Before I dive into this review, I want to talk about cheese! “Wait… but that’s not how bourbon reviews are supposed to start!” That’s alright, keep reading, you’ll be fine. It’s common knowledge that cheese pairs really well with a nice glass bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon, only, as soon as I discovered the release of Sonoma County […]
Stolen. Just the name inspires curiosity. Is it really Stolen? Who is it Stolen from? It’s such a simple name but honestly I think it’s marketing genius. I don’t know about you but I have seen massive amounts of pretty awesome looking social media posts for this company for a little while now starting with […]
Booker’s 2017-02 “Blue Knights Batch” The second 2017 release of Booker’s Small Batch, now four batches a year, “Blue Knights Batch,” is named after the Blue Knights® Motorcycle Club, an organization of retired and active law enforcement officers who love motorcycles. Wait, what? I thought Booker Noe made whiskey, I didn’t know he was a […]
Smooth Ambler, which is based out of Maxwelton, West Virginia, is a relatively new whiskey company. However, despite how new this distiller is they are making waves in the whiskey world. They source most of their whiskey (which is nothing new), but one thing that is new is how transparent they are about their process.
Legend has it that Johnny Drum was a boy who wanted to join the civil war in the 1860’s and left his home in Kentucky. Unfortunately Johnny was underage at the time so he could not join as a soldier and instead served as a drummer boy, hence the name Johnny Drum. After the war […]

Eagle rare is a ten-year-old bourbon from Mash bill #1. For those of you unfamiliar with buffalo trace they have two basic mash bills that most of […]
Booker’s 2017-01 “Tommy’s Batch” Towards the end of last year we all witnessed a rumor come to light. Beam Suntory announced a price hike and a reduction in the number of batches of our beloved Booker’s Small Batch being released each year. Thankfully, with 2017’s first Booker’s release “Tommy’s Batch”, we’ve got confirmation that the […]
Blade and Bow is a whiskey I have wanted to try ever sine I first heard of it. Diageo owns this brand and while there are those out there who don’t like Diageo for being such a conglomerate, usually including myself, I am a fan of this offering from them. Blade and Bow is sourced […]
Standard Knob Creek is a good go to pour if you find yourself somewhere without a large selection of bourbon. We all know the places, you hope they have something good but it’s just Maker’s Mark, Jim Beam, Knob Creek and god forbid Jack Daniel’s. Luckily for those of us that appreciate bourbon, Beam Suntory (the […]
So awesome to be able to get our hands on this limited release! A collaborative effort from Manifest Distilling and Bourbonr.com pulling together sourced product to be able to release while the distillery patiently waits for their own juice!
This limited bottling may have flown under most people’s radar during the craze of 2016, but the release of Four Roses Limited Edition ‘Elliot’s Select’ Single Barrel is still one of the top prizes on our list of “Best Bourbons Year 2016”.
