We talk a lot about the rising costs of whiskey, in particular bourbon, but this morning I was thinking about how fortunate I've been lately to buy some really nice bottles at or very near their retail price. Some of those bottles have been among my favorites and I realize that more than I'd just b…

Open the Bottle - Jack Daniel's Bonded Tennessee Whiskey and Triple Mash Whiskey are two recent releases from the maker of the best-selling whiskey in the world, Jack Daniel's Old No. 7 Tennessee Whiskey. I always wanted to try the Bottled In Bond expression from Jack but it was travel retail only …

I've been excited to taste this unusual collaboration between a small distiller in Colorado, Leopold Bros, and a large, very old distiller in Tullahoma, TN, George Dickel. Todd Leopold dug deep into the history of rye whiskey distillation in America to find a forgotten piece of technology in the th…

I believed that the science was clear. Whiskey prevents COVID but it turns out that just because I haven't gotten COVID and I drink whiskey doesn't mean science. Dan caught COVID. So, we're trying something new and going live in two different locations.

Also, it is possible I did have COVID before…

We blamed our guest, which is the proper protocol I believe, for some technical issues that it clearly looks as if I caused. We restarted to back out and try the very next live stream from June 3rd. Sorry, and thanks.

Cheers!

After a false start for technical difficulties, we dig into lots of whiskey with Dan's brother-in-law, Scott. Turns out, Scott is a funny guy with some decent insights into whiskey. We try something new in the Nelson's Greenbrier Tennessee Whiskey and revisit some old favorites in an Elijah Craig B…

My wife is amazing! She came home this week with a surprise bottle of the collaboration between @GeorgeDickelUS and @Leopold Bros. which I've really wanted to try. My few experiences with Leopold Bros haven't been awesome but I'm thrilled to try this one. Todd Leopold is so well regarded and has d…

Dan is traveling again this week for a very cool cycling-related project. So, it's just me and the two new @Jack Daniel's releases.

I picked these two bottles up just before going live so I hadn't spent much time reading about them other than the articles my mom sent me. Thanks, mom! I've wanted t…

Open The Bottle - Dragon's Milk Origin Small Batch Bourbon Whiskey

Here's something from a company I'd certainly heard of because I love their Dragon's Milk Bourbon Barrel Aged Stout beer. It makes sense that if you're good at fermentation, you could be good at making whiskey and that plays out …

Makers of delicious Dragon's Milk stout beer are into whiskey now!

Dan has been under the weather this week and also has a school function to attend with his daughter. I remember from when my kids were little that it is frowned upon for parents to show up to school events smelling of whiskey. So, you just have me today which may work out fine because I want to tal…

We went to Moab, UT last week to ride bikes, take pictures, and shoot video for our new venture, Dawn Patrol MTB. So, we figured we should drink some Utah whiskey in the form of High West's Rendezvous Rye.

Last week we opened what used to be my favorite Booker's batch after deciding Dan's birthday Bardstown batch had taken that crown. Let's sip those side by side and see what we think. And then we'll sip other stuff too.

Cheers!

Back to the Bottle - Four Roses Small Batch Limited Edition 2021 Bourbon

This is the first bottle that I can say would truly tempt me to pay secondary prices for whiskey. It's my new favorite whiskey, not just bourbon, favorite whiskey ... at least at the moment.

It's so very good and if you get…

We've talked a lot about Heaven Hill bourbon lately. Let's button that up today. Elijah Craig Barrel Proof store pick and a super cheap Evan Williams are on the table to sip.

Dan is back! No fooling. We open up the new Castle and Key Bourbon and sip other whiskey on Dan's final day in his 30's. Tomorrow, he turns 40 and, as we all know, it's just downhill from there. I'm what he has to look forward to.

Cheers!

While I haven't chased unicorn whiskey in a long time and frankly, I never really did, I have accumulated a few bottles at reasonable prices that have increased significantly in value. My inclination is to open those bottles, share them with friends, and enjoy them but I'm second-guessing that thin…

Redbreast 12-Year-Old Irish Single Pot Still Whiskey

This is a wonderful example of a single pot still Irish whiskey. Beautiful on the nose and delightful on the palate. Nutty and fruity, clearly influenced by the Sherry barrels it spent time in but not in an overbearing way. I've bought these bot…

Happy St. Patrick's Day! Let's sip some Irish whiskey. Let's also sip some McKenna 10 year BiB since Henry McKenna was born in Ireland and then let's see how different the standard McKenna 80 proof stacks up to the 10-year-old Bottled In Bond expression. But then, how would the Heaven Hill 7-year-o…

It was Bottled In Bond day this week! Let's sip some BiBs and toast that 1897 legislation that made whiskey better for us all.

Good times.

Back to the Bottle - Knob Creek 9-year-old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey

I like Beam whiskey and certainly like Knob Creek Bourbon. This one is a favorite for under $30 and may well hold its own with bottles costing quite a bit more.

Good for sipping and makes a fine Old Fashioned too. Cheers!
