Little Book Batch 2: Noe Simple Task

by Bobby Longon October 23, 2018
Beam surprised the majority of people in the whiskey community in 2017 when they announced a new limited release whiskey that would not be a bourbon.  Nor would it be a rye whiskey.  How about a blended whiskey!  Wait, what?  If you’re like me, blended whiskey is often associated with what we may call “rot […]

Booker’s Bourbon Batch 2018-02

by Bobby Longon September 13, 2018
Another week, another Booker’s bourbon review as I get all of the gaps filled in to keep you up to date with what’s currently on store shelves!  The second batch release of 2018, dubbed “Backyard BBQ”, is currently on shelves pretty much everywhere alongside 2018-01, leftovers of 2017-04, and in some areas a brand new […]

Old Granddad 114

by Andrew Owenon September 11, 2018
On the heels of last week’s review of the bottom-ish shelf Old Granddad Bottled in Bond, it seems fitting to follow up with its “big brother”, which clocks in at a hefty 114 proof and does not have an age statement, and typically only costs $3-5 more than the bonded version. For a bit more […]

Booker’s Bourbon Batch 2017-04

by Bobby Longon September 6, 2018
I’ll save you the introduction, as this is now the fourth batch of Booker’s we’ve reviewed here.  My reasons for reviewing multiple batches are simple:  not every batch tastes the same – some are much better than others – and it’s not uncommon for you to be picking between two different batches at the same […]

Jim Beam Distiller’s Cut

by Robert Dianaon September 5, 2018
Jim Beam whiskey has been around for a long time.  Like a really long time.  Legend  has it that Jacob Beam sold his first barrel of whiskey under the name “Old Jake Beam Sour Mash” back when the United States of America was still a teenager.  And over the course of a couple centuries, no […]

Knob Creek Cask Strength Rye

Knob Creek Cask Strength Rye

by Bobby Longon June 26, 2018
Knob Creek rye whiskey, launched by Beam-Suntory in 2012, has by all accounts been a successfully consistent and solid mid-shelf rye whiskey over the past several years.  In late 2017, Beam finally threw fans of the whiskey a bone by announcing that a new single barrel program would be launched for Knob Creek rye, with […]

Old Overholt Bonded Review

by Andrew Owenon April 18, 2018
Old Overholt has been around for a long time.  And I mean a long time.  Like so many modern Kentucky rye whiskeys (such as Rittenhouse, Michter’s, and Pikesville), Old Overholt was initially a rye whiskey produced in the New England area during the period between the late 18th century and Prohibition when Pennsylvania and Maryland rye dominated […]

Basil Hayden’s Bourbon

by Blake Cortrighton March 28, 2018
Basil Hayden’s Bourbon is part of the Jim Beam “small batch” bourbon line, which also includes Knob Creek, Baker’s, and Booker’s.  The brand was launched by Beam in 1992 to commemorate Meredith Basil Hayden Sr, a historical figure whose family name is tied to the creation of the Old Granddad line of bourbons, as well […]
