New Kirkland (Costco) Tennessee Whiskey

Recommended Posts

Paddy

I gave this a whirl tonight and my conclusion is... if it ain't Dickel, it's sure doing a hell of a good impersonation.  :)

 

I'll also add that I enjoyed it.  Sure, it's a bit thinnish on the mouthfeel, but very full flavored, with a warming, lengthy finish.  @ 7 years, 103 proof and $29 per liter, we could do much worse.  IMO, much better QPR than the Dickel BP's out there.... 

 

Admittedly, I did not do a SBS with an actual Dickel BP bottle, but my impression is that this would stand up pretty well with it in a head to head.

The thing that is so humorous to me about this Tennessee Bourbon is that no one in Tennessee will ever be able to buy it in Tennessee! Liquor can only be sold in liquor stores in Tennessee, and I doubt this would be sold outside of Costco sores. A recent TN law change in July finally allows wine to be sold in grocery stores, so our Costco stores now carry wine, but I doubt we will ever see liquor in grocery stores.

I was just at costco this past weekend and saw it there too, was wondering what was up with that

Try it.  You will be presently surprised.  Especially true in a straight up taste test against Knob Creek 100 proof.

I can't remember the last time I checked in here. However, upon seeing a new offering at my local Costco I decided to check in. I think I will give the Kirkland seven-year-old Tennessee straight bourbon whiskey a try. Is there anyone around who still remembers me?

SO!  Have you given it a shot?  Some of us are sitting here with baited breath awaiting a review.  Finally found a Costco in Laurel MD in spite of my crappy GPS that carries it, but it's a 45 minute drive.  Worthwhile?

I occasionally lament about the lack of variety at my local Costco.  They didn't have any of their own brand of bourbon my last two visits.  Not even an empty spot on the shelf where it is supposed to go.

To me, that is the way Costco is with almost everything. You find something, try it, like it, and when you go back, they don't carry it anymore.

Tim, I spent some time in Pelham last year and couldn't find a liquor store if my life depended on it.  Lots of wine at Wal-Mart, though. I was working odd hours.  One of my friends was there for the Def Leppard concert.  We got off so late that I didn't feel comfortable scouting around Birmingham since I didn't know my way around very well.  I find a nice watering hole (Mexican food) by my hotel.

Yes, the Alabama ABC stores are fairly inconspicuous; you could pass right by one and not even know it. They close fairly early, too (around 9 PM, I think).

 

There are some private stores that sell liquor at high markups from the already high ABC prices. But I agree, it is pretty hit or miss to find one.

 

Sorry, but this is the Bible Belt, and liquor is pretty widely frowned upon.

Hello all am new here. Found this because I was searching about tenn. Distillery. I was there today in columbia tn. I found out what i could and man are they tight lipped there. I did find that tgey dont have their own brand/product but package it for sale to australia and obviously costco. They wouldnt say where the whiskey comes from but a jim beam truck was seen pulling in there. They have 2 barrel houses and a warehouse with a bunch of new barrels and stainless silos. They just built another warehouse and are planning more in the next year.  They definitely do something there as u can smell the mash. Anyway i collect whiskey and i drink a bit of it too lol. Look forward to reading and learning from you all. Thanks in advance
