Yellowstone Select Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey – Review

When I first started writing about this one, I spent a fair amount of time going down a rabbit hole or wolf hole or elk hole researching the history of the Northern Rocky Mountains wolf (Canis lupus irremotus) in Yellowstone Park. Suffice it to say, the post was getting a bit too unwieldy and un-whiskey-related. … Continue reading Yellowstone Select Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey – Review

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

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

Evan Williams Single Barrel, 2007 Vintage – Review

*I don't think this qualifies as an "archival bourbon" review, but please note the whiskey in this review is a slightly older, limited bottling and likely not readily available today. 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

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
