Bourbon Air Tours

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.

We will pour a wee dram this evening and let you know. We arrived late and sampling was closed, so we didn't get any while we were there. Out in the parking lot, we spoke with a few folks that had a sample and the said it had a very smooth and mellow mouthfeel. They said that it didn't taste like any of the others that they sampled. The added that they were told it had an extra year in the barrel. Stay tuned. If it is any good, I may bring one of the two I bought to the sampler as it is just down the rod from my farm.

Mission accomplished. SWMBO and I took a sip and were pleased with the outcome. Now, at the moment I am slowly recovering from a respiratory infection, so my taste buds are slightly out of kilter so it will take several more trials before the complete and accurate verdict is in. I do agree with the 'parking lot people' in that it does not taste like any other 4R product. It is very gentle on the pallet with a slight taste of cinnamon that edges away after a few moments. The nose was pleasant tonight, but I could probably say the same sniffing paint remover. There is little to no woodiness from the extra year in the barrel. My schnozzola is injured and in need of repair, so I will crank out a second opinion as soon as I can actually use my sniffer.  Although I lean toward wheated bourbon, it is a worthy addition to my bunker.

 

I think I will try some old fashioned home remedy to speed up the healing. My nephew dropped off a Mason jar from another of his uncles this afternoon. <emoji>Super Big Grin with BIG eyes</emoji>

Haven’t seen a follow up to this post, and I don’t think we got to meet you at the April Sampler like you had discussed. I hope everything is OK in your world.

Is anyone else keen on the Small Batch Select? 
Thoughts? 

In my area, they run about $10 more than single barrel & $10-20 less that single barrel BP private selections.

As I said last April at the Sampler, "Me likee!"  Not all were impressed at $59.99 + tax from the distillery but the Lexington TW and local Bardstown Kroger's had them for $51.99 and $53.99 IIRC.   So I muled a couple of cases back up north (we drove, long story) to distribute to fellow SBers and L&K folx.  Think they liked them a lot, too.   😊

 

But we still haven't seen them on the shelves up here in New England . . . . . . . . .    😡
