I like Old Grand-Dad, but had never had the opportunity to compare them head to head before this.
Sometimes circumstances beyond your control put you in a position where you realize: “Hey, I’ve got bottles of three different styles of Old Grand-Dad open.” Now I know what you’re thinking. “Eric, you’ve limited yourself to enough room for 22 open bottles of American whiskey, why would you have three different styles of Old Grand-Dad open?” Or at least you would be asking that if this were a local radio commercial. I feel sorry f...

Don't feel like getting dad bourbon for fathers' day? (what's wrong with you?) Maybe an accessory or some glasses?
It's almost Father's Day. And, if you're like me, you're thinking to yourself: "oh shit! I forgot to get my dad something!" Now my dad is a brandy drinker so I am planning to just spend some time with him this weekend and hope I don't come off as cheap. But if your dad is a bourbon fan, the easy answer is that you could always buy him...well...bourbon. Of course, it's entirely possible that you are looking for something a little less...

Ray asks a question we all asked when we first started with bourbon: "Where are you guys finding all these flavors?"
A few days ago I got a question from Ray about tasting bourbon. I found your site and have been reading your blog posts about tasting different bourbons. I'm just getting started out on trying different bourbons and was wondering if you have any tips on how to do a tasting.  I almost always just taste the alcohol and can rarely detect any of the different flavors you list on reviews. I've read up on it and put so...

Tom asks: how can a bourbon be over 125 proof when it has to go into the barrel under that?
A few days ago, I got an email from Tom asking about barrel proof. Hi Arok...... I need a little clarification. I just received a bottle of "Booker’s” in a nice box, as a gift. The label says single barrel 127 proof. It aroused my curiosity. Then I read that Garrison Brothers have a new release "Cowboy Bourbon" @ 134 proof (not for the faint of heart)....! I thought to be "Bourbon.” whiskey had comply with certai...

Better than Rebel Yell bourbon in that it is drinkable. Not great though and I might pass if the price feels high.
This is the second part of a two part post. The first being the story of how I got the bottle and a reminder that you don’t know what’s in a bottle of whiskey until you open it and take a taste. Well. I’ve spent two weeks with this whiskey. It’s half gone and now I think I can talk about it. I’ve turned the bottle over and over in my hands looking at what is said and what is not said on the label. And I noticed a few things. *...

Good whiskey for a good price. Don't need to break the bank for an age stated rye.
The first time I had this whiskey was on my first visit to the Wild Turkey Distillery during my first visit to Kentucky. That’s a lot of firsts to pack into one whiskey. I think back on that visit fondly. It was back when I could visit a major distillery and have samples that I hadn’t tasted before (because I hadn’t tasted that many yet). I’ve been on the Wild Turkey tour a couple more times since and I always make sure I grab a sampl...

If it were your last $100 to spend on bourbon, how would you go?
Occasionally life throws you a curveball. Last week I was laid off from my job. Don’t feel too bad for me though. I’d been thinking of trying my hand at going freelance for a while anyway. Now, I get the chance. One downside of suddenly finding yourself self-employed is that I will have to watch my bourbon spending for a while until I know for sure how things are going to go. With that in mind, I was reminded of a topic that a lot of ...

A tasty finished rye that tastes nothing like it's major ingredient.
Every morning my dog, Whiskey, begs for her morning treats. She will sit nicely, take the treat from you, run into the living room, set it down and come back for the next one. She does this twice as she gets two treats every morning.  If it is the weekend, she will eat them right away while we eat our breakfast. On work days she does something a little odd. She leaves them on the floor until we get home. Once we get the running aroun...

Three words for bourbon enthusiasts: Buy this book
Shortest review ever: buy this book. Can I say more? Of course. I can always say more. Do I need to? Not really. I’ve read a lot of books about bourbon. I’ve got a shelf full of them. Some are fantastic. A couple are really, really bad. Some just spit out the same marketing myths you’ve heard over and over. Some have amazing amounts of original research. Some of them are interesting, but dry. Others are entertaining, but empty of rea...

This is a fairly inexpensive bourbon, reminds me of a cross between Jack and Evan. Mellow doesn't begin to describe it. Website says it's "Kentucky Straight Bourbon," bottle says "bourbon" I trust the bottle.
It’s coming up on Father’s Day and I’m reminded of something that my step-father did on one of the many trips my wife and I took to the cabin to spend a holiday with he and my mom. My step-father is a Jack drinker. He has been for longer than I’ve been alive. He likes a good bourbon, Basil Hayden was an appreciated treat one year for Christmas, but Jack is his go to. Jack on the rocks to be specific.  Well, knowing that my wife an...

I think it's rather drinkable at the price point.

It gave me an excuse to take a pretty picture, but I don't know that I'd put it in my mouth again.
It’s summer and to some of us in the bourbon world, that means it’s also Julep Season. My wife is a big fan of the mint julep. It carries all the lovely flavors of a good bourbon and adds in some sweetness and delicate mint. I normally take my julep without the mint, sugar, julep cup or most of the ice when I make one for her but I can be persuaded on a particularly hot day to partake. But sometimes making a julep can be a bit too mu...

Sounds tasty. My wife likes hers a bit sweeter so I had to go heavier on the sweet, but yours sounds good.

Sometimes we all need a reminder.
My wife’s boss doesn’t drink whiskey. I hear he is a nice enough man and though I’ve never met him, I have a feeling we wouldn’t get along. I’ve heard that there are people out there worth talking to that do not drink whiskey, but I don’t know that I’ve found one. I have a hard enough time understanding folks who prefer scotch to bourbon. But no whiskey at all? That’s kind of a stretch. Anyway, my wife’s boss received a bottle of whi...

What year? 2011 on my shelf is better than 2012, 2013 (only by a nose), and 2014.

Still my favorite bourbon to sip on to date. Price point is creeping up...now $29.99 USD at my bottleshop, but still well worth it.

Perfect for grilling on the deck in my favorite spot!
