Not sure where the whisky madness ends. My liquor store whisky aisle looks like a Walmart aisle with dozens or maybe hundreds of brands no one has heard of or tried. At the price, it is impossible to buy and try too many or you end up with a collection at home your neighbors won’t even drink. I’ve gone back to a basic bar of Weller 12 yo. for sipping and Bulliet or Woodford Reserve for mixing. I spend my money on several good Irish whiskies and am done with chasing the perfect bottlle of American whisky.


The problems we face today are there because the people who work for a living are now outnumbered by those that vote for a living.

Or Tennessee.


Ironically, a lot of the distillers in Kentucky and Tennessee outsource their distillate from MGP in Indiana; then store the barrels to age in Kentucky/Tennessee

Including the following:
Angels Envy Rye
Belle Meade
Bulleit Rye
George Dickel Rye
High West (Wyoming)
Whistle Pig rye
Willet Rye

Because it gets so hot in Texas summers, the distillate gets pushed iin and out of the oak barrels to a much greater extent. This creates a more oaky product in a shorter amount of time. So many don’t prefer the combination of a young, oaky whisky—which is what you’ll get from most Texas whiskies.

Kentucky bourbon is all about the water used to make it.

They also have just about the ideal climate to age whisky in barrels. Hot enough so that it takes on some of the tannins from the barrel, but not so hot that you end up drinking liquid wood chips.

I'm not a bourbon drinker, and that darn corn whiskey Garrison makes at over $100 bucks a bottle is harsh in my opinion and gives me instant heart burn.

I am Canadian whiskey drinker on ice, drink a 1.75 bottle a week on average.

If you want to splurge on some Canadian bourbon the Alberta Premium Cask Strength Bourbon and Rye get outstanding reviews.

I was pretty excited when my wife got me a reserve bottle for my birthday one year. I wouldn't pay for it personally-it wasn't very smooth.

I understand but technically location isnt a criteria. The process is, 51 percent corn, new white oak charred barrels, certain proof going in barrel, 4 years minimum age and a few more I'm sure I'm forgetting.
