    Final New Bourbon Review and updated Top 25 of 2004-5 . . .

    Bourbon/Rye season. This isn't my last sip of bourbon or rye for the season, and although it may happen slowly, soon when temperatures get to a certain point, I will no longer be able to savor, much less imagine the myriad flavors of the candy-like pure American spirits of bourbon and rye...

    A New Top 25 Bourbon List as The Classic Cask 18 . . .

    year old finds its place. The bourbon/rye season is winding down in Bloofingtonia. :duh: As temperatures rise, soon the Burmese python will arouse from its lethargy and demand rats. Large rats, four or five of them, wondering why it's gone from two or three feedings a year to one since...

    A New Bloofingtonian Top 10 of Rye and final review . . .

    on Old Potrero Straight Rye Whiskey, the 90 proof and current version of Anchor Distilling's 19 Century Style American Whiskey. After five or six two shot tastings, this whiskey has just grown and grown on me. While I would have liked to have tasted the original barrel proof release of this...

    Jim Beam Black and ANOTHER New Top 25!!! . . .

    It was a hard choice, but after kicking out the last of the Eagle Rare products from my Top 25 bourbon list, I had to kick out the Elijah Craig 12 year old. It is nice bourbon, and in the "classic" mode, at least for me, that being oak, candy apple, maybe one or two other flavors, but Jim Beam...

    Final Placement For Fighting Cock and A New Top 25. . . .

    Fighting Cock Bourbon - thanks to the Colonel, I've now had the pleasure of nearly a bottle's worth of tastings of this very low priced solid bourbon. Nice spicy oak, with apples and dried figs, a little bit of maple syrup, a crisp snappy taste. I just wish it had a longer finish. A worthy...

    New Top 25 Bourbon List. A big and unexpected . . .

    shakeup in my Top 25 caused by recent tastings of the new Pappy Van Winkle Family Reserve 15 year old, a refined 107 proof bourbon, new product, and highly recommended. I believe you should not pay more than $50 as your "walkout price", inclusive of any and all shipping, taxes, etc. It was...
