I'd pass on this one. Get a shirt or a logo'd glass instead if you have money burning a hole in your pocket while at the gift shop.
Sour mash fermenting is the process of adding a little bit of a previous batch of fermented mash to your current fermentation run. It’s done to adjust the pH so that the little yeasties have a slightly more ideal environment for eating, growing, procreating and excreting precious, precious alcohol. But what happens at the beginning of the cycle when there isn’t any leftover sour mash left? Well then you’d do a non-soured, or sweet, ...

Sometimes, returning to the roots isn't such a good idea. I mean think about it, how many things are great straight off the napkin into production? Not that many, it takes some tweaking. I applaud the efforts at WR but, like you I believe that some things provide better memories than others. Next time I'll get a hat.

Knew this was coming 
Today through Fred Minnick, we found out that Heaven Hill's Elijah Craig will move on without its 12 year age statement. According to Fred, it will soon be a blend of 8-12 year old barrels. To many...

Just tried a shot of this, great taste. Poured some with lemonade 👍👍. Have to try the chocolate and jalapeno honey.

Yum. Even with a new Master Distiller picking them, Gift Shop releases never disappoint.
Change is hard sometimes. That’s an understatement, right? For examples see the uproar after any change on any social network. Change is so hard for people to take that even rumors of change can cause news articles to be written. (Real headline from Fortune on New Years Eve 2015: Facebook Might Change It’s Newsfeed.) Change is especially hard when it involves something you really like. Years ago, I ran the art department of a magazin...

This is an ok bourbon. But I try not to pay $130 for ok.
Ever pay money for an expensive bourbon only to find out that it’s…not bad? I mean one that is fine, but for the price you were kind of expecting…better? The it’s a decent bourbon, but not for it’s price range sort of thing? I honestly hope you haven’t. Unfortunately, I have. Numerous times. And I’ve shared them with you. Numerous times. And it saddens me to say that tonight I’m going to be doing it again. Wild Turkey Diamond Anni...

A comparison without judgement of the various Heaven Hill Bottled in Bond Bourbons
Tonight I finally get around to presenting the If You’ve Had… that inspired the whole idea, Heaven Hill’s line of bonded bourbons. Heaven Hill has a lot of bourbons in their bonded stable. I believe I got all of the readily available ones (even if only in Kentucky). But in any case there are enough that these were compared to one another over the course of a few days. As a refresher, the set up is like this: "If you've had Whiskey A t...

Nothing beats a bourbon dinner in the heart of bourbon country. This is the neatest place to visit, too.
Enjoy a sampling of Kentucky’s famed spirit while enjoying a four-course, bourbon-inspired meal by the fire.

this is a good one.
Out of the blue, last night, a friend of mine asked me if I wanted to go see a movie with him. He’d been given two tickets to a showing of a RiffTrax version of Starship Troopers and figured that might be the type of humor I’d be interested in. He was right. Though I hate watching bad movies, I love seeing people make fun of bad movies. You expect it to be bad, then it turns out to be good. Heaven Hill Bottled in Bond is a 6 year old...

I liked it more than last year, but less than regular Woodford Reserve.
Once a year, Woodford Reserve releases a new whiskey in its Master’s Collection Line. Each release is a an expression of curiosity and experimentation. Woodford likes to tout its “five sources of flavor: (water, grain, fermentation, distillation and maturation).” In each release of the Master’s Collection they change one of those five things. Previous years have mostly included changing either the grain or the maturation, though there...

Sometimes knowing what not to buy again is as important as knowing what you want to buy again. Yeah. That's how I'm going to spin this one.
So there I am. I’m in Bardstown for the Kentucky Bourbon Festival and I get a the idea to go bourbon shopping. I know, shocker! Right? Anyway I tend to like Heaven Hill Bonded products. Evan Williams Bonded might be one of my top 3 favorite inexpensive (sub $20) bourbons. JW Dant won the Bottom-Shelf Brackets a few years back and I remembered liking both Old Fitzgerald and Heaven Hill Gold Label (when it was still a thing). So I ...

Apparently when those movies/books were written it was worthy of being asked for. Today? Not so much.

Merry Christmas to me!
Really enjoying the Big Horn Bourbon. It's young, only batch 16, aged a couple years but has a light but rich flavor, very drinkable.

I'm very much enjoying that Russel's. Waaay different than the norm but exciting nonetheless.
