So, what are your thoughts about the NDP's and so on.
 
Go get em Fred.
We’re in weird times. There’s a growing consumer acceptance of sourced whiskey and the Non-Distiller Producers who create them. The class-action lawsuits regarding state-of-distillation and misleading consumers are largely over. (Tito’s recently won its case.) Mike Veach and I have offered historical evidence about the sourced whiskey genre, while Chuck Cowdery dismantles contemporary versions one …

Personally I don't care as long as it tastes good and remains consistent from batch to batch. I'm more into rums than whiskeys but the same things are done there. Sometimes the result is good, and sometimes not so much :)

Tasty. Expensive too, but I really love these.
It’s no surprise that I like to try new things. Like today, I tried both acupuncture and massage therapy for the first time. One of them seems to have worked to ease a pain in my neck. But in either case it was an interesting experience. But we can’t just plow forward into the great unknown all the time. Sometimes we need to stop and take stock of where we’ve been. And since I’ve been exploring some of the Willett brands lately and ...

I love Wild Turkey, but I'd probably buy Rare Breed or even 101 over this.
This week I found myself on a different side of the bourbon zeitgeist than usual. What I thought was good and interesting was viewed by many as controversial and in poor taste. I had people I respect tell me they disagreed with me. I had people I don't respect (or even know) call me out and to tell me how wrong I was to donate to a cause I believe in. But here's the thing, I really don't let what others think inform what I think is go...

I'm sure you've heard by now, but Jim Rutledge is opening his own distillery. And you can help him build it.
Me posing for a photo with Jim Rutledge at the Kentucky Bourbon Festival, 2012 These days, there are very few people in the bourbon industry that I would stand in line to meet. For the most part, if I happen across someone, I'll chat and see if I can't pick up a tidbit here or there, pass along a complement, etc. But it’s doubtful I’ll stand in line to do so. See, unlike most of the people who live in Minnesota*, I really hate lines...

Willett sells some really good bourbon...and some that isn't so good. This one was good enough for what it is.
For some reason or another, I've never really tried a lot of the non-single barrel, non-"Willett Family Estate Bottled" products put out by Willett. It's not like I don't like Willett. I like them quite a bit. I've gone on record as stating that you should go into the gift shop with a budget, buy the most expensive one that is within that budget and you will never regret that purchase. And I've had a glass of the Willett Pot Still here ...

What's a good bourbon made only from corn? Looking for something made from entirely gluten-free sources

These guys started a bourbon tasting bracket (like the NCAA tournament for neat bourbons). I'm going to have to give this a try, though I might not use the bottom shelf brands...
In honor of March Madness, we here at the Gentleman Hack thought it would be a fantastic idea to do a crazy bourbon tournament of our own. So it is our

Found some full, sealed minis while antiquing. Being a wild Turkey fan boy, this is the one I was most excited to try.
A few weeks ago I ran across something a little too good to pass up. I was out antiquing and found a seller who had a bunch of miniature liquor bottles for sale. Full bottles. They were only available as a set so I took the entire lot. Out of that lot I got three bourbons of varying antiquity. A early 1970s IW Harper, a Blanton’s (can’t be older than the early-mid 1980s when the brand debuted) and the one I was most excited about a Wild...

BMH is by far my favorite here and one of the best boubons ever.
