Back to the Bottle - Elijah Craig 18 Year Old Single Barrel Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey

I'd wanted to try this bottle of bourbon for a long time and I'm glad I was finally able to, even if it was expensive and I wouldn't buy another one. Why? Well, you'll have to watch for all that but I don…

We are in agreement that this Cream of Kentucky Bottled In Bond Rye is terrible. But just to be sure, we shared some with a few friends to get their take as well. We also sent along some of a one-of-a-kind American Single Malt from Deerhammer in Buena Vista, CO. It is quite tasty and we hope it mak…

Open the Bottle: Balcones True Blue 100 Proof Straight Corn Whisky

We got into a few different corn whiskeys a while back during a Friday Sip Live and this one was a standout. I'm not sure I'd pay the $45 I paid for it again, though it seems to sell for more lately, it's good to get out of the bou…

We all drink many different bourbons, ryes, and single malt whiskeys and decide for each if we like it, if it is worth the money, and if we'd buy it again. It can be very helpful to have a baseline whiskey that you've spent plenty of time with to use as a counterpoint when the lines get blurry. Not…

We have so much fun on Friday Sips Live every week and appreciate everyone who joins live and who listens after. Recently, we were talking about the Cream of Kentucky Bottled In Bond Rye whiskey and how bad it is and we decide to share some samples with those who were watching live to get their opi…

Luckily, we liked some of this Friday's bottles. If all you ever go after when you want wheated bourbon is Pappy Van Winkle or Weller, you're going to be disappointed often. We get into some Rebel Yell, Woody Creek, and Redemption offerings.

Cheers!

Dan recently had the opportunity to taste the latest release of what was certainly one of the best bourbon releases of 2021, the Russell's Reserve 13-year-old bourbon. I have a bottle, I love it, and I want more but before we assume every Wild Turkey produced bourbon is a home run, what did Dan thi…

Dan has been out for the last two Fridays, though he did join in and comment last week from Denmark. So, what was he doing and how was the whiskey in Denmark? Was there something rotten in Denmark?
Let's sip some bourbon and find out. Remember, as Chevy Chase said, "a donut without a hole is a Da…

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…

Thanks to everyone who watched live and who will watch after.

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.

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…
