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 […]

  • Are we becoming accustomed to inferior whiskey ? October 20, 2018
    It probably started a decade ago, maybe longer.  When did Wild Turkey lose the 8 year designation ?  When was it that Bookers and Evan Williams slipped from 9 years to seven or even six.  We know when Elijah Craig went NAS along with Knob Creek.  KBD with their Rowans and Noah's did the same.  […]
  • Four Roses October 17, 2018
    I'm still fairly new to all bourbon not named Maker's Mark. I really want to try the 4R single barrel but am still a little confused about it. I've seen 1 store pick (OBSV) and everything else is just the normal single barrel. If it isn't a store pick, are there 8 different offerings of […]
  • Stagg Jr. batch 11 October 14, 2018
    Has anyone seen Stagg Jr. batch 11 yet?  If so, what proof is it?  It's been about six months or more since batch 10 came out so it should be about time.  I couldn't find any batch info on the BT web site. 
  • 2018 Angel's Envy Cask Strength October 11, 2018
    Anybody tried this stuff yet?  It just showed up on our local shelves.

    Well still 80 proof but looks like the next BH is a 10 year bourbon https://www.ttbonline.gov/colasonline/viewColaDetails.do?action=publicFormDisplay&ttbid=18234001000093
  • Kentucky Owl Bourbon Batch 8 October 4, 2018
    Anyone tried this yet?  What are your thoughts on the taste, nose, and finish?
  • An fun afternoon of cask analysis..... September 8, 2018
    Hey Fellas,    I sure hope this doesn't come off as shameless self-promotion, or shameless promotion for a few of the brands I blend for, but at any rate, I'm just wrapping up a very fun afternoon of doing some finishing cask analysis for what will become batches #10, 11, 12, 13, and 14 of Jos. Magnus Cigar […]
