post. If not, all apologies.   I have read over and over that EC 12 year isn't be produced with a 12 year age statement any longer. On Kentucky Derby Eve, I was told that a local Kroger had Elijah Craig 12 year old small batch for […]

  • Belle Meade 12 States June 7, 2019
    What states/cities got Belle Meade 12. I'm definitely not gonna chase these but a buddy found a bunch sitting on a shelf today and it got me thinking what cities or states got these bottles last fall.  Ive seen Nashville, Chattanooga, Illinois, Wisconsin (I think), Missouri
  • Four Roses SBS April 18, 2019
    I bought a couple of mini-mules and a couple of shot glasses today.  Oh - a couple of bottles of Small Batch Select as well. $60 each at the aging and bottling plant's visitor center.
  • Kentucky Owl Confiscated April 16, 2019
    http://www.gobourbon.com/new-kentucky-owl-confiscated-will-be-brands-first-nationwide-release/   I know that it seems that a lot of those in this community seem to hate Kentucky Owl, but this bottle does seem interesting to me, although overpriced.  I’ve really enjoyed the Batch 1 Rye, and their batch 7 and 8 bourbons.  This one isn’t Barrel Proof, which is a little disappointing, but […]
