Wyoming Whiskey’s Small Batch Bourbon Whiskey – Review

*Sincere thanks to Wyoming Whiskey and Colangelo PR for the sample. Someone very near and dear to me grew up on the plains of South Dakota and Wyoming. Many years/lifetimes ago, on a monumental cross-country drive west, I remember him, upon emerging from I-80's trip through the almost unbearable flatness of Nebraska, practically breathing a … Continue reading Wyoming Whiskey’s Small Batch Bourbon Whiskey – Review

George Remus Repeal Reserve Straight Bourbon Whiskey, Series II – Review

**Sincere thanks to MGP Ingredients and Gregory + Vine PR for the sample. A man named Morris Sheppard, a Democratic senator from Texas, is occasionally referred to as "the father of Prohibition" because of his involvement in three pieces of legislation during the 1910's. He co-authored 1913's Webb-Kenyon Act which regulated the interstate shipment and … Continue reading George Remus Repeal Reserve Straight Bourbon Whiskey, Series II – Review

Old Ezra 7 Year Old Barrel Strength Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey – Review

*Sincere thanks to Lux Row Distillers and Common Ground PR for the sample. Luxco's Ezra Brooks brand has a relatively fascinating history. Established in the latter half of the 1950's, Ezra Brooks' made-up name, label, and bottle shape were deliberately designed to take advantage of Jack Daniels' popularity. Predictably, things got downright litigious. While the … Continue reading Old Ezra 7 Year Old Barrel Strength Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey – Review

While newer Evan Williams Single Barrel vintages are available, they will not be the same as the one reviewed here. This was one of my … Continue reading Evan Williams Single Barrel, 2007 Vintage – Review

Rossville Union Master Crafted Straight Rye Whiskey – Review

Seagram Lawrenceburg Plant, is responsible for a great many whiskeys one sees out on the shelves. They have been providing some very … Continue reading Rossville Union Master Crafted Straight Rye Whiskey – Review

Blood Oath Pact No. 4 Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey – Review

Another year, another Blood Oath bourbon release from Luxco. And another year where I find myself desperately, frantically searching for some blood oath related factoid or anecdote to help ease us into the review. You just can't dive right in, immediately bleating on about mashbills and cask types - that fails to set any kind … Continue reading Blood Oath Pact No. 4 Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey – Review
