Michter’s Bourbon 20 Years Review

Michter’s Bourbon 20 Years Review

Michter’s Bourbon 20 Years is one of their ultra-premium releases and fetches insane on the primary market and ludicrous prices on the secondary market. Like everything else they do it’s sourced and they skirt the disclosure line when they talk about it. In Michter’s Words: Michter’s Bourbon 20 Years “While we regularly sample all our… Continue!

Michter’s Bourbon 10 Years Review

Michter’s Bourbon 10 Years Review

Michter’s Bourbon 10 Years is in a scenario similar to the Michter’s Rye 10 Years in that it’s not made by Michter’s just bottled by them. Like the rye though we can easily assume it’s from either Indiana or Kentucky for whiskey that old and being a single barrel it’s possible different releases come from… Continue!

Trail’s End Bourbon Review

Trail’s End Bourbon Review

Trail’s End Bourbon is a sourced bourbon that’s finished in Oregon Oak and cut with “glacier-fed spring water from Mt. Hood”. The sourcing is fully disclosed, so no issues there, but as always the question is who did they source it from? The two biggest distilleries to source from in KY are Heaven Hill and… Continue!

Yellowstone 2017 Limited Edition Review

Yellowstone 2017 Limited Edition Review

Yellowstone 2017 Limited Edition bourbon whiskey is a significant milestone for the Limestone Branch distillery because it’s the first time the Beams have been able to include some of their own whiskey in the mix. It also happens to be my favorite batch they’ve produced so far… favorite by a long shot. In Limetsone Branch’s… Continue!

Angels Envy Cask Strength Review

Angels Envy Cask Strength Review

Angels Envy Cask Strength 2017 edition is an uncut bourbon finished in California port barrels. Angel’s Envy has long been thought to source from Brown-Forman, but I’ve recently read several statements from people in the company that say their whiskey is sourced from multiple sources. Meaning they get their whiskey where they can and that… Continue!

Redemption 9 Year Barrel Proof Bourbon Review

Redemption 9 Year Barrel Proof Bourbon Review

Redemption 9 Year Barrel Proof Bourbon is a sourced MGP whiskey that’s been aged for 9 years and bottled at full cask strength / barrel proof. That means there’s been no water added and it’s in its most unfiltered and unadulterated state outside of sticking your glass straight into the barrel. In Redemptions’s Words: Redemption… Continue!

Bedtime Bourbon Review

Bedtime Bourbon Review

Bedtime Bourbon is a sourced whiskey who is straight up about that and doesn’t even attempt to hide it, which is awesome. No shitty backstory, no overwrought theatrics, not deception, no stupid stories, just good sourced whiskey bottled and served. The only thing they could do to make this better would be to offer it… Continue!

Four Roses Elliot’s Select 2016 Review

Four Roses Elliot’s Select 2016 Review

Four Roses Elliot’s Select 2016 was Brent Elliot’s first release as Four Roses Master Distiller after taking on the title in 2015. While the departing of the much beloved Jim Rutledge was shrouded in a bit of confusion and a touch of controversy, Brent did his best to do the thing he was hired to… Continue!

1990s Old Grand-Dad 86 proof Review

1990s Old Grand-Dad 86 proof Review

1990s Old Grand-Dad 86 proof completes the “recent” trinity of 86 proof OGD. I’ve had 1980s Nation Distillers OGD 86, I’ve had early 2000s Beam OGD 86 and now I’m tasting and reviewing the 90s stuff. Beam acquired OGD in ’87 when they acquired National Distillers and since this is from the 90s it’s most… Continue!

Wild Turkey 8 years Review

Wild Turkey 8 years Review

Wild Turkey 8 years 101 is the older version of the much beloved Wild Turkey 101 from back when it carried an age-statement; this particular bottle is an 80s Japanese export. This whiskey was also distilled at the old distillery on the old equipment which imparted some different flavors and aromas to it than what… Continue!
