Sonoma West Of Kentucky Bourbon 3 Review

Sonoma West Of Kentucky Bourbon 3 Review

For the Sonoma West Of Kentucky Bourbon 3 we switch gears from wheat as the flavor grain back to the more traditional rye which they’ve amped up to being a “high-rye” mashbill. Just how high is that rye? I dunno, it’s not listed so who’s to say… besides them that is. In Sonoma County Distilling’s… Continue!

David Nicholson Bonded Review

David Nicholson Bonded Review

David Nicholson Bonded is no longer available as a brand, but back in the 00’s, where the bottle this sample came from, it was the David Nicholson 1843 and carried the Bottled-In-Bond note on its label. The brand got an overhaul at some point in the not-too-distant past and the BiB designation was dropped, but… Continue!

Sonoma West of Kentucky Bourbon 2 Review

Sonoma West of Kentucky Bourbon 2 Review

  Sonoma West of Kentucky Bourbon 2 is the wheated mashbill bourbon from Sonoma County Distilling Company. Aged in small barrels for a short period of time it carries that “Craft Whiskey” profile stronger than most young craft whiskeys I’ve had to-date which we’ll get into more in the review below, but first a word… Continue!

Old Whiskey River Review

Old Whiskey River Review

This interesting little bottle of Old Whiskey River was found by a buddy on a dusty hunting trip and opened a few weeks later when we sat down to play some board games and enjoy some of our dusty finds. The brand is still around today, but it’s not easily found in Hollywood so I… Continue!

Orphan Barrel Rhetoric 23 Review

Orphan Barrel Rhetoric 23 Review

Orphan Barrel Rhetoric 23 is stop number 4 on Rhetoric’s climb to 25. Another year older and another year… oakier. Which is biggest difference I noticed between this and the 22. They both have similar profiles, just this one is a bit oaken and drier and it’s the first release of the Rhetorics where I’ve… Continue!

Wyoming Whiskey Eclipse Review

Wyoming Whiskey Eclipse Review

Wyoming Whiskey Eclipse is a limited edition that was only available at the distillery. Luckily I know someone at the distillery who was kind enough to send me a sample so I could give it a taste. Made from a smaller batch than normal I was most interested to see how this compared to the… Continue!

Bulleit Bourbon Barrel Strength Review

Bulleit Bourbon Barrel Strength Review

Bulleit Bourbon Barrel Strength started as a KY only release focused on the on-premise market and with its success it’s expanded beyond the bar and into the home… namely my home. Which is where I tasted this sample of mystery whiskey and I have to say… I like it. They should make this a regular… Continue!

Early Times Bottled In Bond Review

Early Times Bottled In Bond Review

Early Times Bottled In Bond is a new, affordable, release from Brown-Forman and no it’s not the same recipe as Old Forester. They’re close, but Early Times uses a different ratio of grains to give it a bit of a differentiator. Often known as a bottom-shelf-brand it’s about time Early Times gets some love from… Continue!

Corn Nuts: Wheated Bourbon Tasting

Corn Nuts: Wheated Bourbon Tasting

The weekend before we celebrated the independence of our nation the Malt Nuts ditched the malt and adopted a corn focused mentality. In honor of the country we call home we eschewed the imports and gathered a lineup of America’s Native Spirit, but being the kind of folks we are it wasn’t just any old… Continue!
