New Bourbon Rumor: Larceny Barrel Proof

by Andrew Owenon April 13, 2018
Wheater fans, start rejoicing!  A label for Larceny Barrel Proof just passed through the TTB today (see the picture above, taken directly from the TTB’s website) making a release sometime in 2018 seem likely.  Keep in mind that just because a distiller submits a label for TTB approval, there is no guarantee that the whiskey […]

by Bobby Longon April 11, 2018
The Jefferson’s brand of bourbons was created in 1997 by Trey and Chet Zoeller.  Jefferson’s, named after American Founding Father and 3rd President Thomas Jefferson, started as – and still is – a non-distilling producer who sources the bourbon it bottles from various distilleries.  In the early 21st century, the Jefferson’s brand was acquired by […]

Woodford Reserve

by Andrew Owenon December 15, 2017
The Woodford Reserve brand has been around since 1996, but it is produced at an ancient (albeit renovated) distillery that has been producing whiskey since the late 1700’s outside of Versailles, Kentucky.  The distillery has changed owners a number of times, but has been continuously distilling since it was built except for two brief periods […]

Wild Turkey 101

by Andrew Owenon December 13, 2017
Wild Turkey has been a stalwart on the Kentucky bourbon scene since the 1940’s, and its modern day iterations seem to have a fairly polarizing effect on the whiskey drinking populace.  Many firmly entrenched whiskey enthusiasts are extremely fond of the Wild Turkey line of bourbons (this author included), yet there seems to be a […]
