I found this 1980s Daviess County Blended Whiskey on a dusty hunt and since I’d never had it, and it was only $10, I picked it up; after opening it I wish I hadn’t. Made at the original Medley Distillery in Kentucky this brand, like most of their other brands, all but disappeared after Diageo… Continue!
G.R. Sharpe Old Style Whiskey is a pre-prohibition whiskey distilled by the Harry Wilken Distillery who started up during the whiskey expansion of the early 20th century and was condemned to death, like so many others, by prohibition. Only living from 1906 – 1919 this little distillery didn’t have much of a chance to show what… Continue!
High West Bourye Limited Sighting is the 2017 edition of High West’s Bourye whiskey which combines bourbon and rye – hence the name. Based on the bottle code breakdown I laid out in the Bourye 2015 release review we know this particular bottle of the Bourye Limited Sighting was bottled on the 9th of January… Continue!
I picked up this High West Bourye 2015 Release early last year and kept meaning to do a SBS between it and the original Bourye batch 2 I have, but just never got around to it. Then the good folks at High West reached out and sent me a bottle of the 2017 batch (reviewing… Continue!

Wyoming Whiskey Outryder is WW’s newest expression and it’s a combination of two different mashbills. The first one doesn’t meet the TTB requirements to be called either a rye or a bourbon so if bottled on its own it would be either an “American Whiskey” or a “Wyoming Whiskey”. The second is a bourbon and… Continue!
Beam’s Eight Star is not available in California, it’s something I picked up for a few bucks while out traveling through bourbon country and thought would be fun to review. Yes I knew it was going to be terrible before I even handle the guy a $5 and got $2 back, but that didn’t dissuade… Continue!
High West Valley Tan Batch 3 marks something new, a departure from what was released as batch 2 of the High West Valley Tan Whiskey. Batch 2 was a labeled as a Utah Oat Whiskey, but batch 3 has dropped the oat part and is now labeled as a Utah Whiskey, but that’s not the… Continue!
Still 630 SS Sorghum Whiskey is made from 100% Sorghum and was the whiskey that impressed me the most when I recently toured the St.Louis distillery. A distillery, by the way, that I was thoroughly impressed with after talking to the owner David Weglarz. Listening to his passion and his thought process behind making his… Continue!
As far as I know the Bourbon Crusaders Charbay is only the second private barrel of Charbay that’s been released. The first one being the now legendary LAWS Charbay which I tried recently and was suitably impressed with what ended up in my glass that evening. To say theBourbon Crusaders Charbay was on that level is… Continue!
